Publisher's Summary

My name is George Sachs. I'm a clinical psychologist and expert in adult ADD. I also have adult ADD, so much of what I teach comes from my own personal experience. I have experimented with many methods on the market with much trial and error. Lots of errors! I was never satisfied with the books I read on adult ADD, as the advice was hard to follow and was clearly not created by someone with ADD. The tools, tips, and techniques I developed for this audiobook have been field tested by me and my clients.

This audiobook is just the beginning of a lifetime of learning about your unique symptoms. In 30 days, you will learn what critical areas of your life need more attention. Many of my clients have tried medication, hoping for a miracle to cure their worst symptoms. The truth is medication can be effective for some, but most of my clients stop taking it because of the side effects - and then where are they? No better off than when they first started. That is why I coach them that they need to learn tools and new techniques to better manage their lives with adult ADD. That is what this audiobook does - offering 30 days of holistic, actionable advice that can be implemented immediately. With no negative side effects!

I believe in a holistic approach that starts with sleep, diet, and exercise, and that includes emotional, relational, and spiritual practices to truly overcome adult ADD. This audiobook deals with more than just tips to become more organized. We examine the impact of a life of untreated adult ADD and how that affects self-esteem, relationships, and overall success. The key word is overall. That is our holistic approach, because adult ADD affects all areas of one's life.

A useful tool for those with ADHD

This is an easily digestible book for those with ADHD. There are a lot of good ideas and ways to implement them into your life, with tips on how to make it work for you. Great points about the importance of sleep hygiene and strategies to strengthen your sleep habits. There's a great chapter on hydration because I'm sure many other ADHDers haven't thought about how badly being dehydrated would exacerbate your symptoms.

There is a chapter on nutrition that, while probably intended as a treatise on the importance of limiting excess sugar and unhealthy foods, comes across as needlessly preachy.
The chapter on medication is also less than ideal, but the author does his best to caveat all he says with the fact that medication is a very useful tool for many.

The narrator chosen for this book is stilted and dull, he doesn't always manage to sound like a human reading a book. He sometimes sounds like an alien presenting it's best imitation. If the audiobook was any longer than 3 hours, I wouldn't have made it.

Overall I would recommend this book to fellow ADHDers as a good tool and maybe a good diving board to your own research into some of the topics.

Great strategies.

The reader was robotic sounding but the content was really helpful. I want the hard copy to really integrate it.

Mixed -

many of the suggestions are good, however i am in disagreement with him on fad dieting and his stance on medication.
he should delve deeper into medication compliance. he doesn't address as much as could be in regards to this issue it's as if he is bashing the medical treatment.

Treatment is something that takes several things and often will work best when the person is using medication to help focus.

I have found a much better source of information from several youtubers.
One to look at is "How to ADHD"

My 2 cents./

Wow... This was so useful

I absolutely loved this book. For anyone with ADHD, or trying to get a good understanding of whats going on inside an ADHD brain. This was short, sweet, and it was all just so spot on.

I would definitely recommend this one... 10x!!

Loved it! Resonates Immediately.

Without being overly critical or applying serious listening, the "skimming" of this book by ear was a gulp of fresh air for me. I have long wondered what language to apply when attempting to explain my behavior. If you seem to work best when you should realistically be preparing for the next day or asleep, if you seem to always forget nearly everything only to remember it all a week or so later, if you are chronically late to everything...my friend, you might be an ADDneck!

Why persons with ADHD need extra energy.

Just to accomplish the activities of daily living takes extreme effort, as perfectly outlined here.

Disappointing

Too many of the descriptions of symptoms were simplistic and did not describe the variety of ways that symptoms can occur or not occur.

Good but not great

I enjoyed listening and will go back and listen again even more in depth, the strategies were a little sparse and for that it left me wanting more on specifics of how to overcome debilitating procrastination.

Read some ADD online articles instead

Maybe good for someone just starting to learn about ADD/ADHD, but for the individual who already has a good basic understanding of adhd and its traits this information is quite basic and doesn't add anymore to your aresnal than a simple search on Google would.

Excellent

Clearly written by someone who has lived with ADD and made a success of his life using these easy to understand practical techniques. Cleverly split into manageable sections he makes sense of what it is to have ADD, how it feels inside and how to deal with it emotionally and practically. I learnt so much about my daughter’s condition and how to manage it. Highly recommend this book!

step by step easy to follow tips and tricks

I am/was already self educated about ADHD and so the book is not mind blowing but the structure makes sense and some tips and referrals are always useful. it's short which I think fits the purpose. I recommend the book not just for people with ADHD/ADD but also for the people around them to gain a better understanding.

What I liked is that the tracks are short, straight to the point and the recap of the week.

well done!
