A.D.D. Kaleidoscope: The Many Faces of Adult Attention Deficit Disorder by Joan Andrews, M.S., M.F.C.C., L.E.P., Denise E. Davis, M.S., M.F.C.C. (Excellent large, comprehensive book not only for ADD adults, but for teenagers, families and professionals as well. The ADD is discussed in detail - the cause, the symptoms, recovery, medications, help in the workplace, addictions, relationships, etc. The authors cite several case examples throughout the book. The book is easily read and understood and appears to be up to date).
Honey, Are You Listening? How Attention Deficit Disorder Could be Affecting Your Marriage by Rick, Dr. Fowler, Jerilyn Fowler (This is a fantastic book that I recommend to not only anyone who is married to a person with ADD, but for the ADD partner as well. The Fowlers found several methods to help their marriage as Rick has the ADD and will help you understand how different your ADD partner thinks. Many suggestions include: learning how to get your point across to your ADD partner, organization skills, dealing with finances, anger and adjusting to hyperactivity and impulsivity. The ADD partner tends to become overstressed, irritable and "tunes out." The book discusses ways of dealing with this. Dealing with ADD kids is discussed, the advantages of being an ADD adult, and much is written about learning difficulties and how to overcome poor study habits. Highly recommended).
You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?! : A Self-Help Audio Program for Adults With Attention Deficit Disorders Cassettes by Kate Kelly, Peggy Ramundo "I first bought this book strictly because of it's title. Having spent 45 years feeling crazy & stupid and being accused of laziness most of my life, I decided this book was for me. I didn't realize how very right I was! When I started to read I realized I was reading about myself. I identified with many of the descriptions of ADD from childhood through to adulthood. It was incredible to learn I was not alone in my daily frustration. This wonderful, informative book started me on a road of self-discovery. I was subsequently tested and diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder. The authors describe this "disability" as an "ADD-ed dimension" and they are so right! I now have self-esteem and self pride. My intelligence has been tested and verified .. I'm not lazy, crazy or stupid and I thank the authors of this book for that discovery. This book has changed my life. I can now read a page without losing my place. I don't forget what I'm saying or lose things as often. I have learned that I am one of many who use an additional area of my brain & must therefore learn to "process things differently". I no longer feel timid, ashamed, afraid or just plain different. I can now accept and like myself for the first time in my life."
