I had read a lot of Adult ADD books. This was the one that convinced me to run my ADD, rather than let my ADD run me.

More Attention, Less Deficit: Success Strategies for Adults with ADHD, Ari Tuckman, Specialty Press, Inc. 2009.

I first want to say that this cover cracks me up. Here’s this book about “more attention,” and you have a photo of a boss-type showing something to a young business man and a young business woman who appears to have ADHD. How do you know she is the ADHD one? Sure, she’s smiling at us conspiratorially so we get that she is happy and overcoming, but…. she’s also not paying a lick of atten

Shelves: attention, adhd
Was written for someone who has ADD. I loved how the corners of the pages were perforated to mark as read, each article stood alone and was no longer than 2 pages, and the material did repeat some but that is good for someone with ADHD. I ended up purchasing this on the Kindle and we will see it that is a good medium to consume this "ADHD bible" as others have coined it.

Spot on. Helps me understand all my ADD/ADHD friends and co-workers (including boss)! Podcasts by Ari Tuckman are also awesome.

Great book! Very well organized and thorough without being so information-heavy that it becomes boring. I didn't actually read the whole thing, but that's ok, because the book said you don't have to. This is part of the reason why I liked it so much; it was organized into short sections, so you can jump around to what you're looking for easily. It also has one of the best general descriptions of ADHD I've found in a book or article.

I was recently diagnosed with inattentive type ADHD. The diagnosis has opened a world of possibilities for me. I REALLY appreciate the format of the book and the chapters dedicated to family and spouses living with someone who has ADHD. So far, I am having an epiphany every other chapter. If I had been diagnosed and treated early in my life, a lot of heartache could have been avoided.

Love this authors podcasts, He really "gets" what it's like to live with ADD/ADHD. Both having it and living/working with people who have it. The title says it all. More attention and less deficit.

Of all the ADHD books I've read so far this was by far my favorite. Clear, comprehensive, and very ADHD friendly.

“Our minds automatically seek explanations for things, so when we don’t know something for sure, we make assumptions. For someone with ADHD, her symptoms are clear but the explanation isn’t, so everyone makes assumptions about why she doesn’t do better. Of course, all the old familiar explanations are used—she just needs to try harder, she’s irresponsible, she doesn’t care enough, she wants to do badly. This very much adds insult to injury. Not only doesn’t it help her do better, but it just makes her question herself: “Huh. I thought I tried my best on that, but maybe I didn’t.” Initially most people tend to fight back against these accusations, but over time the accusations begin to sink in and influence how people see and feel about themselves.” 3 likes
