Good Books on ADD
Mar 21, 2005
Thought this might be helpful to just about everyone... If you have been helped by a certain book or author, let us know! We might find it helpful too.

My 2 favorite books are by Sari Solden:
"Women with ADD"
"Journeys through ADDulthood"

"Women with ADD" is a very thorough book which describes the difficulties women face in life from young school age to college and dating, and in the workplace, and being a housewife (or not), and romantic relationships, and raising kids. It touched me very deeply because she validated all my problems and the emotional baggage that resulted. I actually cried at one point in this book because no one else had put it so perfectly. It was like she knew me personally and understood completely. I highly recommend this book.

"Journeys through ADDulthood" is for men and women who were NOT diagnosed as children. Having found out in adulthood, there are things that we missed along the way that other people take for granted. This is why so many of us seem to lag behind in certain situations, and feel so unfullfilled in our work and relationships. This is NOT a book for people who want to learn about the basics of ADD. This book is for people who have already learned about ADD, and now they are ready to DO SOMETHING ABOUT THEIR LIVES. She takes you step by step, showing how to move past your ADD and see the "real" person that has been hidden since childhood. Then she helps you use this long-lost information about yourself to help shape and direct your life from this point forward. It is very straight forward and not new-agey at all (like Thom Hartman's books which were way over my head) I think this is a must-have for anyone who is ready to take a new direction in their lives, and move past being an ADD victim to being a well-rounded human being who just happens to have ADD.
The best book I've found for explaining meds is "Brainstorm: Understanding and Treating the emotional storms of ADHD".
