The Complete Idiot's Guide to Adult ADHD Review and Giveaway...

I just got through reading The Complete Idiot's Guide to Adult ADHD! This book is great for those with ADHD or those who know some one with ADHD! Read a simple explanation of what ADHD looks like in adults. Find age-specific strategies for managing ADHD in your daily life. Great tips and an easy to read book that's very helpful.

A thorough examination of a misunderstood condition.

Though it's traditionally thought of as a childhood disorder, a growing body of research is bringing awareness to the fact that ADHD often contin­ues into adulthood, though its symptoms often take on a different form and make the disorder more difficult to diagnose.

•Covers what ADHD looks like in adults, how symptoms can vary greatly from one person to the next, and how it often gets misdiagnosed

•Includes information on related conditions that often coexist with adult ADHD, including depression and anxiety

•Discusses various treatment options-pharmaceutical, behavioral, lifestyle, and alternative approaches

I would like this book. My son has ADHD, but not the hyper version,he has the hypo version. That means he has a hard time alerting himself. This never gets talked about.

I raised a daughter with ADHD....before there was a lot of info on it. Very interesting...found she preformed better without dairy, and sweets were only for weekends. She is still experiencing difficulties in her adult life, and I think this book will really help her in coping and dealing, and more importantly understanding this condition! Thank you for hosting this book giveaway.
It is good that more people are beginning to recognize and understand the difficulty that ADHD people experience. (Drugs did not help my daughter, it made symptoms worse, so she has gone solo all along)
