The best book I've read on the subject yet!
Would you try another book from Gina Pera and/or Pam Ward?
What could Gina Pera have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
As with all audio books, a pdf downloadable reference would be nice.
What didn’t you like about Pam Ward’s performance?
Pam is one of the best narrator's out there as she is clear to understand, uses appropriate intonation at the right times and keeps the material interesting and moving.
Any additional comments?
I've know for about 6 years that I have ADD. However, until now, I have never really understood the true significance of ADD throughout my life and the impact on others. Gina's book has helped me see that ADD is likely a significant piece if not the smoking gun underneath years and years of anxiety, depression, poor performance, great performance, outbursts, confusion, lack of direction. low self esteem, great ideas (according to me) and, well, you know the list. It's clear I haven't always been treating the appropriate issue.
Thank you Gina for all the research and effort it took to produce your book and thank you for providing a little clarity to a rather unfocused mind. Wow, what a difference it would have made 40 some years ago when us 40+ somethings were in grade school!
A must read for those with ADD, think they might have ADD or are living with someone who has ADD.

Not a fluffy treatment of ADD/ADHD
Very difficult topic, well documented and expanded. However, after a few hours it felt like a hammer hitting me on the head, I was waiting for some "good" news, but I feel more discouraged about my condition the more I listen. I'm sure the author is not intending to do so, but to inform well so we know what we're dealing with. I'll be looking for encouragement in connected fields of therapy and personal development. Still, I recommend this book.
