ADHD 2.0 New Science and Essential Strategies for Thriving with Distraction from Childhood Through Adulthood

Dr. Ned Hallowell (https://drhallowell.com/)

Some of the ADHD PEI executive are currently reading/listening to this book. We'll give you some more detailed feedback when we are done, but so far it's really good!

This book can be great for sorting out the emotional fallout from being diagnosed with ADHD later in life, particularly if you are a woman. 

"It really helped me start to untangle years of internalized negative messages. I haven't checked out her newer book 'A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD' yet, but am looking forward to it." ~ Pam

This is a great book that dives in to the various aspects of ADHD with information and also practical advice for the adult with ADHD to help manage common life situations.

PERSONAL TIP: If you aren't good at sticking with a book, or already have read lots about ADHD, then start with Chapter 16 for the practical stuff and then work on the first section at your own pace.
