Summary

If you are a woman with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you've probably known - all your life - that you're different. As girls, we learn which behaviors, thinking, learning, and working styles are preferred, which are accepted and tolerated, and which are frowned upon. These preferences are communicated in innumerable ways-from media and books to our first-grade classroom to conversations with our classmates and parents.

Over the course of a lifetime, women with ADHD learn through various channels that the way they think, work, speak, relate, and act does not match up with the preferred way of being in the world. In short, they learn that difference is bad. And, since these women know that they are different, they learn that they are bad. It's time for a change.

A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD is the first guided workbook for women with ADHD designed to break the cycle of negative self-talk and shame-based narratives that stem from the common and limiting belief that brain differences are character flaws. In this unique guide, you'll find a groundbreaking approach that blends traditional ADHD treatment with contemporary treatment methods, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), to help you untangle yourself from the beliefs that have kept you from reaching your potential in life.

Plagiarised

This is a poor imitation of the real book. Please have a look at Sari Solden’s website for more details.

There isn’t an audio version of this book, but the hard copy is great!

Frustrated because I do prefer audio to text.

touching

the struggles I've had that I couldn't find words for were finally said. I was hoping to get more guidance on practical tools to use, but it wasn't really about that.

Great for therapists, great for clients!

this book did an amazing job of bridging the intersection between ADHD and gender-based psychology. This book focuses heavily on the impact of those two dimensions on self-image and self-esteem. It uses solid CBT frames to gently but effective nudge readers along a path of change. As the husband of a woman with ADHD this helps me be a more supportive ally. As a clinical psychologist, I found this book helpful for working with my female clients facing sexism and the impacted of ADHD. Well Done!

Eye opening

I went to Therapy a few years back and was given a ADD assessment test. I tested highly likely of having ADD but kind of just excepted it and went about my life. But after listening to this book I realize how much it’s actually affected me. I feel like the lightbulb has been turned on in my brain and soul and now feel like I may have the motivation to actually move to path of happy healthier life. Thank you so much

Nothing tangible

It’s another self help book instead of straight info. Wish it was less motivational vibe and more hard facts.

Pertinent analysis and useful activities

I really enjoyed this book and found myself taking notes at times. The content is deep enough to cause self reflection.
Some of the wording is quite useful e.g. brain based challenges, and I have implemented a few tips in my daily interactions which make me less apologetic about my challenges
