Where does Focused Forward rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
A new take on ADHD. I loved the part talking about the neuroscience behind daydreaming as part of the Mental Support Group & Emotional Safe Place. Also knowing that the ADHD brain is wired to be more trigger happy with the limbic system, the tools to calm the inner lizard - when it inevitably thinks that performance review is an attacking T-rex - was super helpful.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Narration was a bit stilted in places. And although bullet points and parenthesis make for good visual variety in a book, it was a bit crazy making listening to punctuation being read out loud as "bullet point", "quote", "end quote", "parenthesis", "end parenthesis".

While the content was nothing short of brilliant, the reading was a little distracting. And for an ADD mind like mine, that meant there were a few points I had to listen to repeatedly just to hear them. The main cause of the distraction for me was everytime the reader paused the narrative to say "parenthasis" or "quote". I don't need the verbalized puctuation to get the point. In fact, in most cases, it stopped me from getting the point. I pushed through the little annoyances, however, because the content is just so great. Thanx for writing such an awesome book about the emotional side od ADD. It has made a huge difference in my life. Now on to the next shiny ADD book.

amazing book if interested in understanding the emotional side to adhd. Ochoa also give unique far-out tools to do this and feel good, ballanced more of the time.
I need to listen again to actually get any concrete use from this, but it was good the first time around so I am happy to do so. As someone who is still trying to understand the condition and its role in their own life, it's a lot to take in, however there are many subjects that resonated with me. True words in the book though: take what you need and leave the rest. As far as narration goes, it was okay, but perhaps a little monotonous at times, I had trouble staying attentive... but maybe that's just me. His repetition of "parentheses" phrases was comical at first but got a little grating after a while. I suppose that's what happens when reading quite literally aloud though. Worth a listen or a read for those trying to figure themselves out.
