To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Mostly a rehash of the other "Distraction" books. Just buy one - we like "Delivered from Distraction" the best. Pair this one with "You mean I'm not Lazy, stupid or crazy?" and you'll be in good shape. For heaven's sake avoid "Adult ADHD: How to Succeed as a Hunter in a Farmer’s World." That book is useless. The "Delivered from..." and "You mean..." books are full of practical advice and move quickly past the idea that ADHD people are miraculous etc. We all have strengths and weaknesses, but ADHD doesn't make you miraculous as claimed in the "How to succeed as a hunter..." book, which is utter nonsense.
I don't like giving low ratings but I need the author's attention. I know you have a lot of really important things written in this book. A lot of ppl in the community said so.
However, I couldn't read this because the format wasn't meant for me. I had to get my boyfriend to read it. I need pictures, colors, more boxes, highlight of key sentences and summaries at the end of each chapter. Please, less words. Too tiny. Too black and white. My head hurt.
My mind drew a blank and all I saw were big lumpy clouds of tiny alphabets but it was as if my head and my eyes have some sort of metal helmet that won't let me retain what it's trying to say.
I think I have ADHD, but while my psychotherapist is preparing a formal test for me.. while I am deciding if I want medication or not, it's really hard for me to read this so-called "ADHD Bible" because my brain can't hold focus.
I wish ADHD books are ADHD-friendly, formatted for ADHD people.
Also, the little stories may help other people but it doesn't help me. Yes, the bit I have read is relatable but they're so boring, predictable and even redundant. Do other ADHD types need this many examples? I believe you, I believe you. That I'm not alone and that these people exist and you know what you're talking about.
Can we get to the concentrated juice of the thing you're trying to say that will help us? Please take cues from Susan C. Pinsky's book.
This book is sort of an introduction to ADHD for the 1990s. It's full of stories of people who struggled for some unknown reason, and were later found to have ADHD. This book would have been helpful 20 years ago. Now we already know ADHD exists. Most people are looking for books with explanations as to what ADHD is and how to manage it.
I bought this book expecting it to be informational nonfiction, but when I browsed through the pages it is actually a lot of switching between POV-first-person Memoir mode to nonfiction, and I find something like that to be jarring. I cannot read a book like that.
