Description: Self-Help Book for family members of adults with ADHD
Book Review: This is a wonderful, much-needed book specifically for the spouse/partner or family member of an adult with ADHD. It provides important background information for understanding and recognizing the condition and its treatment. It insightfully discusses the panoply of feelings such as frustration, guilt, or discouragement, evoked by ADHD in a loved one. It goes on to address such important practical matters as how to talk to a loved one about getting professional help for ADHD, helping your loved one understand and accept ADHD, and advice for living with an adult with ADHD, The book is written in a conversational, easy to read style. In short, I have no doubt that this book will be enormously helpful for anyone who has a loved one with adult ADHD.
