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".

If you must have the information in this book, I strongly recommend purchasing this in print form. I personally was distracted and irritated to the point of not being able to absorb what is likely great and useful information. The frequent reading aloud of parentheses and bullet points could have easily be avoided by using inflection. With hopes of declining frequency (parenthesis, of the reading aloud of parentheses and bullet points, end parenthesis), I tried to muster through this audiobook. There are only two more chapters and I just can NOT. I normally wouldn't write a negative review, but if I can save just one person , it will be worth it.

I've got ADHD so it wont be the longest review! But this book has been the most helpful and intelligent book i have ever listen to and has changed my life with regards to how i feel about myself and with how i cope with my life. I am much happier and productive then i was before still with struggles sometimes but now with a stratigues and an anchor. Listen to it. it can be hard to get through it because so much good infomation but well worth it.
