With her extensive experience researching and treating adults with ADHD, Levrini provides user‑friendly strategies for setting meaningful and realistic goals, developing a plan to achieve the goals, and staying on track while following the plan. Slip‑ups are normal and expected, so Levrini invites readers to keep a positive, growth‑oriented outlook that focuses on progress, rather than perfection.
Each chapter is full of examples and self‑help activities, such as quizzes and worksheets, enabling readers to apply strategies to multiple areas of life. Special attention is given to the areas of executive function that most adults with ADHD seek help for, and to typical challenges in living a healthy and productive life, including time management, relationships, organization, job performance, and recognizing common coexisting conditions such as depression and anxiety.

This was a very informative and useful guide for people (especially women) discovering an ADHD diagnosis later in life and looking for coping strategies and confirmation of life-long behaviors. Much thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an early digital copy in exchange for my honest review!
My teenage son will be 18 next month and this book comes at a perfect time for him and any other young adult with ADHD about to start their adult life. Dr. Abigail Levrini offers a compassionate and comprehensive guide in this book for every aspect of life that is particularly challenging to people with ADHD: Emotional regulation, time management, organization, academic pursuits, and navigating work and relationships. There are helpful worksheets throughout the book and short “check your focus” sidebars that break up the reading material. She covers thinking errors in the ADHD brain and how to catch yourself and course-correct with new thoughts. I highly recommend this book as a must-have resource for all adults with ADHD and the people who care about them.
