Additional Information

This book is about using strategies for adult ADD or ADHD to make your life better.  It has more information, too, especially about studying and learning, but it's really about strategies.

It is personal; it tells of how I and my patients and my friends cope, and sometimes fail to cope, with our ADD ADHD.

So it is not particularly scientific, and doesn't go much into the basics, like the history of ADD or how it's diagnosed, or causes, or treatment, though it does have some of that.

But what I'm trying to say is, it is about strategies, what you can do to make your life better.

I'd read only a few pages of Dr. Puryear's book before I unexpectedly began to recognize myself. It wasn't the idea of making lists on colored index cards (although one of the first things I did after starting the book was buy a pack of colored cards). I've always kept lists, not to help me remember things (well, now that I'm 62, yes, to help me remember things) but to help me feel less overwhelmed by all the stuff running through my head. Keeping notes on backs of old envelopes? Yes, I do that too. Probably picked it up from my mother, who even cut up old tissue boxes for something to write on. When I realized, however, that the drawer in the side table next to where I usually sit was so crammed with old envelopes and scraps of paper that I could barely open it, I began to wonder. Then there is the clutter in my office, so much that I can't make myself work there and I can't make myself clear it away, obviously because I'm lazy and sloppy. Always being late for things (one therapist... Read more
In my attempts to deal with my ADHD I have bought several books - and have been disappointed each time. The problem has been that each book seems to go over the same ground (what is ADHD, symptoms, how to tell if you have ADHD, medicate or not, general approaches to living with ADHD -- and then a few strategies that are pretty much the same as in the last book!

What Dr. Puryear has done in Your Life Can Be Better is, first, to take you inside his own struggles and successes in dealing with his own ADD in a way that takes you inside your own or that of a loved one. Second, the book is strategies for dealing with your own ADD or ADHD - and the strategies are doable and, in my experience, of tremendous help. That's why this is the one book to buy!

What you get for your $16.95 is a sensitive and often funny look into the life of a very bright and insightful professional dealing with his own ADD, a guidebook into adopting and creating strategies for your own, and a... Read more
For years since I was diagnosed, I felt like I needed some sort of instruction manual for dealing with my mind's peculiarities. Where other books, Driven to Distraction included, offer anecdotes and general strategies, Your Life Can Be Better is the manual I've been looking for.

The author, Dr. Puryear, has ADHD himself, and has treated the subject matter in a personal account of the many strategies he has developed in the course of his life for coping with ADHD. The book is laid out well, and each chapter is short and concise.

I was riveted when I read it, and immediately started using a number of the tools in the book. This is definitely my missing manual, and I'd recommend it to anyone with ADHD, and even people without ADHD.
