Dr. Tuckman has provided us with a richly detailed discussion of ADHD in adults and especially how it should be managed, directly written for the adult with ADHD in mind.  Wonderfully supportive and informative, this book provides countless recommendations for addressing the myriad symptoms of poor self-control and time management, inattention and disorganization, and impulsive and careless behavior that afflicts nearly every major domain of life activities for adults.  The book should prove enormously instructive for both adults with ADHD and for clinicians who specialize in its diagnosis and management.

This valuable book will help adults with AD/HD and those who care about them, have a greater understanding of the disorder – and more importantly -learn what to do about it.    Written in a very user-friendly manner, the book can be read in any order the reader finds useful.  Packed with strategies for successfully managing symptoms, adults with AD/HD will also find ways to come to terms with all that the disorder adds and subtracts in their lives.  This is no small feat, believe me!  An excellent resource from an author who really “gets” what it is like to have AD/HD. (This is my personal opinion. CHADD does not endorse publications.)

This is the first book I have read where a healthcare professional has conveyed an accurate overview of the coaching process and how it fits into the whole, comprehensive picture of successful ADHD management. Dr. Tuckman’s book represents an excellent educational resource, for not only understanding ADHD, but as a strong starting point to identify potential strategies which can powerfully enhance the treatment of ADHD.
