Good in general

Good in general though somewhat dated (eg. Makes reference to DSM-III, instead of DSM-5 (which includes adult ADHD), doesn't reference newer drugs. research etc).

Best Book I Have EVER Read

Extremely easy to understand. I've struggled with focusing and distraction for 40 years and thought I was lazy until this book was recommended to me and found it describes me in detail. You'll know if you have ADD by page 100 and learn about symptoms and steps needed to take control of your life.
