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,  accepted, tolerated, and 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.

Many people associate ADHD with children, but ADHD can also continue into adulthood. Often, the symptoms experienced by adults differ slightly from those experienced as children. These symptoms can present a range of challenges in the workplace, relationships, and in the sufferer’s personal life.

Women especially with ADHD in their lifetime, 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 differences are bad. And, since these women know that they are different, they learn that they are bad. It's time for a change.
This guide will explain exactly how ADHD presents itself in adults and how to tell if you or a loved one may have the condition.

In this audiobook, various topics will be included, like:
 

  • Children with ADHD versus grownups with ADHD
  • Diagnosis, analysis, and thoughts about the dangers or benefits
  • Social hardships women with ADHD face
  • The question of whether or not ADHD can disappear in a person as he/she grows older
  • Nonmedical treatments to fight the symptoms
  • Thoughts on the effects of more or less sex on people with ADHD
  • And many other subtopics

If you are looking for proven effective treatments to get your ADHD under control and take back your life, this audiobook will be your go-to guide.

May be scientific, but condescending and negative

While this book may be scientifically accurate (I haven't verified the claims) I struggled to continue listening. I found the author's language about neurodivergence very negative. Referring to neurotypical people as "normal", calling this divergence a "disease" and discussing brain size and function in a non-tactful way very early on in the book making me to feel ashamed and very negative about myself and prospects of ever being able to improve on myself (after all, my brain is smaller and dysfunctional).

I also found some of the tips unhelpful as they felt like "just do better" rather than careful step by step suggestions on how to implement the tips. One particular section said "don't take on too much, only do what you can" followed by "finish everything you started".

I wasn't able to continue past chapter 10 to see if the book becomes more positive and helpful.

I also found the choice of male narrators jarring for a book about ADHD in women by a female author.
