If you suffer from ADD please get this book for your partner. It could save your relationship or at least get them to understand your frustration.

If you could sum up ADD in Intimate Relationships in three words, what would they be?
Educational, Helpful, and Exhaustive
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would have cut out the medical jargon and the explanations on the brain and various medications
What does Stefan Rudnicki bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Because of the medical terms used in this book, if I had to read those terms myself the flow of reading would have easily been disrupted and would have probably cause me not finish the book
What did you learn from ADD in Intimate Relationships that you would use in your daily life?
There are a list of things that are given at the end of the book that I would go back and write out and print and made available to me everyday.
Any additional comments?
This book is very good on presenting cases of relationships and educating people on what ADD is. Personally I think this book is best suited for people if 1) you have not read Dr. Amen's book "Healing ADD" 2) you somehow suspect or think that you or your partner has ADD 3) you are diagnosed with ADD and you want more information on the topic.
Most of the book (2/3s of it) was filled with information I already heard in Dr. Amen's book "Healing ADD" and I almost gave up on the book since my hope in reading the book was to get information more along the lines of treatment or suggestions in changes I could make to improve my relationship with my wife given that I have ADD. The book does have this information at the end of the book and I found that to be helpful. Also what the book does very well is describe behaviors or relationships when one or both (or more) persons in the relationship have ADD.
At the end of the day unless you fall under the 3 categories I mentioned above I wouldn't recommend this book to you. And in the case of the third category, if you are just interested in getting more information about ADD I would suggest Dr. Amen's book "Healing ADD" instead.
