Ari Tuckman does a fantastic job of explaining executive functioning and helping adults with ADHD develop practical and effective compensation strategies. I love that he does not take the one size fits all approach, instead he offers a variety of options. Also, this book encourages you to think about your ADHD and evaluate your strategies. One of the best books out there. Tuckman really "gets" ADHD.

“Unfortunately, ADHD makes it easy to misinterpret your actions and what they mean about your traits and skills. For example, repeatedly forgetting about meetings could be interpreted to mean that you’re irresponsible or even stupid, even if you’re very diligent and intelligent.” 0 likes
