It sends the wrong message about ADD.,
By A Customer
This review is from: You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?!: Self-help Book for Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (Paperback)
While this book does have moments, for the most part, it seems that it is sending the wrong message about ADD. It makes ADD seem to be something bad, something which needs to be cured by the use of drugs like Ritalin. ADD research has come a long way since this book was written, and ADD is now seen more as a blessing in disguise. It is different way of thinking and interpreting the world. It isn't something that needs to be cured. There are far better books on the subject, such as ADD: A Different Perspective by Thom Hartmann. This book, on the other hand, could actually have dangerous results for people who read it. It may have an answer, but it may not be the right one.

I know that the book MAY have an answer,that is why i going to read it. I also accept that there are probably better books on the subject but one must start some where. My god,i am only just getting to grips with the fact that i may,just may have AAHD. I can assure you that the realization of this is,quite frankly mind blowing for me. I had come to the conclusion after 50 yrs on gods earth that there may be something inside me that is different from other people and that realization is,for me anyway just f.....g brilliant. I cannot wait for the book to arrive. Thom hartmann's book may indeed be better but i am just starting on a very long road to acceptance and i must start somewhere.
