Kate Kelly & Peggy Ramundo (2006) You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy
The best way I can describe this book is that it is the “How to” for understanding Adult ADHD. This book was one of the first written about adult ADHD and continues to be a solid pioneer about Adult ADHD. It is thorough in its information and entertaining throughout.
Linda Roggli’s (2011) Confession of an ADDiva: Midlife in the Non-linear Lane
A great new book on the market for women with ADHD! Linda is the quintessential ADDiva and writes about her life with ADD in a very candid, funny and completely engaging way! Once you start you will not want to put it down…and I will tell you now to buy two copies because you will definitely want to give this book to one of your ADDiva friends!
Ari Tuckman’s More Attention, Less Deficit: Success Strategies for Adults with ADHD
Ari’s book is straight forward, clear, comprehensive and to-the-point. Despite the wealth of information presented, it is a very easy read, formatted specifically with the ADD brain in mind. Each section and topics are in professional yet easily understood language, with a great summary at the end! If you are just finding out about ADHD, this is a great book to have on your shelf.
Nancy Ratey’s The Disorganized Mind: Coaching Your ADHD Brain to Take Control of Your Time, Tasks, and Talents
Nancy is one of the founders of ADHD Coaching and as such has over 15 years of experience to draw from when writing her book. Her approach for getting back control of our lives follows this coaching approach, helping us become self-empowered in managing our challenges.
I am a big fan of You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy. This is a great list of resources. I had no idea that the “365” book had come out. http://www.adultswithadd.net is another great site with links to well-respected books.
