Highly recommended by women who have ADHD/ADD and by those who work with them, Understanding Women with AD/HD really breaks new ground. While the book is full of tools and strategies to meet the particular challenges women with ADHD/ADD face, the authors also wrote this book to bring overlooked or ignored ‘women’s issues’ into the open. Their hope is that the book will start discussions, generate interest, and spark research into women’s issues. It certainly has done that.
But for most first time readers the book will serve as a relief, a comfort, and a guidebook to moving forward and making informed choices.
And the book will also trigger the same reaction that all of the best ADHD/ADD books do, “I never thought of that. But that’s me! I do that! It isn’t just personal weakness or a quirk in my personality, it’s a result of how my mind works.”
