  • For Women – “Women with Attention Deficit Disorder” is an essential read. It explains why many women with ADHD have similar characteristics – perfectionism, very hard-working, people-pleasing, avoid conflict.
  • For Men – “Taking Charge of Adult ADHD” is an in-depth overview written by the ADHD “guru” Russell Barkley. He does a great job of explaining what’s going on in the ADHD brain in an ADHD-friendly way.
  • For Couples – “The Couple’s Guide to Thriving with ADHD” is very practical with good information for couples especially if one person has ADHD and the other doesn’t.
