I love this book, I have ADHD and my three sons too. Over the years I have tried to read many books that would deepen my understanding of ADHD and give me a helpful roadmap to better cope with the challenges. Books generally get clinical fast, so I put them down and walk away. The readability of this book is amazing. I laughed, cried, and had a few revelations while reading. There is no doubt that I have a better understanding of what I live and look forward to applying the ideas, especially the emotional ladder, my ADHD came with very high emotions! I look forward to sharing this book with other family and friends. Thank you Dr. Rosier!
I appreciated the balance in this book - clear concepts; discussing the real problems for those who have or love ADHD - and what to do about it; practical application of real coaching and wonderful stories that help humanity to cope with the problems of this community (of which I am a part). I felt noticed, appreciated - and reassuring. A wonderful balance of science, real client experience and anecdotes that were warm, inspiring and challenging.
Practical application tools - worksheets, questions, models - right in the book! The author could have made an accompanying workbook, but included it right here.
Rich, diverse and diverse sources of research, information, metaphors and examples - from Alice in Wonderland to scientific papers and sound theory to Doctor Who! And - it is written so as not to get hung up on only one area. A small snippet of research for credibility, a concept statement for understanding, then a story/anecdote to illustrate. Makes the book very readable.
