Publisher's Summary

If you have ADHD, your brain doesn't work in the same way as a "normal" or neurotypical brain does because it's wired differently. You and others may see this difference in circuitry as somehow wrong or incomplete. It isn't. It does present you with significant challenges like time management, organization skills, forgetfulness, trouble completing tasks, mood swings, and relationship problems.

In Your Brain's Not Broken, Dr. Tamara Rosier explains how ADHD affects every aspect of your life. You'll finally understand why you think, feel, and act the way you do. Dr. Rosier applies her years of coaching others to offer you the critical practical tools that can dramatically improve your life and relationships.

Anyone with ADHD - as well as anyone who lives with or loves someone with ADHD - will find here a compassionate, encouraging guide to living well and with hope.

Great book

I really enjoyed the contents of this book, however a PDF with all the questions & assessments in the book is necessary. I’m debating whether I should return the audiobook & buy the physical copy or the kindle version. Pausing the audio book, especially at the end, & answering all the questions 1 by 1 is not convenient nor is it ADHD friendly. I also found the narrators voice to be super monitor which at times made it hard to stay focused. Kind of funny for a book about ADHD.

Don’t let the publisher dissuade you!

As a non-Christian, I was hesitant to purchase a book from a Christian publisher. I was pleased to find out that the author makes any sort of religious reference (i.e. god and the creator) twice in the entire book. It does not present a heavy-handed or preachy view of Christianity or any other particular faith practice. I’m glad I gave it a try because Dr. Rosier provides clear, actionable advice on how to live with ADHD.

HOWEVER, I do find it exploitive that a book obviously targeted at people who struggle to focus would neglect to include the appendices in a PDF along with the title. I have purchased several books from audible about a wide variety of topics that included PDFs far less useful than these would have been. That is a major and disappointing oversight by the publisher.

Overall, I am pleased with both the content and performance of this audio book. I highly recommend it for any person living with ADHD. If you can do it, the print or other visual version will better enable you to put Dr. Rosier’s advice into action.

Thank you!

This woman is a genius! This book opened so many windows into my own life, career, relationships, and emotions. It’s emotional being exposed to this type of understanding. Overwhelming realizing uniqueness of your struggles with a sense of community knowing you’re not alone. Thank you!

Love the book - HATE the narration

Its mechanical and sterile and not at all fitting for the subject or conducive for listening beyond the annoying narration. Especially with a brain like mine, that’s truly a shame…

Highly recommend!

I think this book is as important and essential as Dr Russell Barkley’s books and J Russel Ramsay’s The Adult ADHD Toolkit book. The grid she designed for color coding tasks and how to deal with them and recognize our false beliefs..is genius to me! It would go really well with an ADHD coping system I’ve been trying to develop for myself (combines Atomic Habits principles and the bullet journal method and tracking).

I just wish this had a PDF companion!! I need the grid the author mentioned laid out in a drawing and questions to ask oneself to be written there as well. Otherwise it is too hard to keep up and try to implement it by listening alone. Please Dr Rosier add this! If you need help putting it together or designed you can hire a freelance graphic designer online for a reasonably small fee. I’d do it myself if I had time.

Life Changing...

Recently got diagnosed with ADHD at 24 years old. Never occurred to me that I would have it, so I got this book hoping to learn more. I felt like I was reading my autobiography. Gave me confidence in the diagnosis as well as practical strategies for where to begin with managing ADHD. Thank you!!!

Excellent explanation

I’ve never had a book resonate with me as much as this one does. Explains so much. I struggle with emotional regulation but this explained it in a helpful way and introduced little things that can help when I start to spiral.

This book feels like a hug and a high-five and healing at the same time.

I wish my parents had had this book when they were raising me.
I wish I had had this book when I was little and when I was a teen and in my 20’s and early in motherhood.
But I’m sooooo incredibly grateful that I listened to it now rather than later.
What an incredible book!

Useful

Thus book takes a different approach to others I've read or listened to, and provided me with new options to try. As someone with ADHD, the reader's style was unhelpful: soporific, at times it's obvious that she's not really engaged with the material herself. A more animated reader would help me focus and absorb more information.
