The ADD strategies book- update —– Tip o the day 46

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.


About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
