Publisher's Summary

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (Also known as ADHD) presents itself in three main symptoms: inattention and hyperactivity or impulsivity. Hyperactivity and impulsivity are closely related and oftentimes coexist with inattention. Women and girls with ADHD most often go undiagnosed for several reasons. This is due in part because women tend do have less obvious or less misbehaved characteristics than men do.

Men usually have hyperactive or impulsive forms of ADHD, while women more often suffer from inattention, which causes us more difficulty staying focused, paying attention to details, remembering things, focusing, and listening to others without interrupting.

What makes it even worse for us women is that a lot of the characteristics of the inattentive form of ADHD, such as being impulsive or shy, are oftentimes not viewed as symptoms but rather as character flaws or personality traits. However, women with ADHD struggle just as much, if not more, than men do.

In 87 Tips and Tricks for Women with ADHD I attempt to teach you different tips and tricks you can use to manage your ADHD in seven main categories: 

  1. Time Management
  2. Remembering Things and Apps and Electronic Gadgets
  3. Managing the Kitchen and Other Household Essentials
  4. Moms with ADHD
  5. Managing your Money and Personal Life
  6. Social Skills and Calming Emotions
  7. Managing Organization and Clutter

If you are suffering with Adult ADHD, you need this book on your bookshelf! So don't wait any longer. Order your copy today!

horrible narration

I couldn't finish it, the narration was so horrible! I didn't even make it very far into the book. I just couldn't...😖

Not what I expected

This may be the “feel better about yourself” kind of read some people need, but it wasn’t for me. It was just the things we (people with ADHD) know we need to do, but struggle to actually implement. It had absolutely no depth. Also, I found the narration to be grueling!

Felt patronizing and sexist

I realize this book is for women, however it’s very sexist and stereotypical.
The narrator sounded like she was reading a rule book to 5 year olds.
This may have been more helpful if it was written in the 50s.
To be fair I only made it halfway though the book because I have ADHD and have more things I’d rather do than listen to this.
I tried to ignore the tone, I tried to imagine it was being read the way the author may have wanted it to be read, but my brain said that was too much work when I’m already being read to.
I hyper focused so much on hating her tone that I missed some of the “tips”.
Also I don’t live in a “gender norm” household. My man makes dinner, does the dishes and the laundry. I fix the cars and work on the house.
These tips need to be less hetero typical.

Great book

I have had issues my entire life with oversensitivity, brain fog, and disorder. I never considered that my issues might stem from ADHD. It explains so much and helps me see how I can manage my environment so I can be happier.

A wonderful book

This is one book that I would certainly put on my list to purchase!! I have been told by several people over the years that I have ADHD, but I never really believed it.

Excellent

A great resource for women with ADHD. I’ve read quite a few books on the topic, and this one will be one of my go to’s for motivation and tips down the road.
