Summary

Sari Solden specializes in working with ADD adults and their partners. Her first book, Women with Attention Deficit Disorder, has sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide. Now, in Journeys Through ADDulthood, she takes a groundbreaking look at the emotional turmoil often precipitated by ADD and offers listeners roadmaps to richer, happier lives. 

Living with ADD affects the development of one's view of self, especially for those not diagnosed until adulthood, after an entire childhood of feeling "different" without knowing why. There are no quick fixes - Solden takes a longer view of the challenges and sees living with ADD as an ongoing internal process. Journeys Through ADDulthood is a step-by-step guide through three stages, or journeys: toward understanding your brain and your primary symptoms; toward discovering your true identity and embracing your uniqueness; and toward learning to share your true self to connect with others. 

Illuminating her points based on the real-life journeys of two men and two women, Solden offers self-help exercises at the end of each chapter to point the way around common roadblocks on the road to empowerment, self-fulfillment, and the realization of long-buried dreams and goals.

Very relatable

Everything in this book is so relatable, really felt like I am not alone in this journey and that there are ways to manage ADHD without it detracting from who I am as a person. I have been through all the stages she describes and it is so accurate. I enjoyed it.

moments of guidance and clarity

I found this book had me stopped still and listening and nodding 'yes that's me!!!' Which was followed by relatable character studies and advice on how to progress along the 'journey' of ADHD. I think I will purchase a hard copy to scribble in and help me keep referring back to where I am on my journey and what I might want to consider next. really helpful.

Learn the general from a big-picture perspective

The realization of how your ADHD brain influences behavior so undetected may occur in cycles. This book takes the read through phases of the characters lives that you can relate to in more ways than one. It is a pleasurable audio book to listen to over a road trip. Overall, I felt a sense of connection, affirmation, and confirmation that was comforting.

Obviously the acceptation is a process or a step that we need accomplish and they develop this topic very well. It is one of my favorites books about living with ADHD.
