I am working on the 10th draft of the ADD book, and am waiting for input from two reviewers and finishing from another before I can start on draft 11. Then I have one more final reviewer and then it goes to the copy editor. I will meet next week, I hope, with the illustrator. Yes, it will be illustrated!!
The book gives the personal stories of a psychiatrist, his friends and his patients, using strategies to handle their ADD. It has a lot about strategies for studying if you have ADD (or even if you don’t) and so will be useful for students. It also contains much on choosing an occupation and how to be successful. The point is that strategies will make your life better, and it give some examples of exactly that.
It will be published in the fall. That will show how using strategies to persevere in difficult tasks can lead to success, even with ADD or ADHD.
Doug, Just checked your blog, and am so glad to see your
progress in the publication area- Congratulations!! I think the
book will be a big help to many people You did a great job-
this wasnt really from me, but when i showed my siseter how to check out the blog i left her with my site which she is using. thank you sis, for your support
Sounds like and interesting and exciting book and I am eager for it to be finished so I can read it. A lot of people in my family have ADD and I think it will be useful for me to read about it from a psychiatrist perspective. Also liked the orchid picture. Keep up the good work!
