Publisher's Summary

Is there a link between ADHD and other mental issues? Do you want to learn the potential negative effects of ADHD medications? If yes, then you are in the right place.

ADHD is a mental health condition characterized by several chronic issues, including difficulties paying attention, hyperactivity, and impulsive conduct. Adult ADHD may cause shaky relationships, poor job or academic achievement, low self-esteem, and a variety of other issues.

If the ADHD symptoms continue to interfere with your life despite your best attempts to control them, it could be time to pursue professional assistance. Treatments for adults with ADHD include behavioral coaching, individual counseling, self-help groups, career counseling, educational aid, and medication. Although it's termed adult ADHD, symptoms begin in childhood and last throughout maturity. ADHD is not often noticed or diagnosed until a person is an adult.

This audiobook covers:

  • Causes of ADHD
  • Adding organization and subtracting distractions
  • Life management tools for adults with ADHD
  • How to create empowering environments
  • Self-coaching program: practical strategies and actions you can implement on your own to change your situation right away
  • ADHD and women
  • The Importance of meditation
  • And much more...

Whether you're a caregiver with a kid or an adult looking for new coping techniques, this audiobook provides a comprehensive approach to offer a guide for identifying and dealing with ADHD. This audiobook is particularly useful for people who have just been diagnosed with ADHD. Still, it may also assist those with ADHD for a long period and have yet to master the necessary executive functioning abilities. Don't allow ADHD diagnoses to hold you back; instead, learn the abilities you'll need to recover.

So what are you waiting for? Get yourself a copy of this audiobook.

Much needed for ADHD

This disorder affects more and more people but is ignored by many and taken smugly by others, this manual will help you raise awareness of the issue and understand what is behind this issue and how to approach people who suffer from it.

It had been great for me

Through this audiobook, I became aware of my ADHD circumstance. I accepted and understood my characteristics of hyperactivity, impulsivity, restlessness and my difficulty to pay attention and finally, because of the advice given here, I manage and take care of myself more including my emotions and thoughts which is something difficult but I followed step by step the author's guidelines and it has been possible, not completely but it has been a great advance.

motivating audiobook

Managing ADHD has not been as easy and practical as this audiobook allowed me to do. I was fully aware of the symptoms I have and dealt with them in order to get a job, get into a support group and generally improve my social skills. I know it is not easy but I believe it is possible and I also believe that this audiobook is a great help, listening to it is very good and motivating.

The ADHD situation was a problem that I was not able to handle well. Thanks to this audiobook, I gained the power of meditation and self-control to finally understand my condition and assist it in mindfulness. The meditation techniques helped me a lot to manage it. I highly recommend it, it is certainly very helpful for ADHD codition.

Outdated and quite annoying!

As an adult woman recently diagnosed with ADHD, I was highly motivated to listen to this. However, it has several major flaws. Firstly, the author repeats facts many times often within a short space (is this because she thinks we won't remember what she's said previously?!) Secondly, the narrator sounds like a robot and keeps pronouncing ADHD strangely, with the emphasis on different letters for no apparent reason. This may sound nitpicking but the term ADHD is used literally hundreds of times so it becomes somewhat grating. Thirdly, the book is very USA focused which I hadn't realised when I downloaded it (I'm in UK). A more global perspective would've felt more inclusive and relevant. Finally, and most seriously, the book repeatedly refers to ADHD as a mental illness, abnormality and disease. I think this is outdated and open to reinterpretation considering at least one in ten people worldwide are suspected of living with ADHD. Might the neurodivergent brain instead be seen as another version of so-called normal which is only seen as problematic in the context of our post-industrial lifestyles and the rigid expectations of our education systems? Benefits of an ADHD brain are only briefly mentioned. I shall look for a more up to date and encouraging ADHD book to listen to.

Lost interest

Being 100% honest, I haven’t really listened to much of this but the sheer repetition of “ADHD” i found annoying…also the fact that it’s referred to as a “disease” is shocking (may have picked up wrong due to perception difficulties.) you can cure most diseases, you can’t cure ADHD. It’s a disability.

Do not waste money on this.

If you have ADHD/Autism this book says you have a disease. This is offensive to those of us with these conditions and highly misleading to those without them. The narrator struggles with longer or more technical words and the production is amateurish to say the least.

Remarkable

Among the points made in this book is the fact that although it is called ADHD in adults, the symptoms begin in childhood and last into adulthood, but that it is usually detected and diagnosed when the person is an adult, in order to be treated.

She sounds like a robot. Perhaps she is. I should've listened before purchasing this ebook.

Good

ADHD in adults is a fascinating topic, both from a clinical point of view and from the perspective of research and speculation. This audiobook is a good starting point for detailed information about the disorder and its manifestations.

Brings many good things

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a mental illness. In people with ADHD, there are differences in the parts of the brain that control our ability to plan, organise and concentrate. This is highly recommended.

Very important

I think this audiobook is very important because it covers all the research, facts and causes of ADHD, which adds organisation and reduces distractions; thanks to the life management tools for adults with this type of personality disorder.

Timeliness

This book is the opportunity to learn that hyperactivity in adults may diminish, but that impulsivity, restlessness and difficulty concentrating may persist; however, they can also be treated by following the guidelines contained here, always seeking calmness and a better lifestyle.
