ADHD ADDults: The Ultimate Success Manual by Jim Livingstone is exactly what it claims to be. Many children with ADHD have been helped through school and university, but what happens to ADHD children that grow up to be ADHD adults? Everybody assumes that with medication readily available that ADHD children are cured and that they have become thriving adults with no more ADHD problems. Parents of adult children with ADHD and spouses of ADHD adults will tell a completely different story. Jim Livingstone presents a perspective that will speak to non-ADHD people about the challenges faced by adults with ADHD and will find resonance with ADHD adults and the mothers who have trod the path of ADHD. Livingstone shares insight and wisdom gleaned from a lifetime of experience. Now, in his seventies, he describes how being diagnosed at forty-five years of age changed his life and how what he learned he can help other ADHD adults deal with the challenges in their lives and be able to achieve and hold on to success.

Jim Livingston wrote ADHD ADDults with adult ADHD sufferers in mind. Looking back on his life, he writes about the obstacles and dangers that could derail the ADHD adult. Writing in a manner that will hold the ADHD reader’s attention, he shares information and affirmations, and visual aids to relieve boredom and reinforce what he is discussing. He teaches that ADHD adults have unique gifts that should be seen as positive rather than negative and that being different is not a disorder. As the mother of a child with ADHD who has now become an adult, it was wonderful to read his insights. I could identify my child’s actions, thought processes, and emotional fluctuations. It is refreshing to finally have something that can explain to others how an ADHD person’s mind and thoughts work, as well as have a guide that can teach my child to be a successful adult with ADHD. ADHD does not have to mean poor relationships or being unable to keep a stable job. Anyone with an opinion on ADHD and adults should read this.
