Not the most well-written book, and using message-board comments as an organizing structure limits the scope of the book. That said, I feel that I understand the difficulties and abilities of ADHD partners much more fully. Best of all, I know how to react in a much more productive, respectful way.

Simply amazing!

I absolutely loved this book! Real life and practical solutions for coping with A DVD are what I've been looking for, for the past year. This is a must have for any couple with ADHD in their life.
