Publisher's Summary

If you are a woman with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you've probably known - all your life - that you're different. As girls, we learn which behaviors, thinking, learning, and working styles are preferred, which are accepted and tolerated, and which are frowned upon. These preferences are communicated in innumerable ways-from media and books to our first-grade classroom to conversations with our classmates and parents.

Over the course of a lifetime, women with ADHD learn through various channels that the way they think, work, speak, relate, and act does not match up with the preferred way of being in the world. In short, they learn that difference is bad. And, since these women know that they are different, they learn that they are bad. It's time for a change.

A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD is the first guided workbook for women with ADHD designed to break the cycle of negative self-talk and shame-based narratives that stem from the common and limiting belief that brain differences are character flaws. In this unique guide, you'll find a groundbreaking approach that blends traditional ADHD treatment with contemporary treatment methods, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), to help you untangle yourself from the beliefs that have kept you from reaching your potential in life.

Not what I was expecting.

Well written. But I felt it was more reminding me and reliving my trauma of undiagnosed ADHD. I was hoping for more proactive steps as a guide might be.

Hard to maintain interest

At first I found it difficult to follow the more complex vocabulary of the book, especially cause I can’t reread the parts I don’t follow. I slowed the narration down a smidge but still hard. I think there are “activities” with in the litterateur but it’s so difficult to know what’s going on. The narration is robot like and mono tone which again does NOTHING for an ADHD audience. There are some good little bits and short stories I could relate to but that’s about all.

Not what I was hoping for

As a struggling single mother, I am desperately looking for tools and actionable advice for my adhd. Thirty minutes into this I knew I wasn’t going to be getting anything out of it and found it to be actually a bit cliche and cheer leader-ish.

If you have read science based books on adhd written by clinicians already, I would skip this. If you have low self esteem due to your adhd then maybe this will benefit you.

The general gist is “you don’t need to change, you are amazing and everyone is different! Girls rule!” (Girls do rule, but we knew that)

Balanced and empathetic - exactly what you need to hear!

I was skeptical when I purchased this book as I am still early in my journey. The messaging has been so aptly written and offers personal experience relating to relevant struggles. I didn’t think I would smile and chuckle as much as I did. Thank you Solden and Frank for your work. It’s definitely made the world of difference for me :)

Absolutely Amazing

I have just been diagnosed with ADHD as an adult woman. This book has helped me laugh, cry & get it into perspective. It also offers usable strategies that I can see will work well for me & my unique brain…. I better go back and write them down so I don’t forget them 😆
Highly recommend
Thank you xx

Incredibly enlightening

Amazing resource both for women with ADHD and anyone in their lives. I don't have ADHD myself but my mother does, and came to her diagnosis later in life. This book is a beautiful insight into the life of women with ADHD and I know my mum has resonated with it a lot. It has helped me understand more about the unique challenges it brings, and the way so many negative self perceptions are generated and internalised by being neurodiverse in a sometimes unfriendly world. Highly recommend it for women with ADHD and those who love them. It isn't a strategy book as such, but focuses more on fundamental self beliefs, growing confidence and authenticity, which are the foundation for everything!

Hoping for more

I was hoping for something a little more scientific and descriptive of ADHD. But it's really a book about low esteem caused by ADHD . if that is you, this book might help.

So very grateful I found this book!

Thank you so much for writing this book. It has given me great clarity and understanding myself and why I have suffered so much through life and felt so lost, felt so much shame and like I don’t belong. Embracing my beautiful brain and celebrating what makes me different around people where I’m loved and safe to be myself is my biggest takeaway. Thank you again !
