Organizing books fall short of addressing the unique needs of adults with ADD. They fail to understand the clinical picture of ADD and how it impacts the organizing process, often making their advice irrelevant or frustrating when put into practice. Books about ADD may address organization/disorganization but do so in a cursory fashion and on a very small scale.This is a book that has ADD-Friendly advice with the ADD-er in mind. This collaboration brings forth the best underlying understanding with the most effective and practical remedy from ADD experts in two important fields-professional organization and clinical psychology. Finally, it offers organizing advice that ranges from self-help to utilizing the help of non-professionals, to using professional assistance. Thus it permits the listener to decide where they are personally in the organizing process, and what level of support will be most beneficial to their unique situation.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheree | 2/15/2014

    " Regardless of weather you have ADD or not this book has great ideas and tips for anyone struggling with organizational issues. I would reccommend this to most of my Organizing clients for at least one section of the book. It covers it all. Two of the best chapters are the chapter on time management and The Fear of Filing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ariane | 2/14/2014

    " I had scoured over a dozen ADD books at the library, took 2 home and this was the best. Easy to read, great techniques and tips. Simple explanations about what kinds of thinking will work well for ADD. Don't know if I have ADD, but enough similarities that made me instantly bond with the reasoning in the book. For anyone who feels like they can never get anything finished, has a multitude of ongoing projects, can't get ahold of daily living tasks, watches too much TV, reads to escape, and food addiction problems. Loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberlee | 2/13/2014

    " I have a daughter who struggles with this and bought this book for her. She won't read it but I can hopefully make better suggestions now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 2/9/2014

    " If you even suspect you may have ADHD this book is a must read. A collaboration between two experts, one on ADD and one a professional organizer. Excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 2/6/2014

    " I read this on the recommendation of my professor, as well as some other people on a listserv that I frequent. I found it pretty redundant, and sometimes vague. An example of this was the recommendation that ADD adults throw out credit card offers. In this time of identity theft, everyone should be shredding documents, yet those with ADD are likely to miss this step, and it's a pretty significant oversight. Much of the book felt like one giant advertisement for professional organizers, but perhaps others might find it more helpful than I. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ckrippner | 1/22/2014

    " A MUST read or anyone who needs to organize their life. VERY ADD-friendly to read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 1/18/2014

    " This is a psychologist and a management consultant/organizer who have collaborated to give successful tips to adults with ADD on keeping their lives on track. I highly recommend this book to those whose ADD symptoms find distractedness and inability to finish tasks at the top of the list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patti | 1/18/2014

    " This is a must have for people with ADD. I read it over and over when I need new ideas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suellen | 1/15/2014

    " Really great resource for my organizing clients with ADD and ADHD. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 WhiteKanye | 1/3/2014

    " Definitely a book to rather have on paper, though listening to it can be a useful introduction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deyara | 12/15/2013

    " I found this really helpful even though I dont have ADD. It is very clear and has simple yet effective ideas. Some of the book was not relevant to me, but gave me ideas about how to approach organising problems. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DDog | 12/2/2013

    " This book was pretty good. I'm definitely going to take notes from it and see what strategies I can use. I'd already come up with some on my own that are also in the book. Easy to read, lots of examples, many tiers of tips and strategies broken down into logical chunks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 9/26/2013

    " Solid, practical, helpful and quite easy to read and also take section by section. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jason Verwey | 9/23/2013

    " A few helpful tips, but mostly useless. I suppose it would only be of great value to those who have never in there life tried to think about or be organized. The advice is decent, but not very groundbreaking. Pretty standard stuff here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 6/13/2013

    " Another great book that is excellent because since I have ADD I have tried to find ways that I can organize that would be using my ADD and so it is not holding me back. This was excellent! I am trying to implement many of these ideas from here as well! It was great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyn Purpura | 12/13/2012

    " As a life coach for ADD adults I read this - great tips relevant for everyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 11/11/2012

    " Priceless I use it in my job as a life coach for adults with ADD all the time. Very highly recomended. Written in ADD-Speak. "
