Additional Information

Written for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) sufferers yet useful for anyone wishing make better use of their time, this book is abundant with effective strategies for combating problems related to inattention, procrastination, disorganization, mismanagement of time, and poor planning. It begins by carefully explaining the neurologic underpinnings of ADHD and focusing on specific executive functions—the brain-based processes that assist in planning, initiating, and carrying out tasks to complete projects. Then using exercises designed to identify areas that need addressing, it aims to "tune up" these executive functions for maximum productivity. In contrast to many books on ADHD, which can have good ideas but lack practical ways to apply them in everyday life, this guide includes specific recommendations for improving distractibility, working memory, attention, organization, time management, and response inhibition deficits. With strategies based in the science of how the ADHD brain processes information, this reference bridges the gap between knowledge and action.

As a therpaist who works regularly with adult ADHD clients, I have found Dr. Tuckman's original book 'More Attention, Less Deficit' to be extremely informational and descriptive. His writing style and the book's organizatiation are very ADHD-friendly. His new workbook carries these themes into the practical level, with exercises aimed at identifying, simplifying, and reinforcing effective coping strategies. It would also be a choice read for ANY adult who has found more traditional organizational books to be too theoretical or too complex to be of practical use. His workbook bridges basic must-know science and workable daily living skills. Could be used independently as a self-help book or as an adjunct to professional ADHD coaching/conseling. If you struggle to stay on top of a complex life, ADHD or not, this workbook will offer effective guidance.
The problems behaviors demonstrated by people with ADHD are well known, for example: disorganization, forgetting appointments, procrastinating, losing things, displaying emotion inappropriately, and being late. The solution for the ADHD person is not to "buckle down," "just focus," or "finish what you started." Nor is it to simply "try harder next time." "Just remember!" doesn't work either.

So, what works? According to Tuckman: "The solution lies in setting things up to make it more likely that the person with ADHD will stop long enough to consider ... lessons from the past before jumping into action." Tuckman holds ADHD people learn from experience. They can see clearly what they've done wrong in the past. The problem lies in applying this knowledge in the present. What this requires is making arrangements for themselves so they always have the opportunity to apply their past experience in the moment.

Highly recommended for its numerous useful exercises, and... Read more
The problem with using books for ADHD, is 1.retaining info 2.not getting bored while reading.

This one is different!

This books is so helpful because it has you working and answering questions, you can go around to any part you want, and you won't be losing information in the process. I recommend this to anybody having complications in any realm of ADHD.

Also would help even just someone with a busy life!
