Description

Are you smart, scattered, and struggling? You're not alone. Cutting-edge research shows that today's 24/7 wired world and the growing demands of work and family life may simply max out the part of the brain that manages complex tasks. That's especially true for those lacking strong executive skills - the core brain-based abilities needed to maintain focus, meet deadlines, and stay cool under pressure. 

In this essential guide, leading experts Peg Dawson and Richard Guare help you map your own executive skills profile and take effective steps to boost your organizational skills, time management, emotional control, and nine other essential capacities.

Where are the worksheets?

Would you listen to The Smart but Scattered Guide to Success again? Why?

Yes--this is a great book with good suggestions, but the constant reference to the downloadable worksheets is frustrating. As an Audible purchase, it seems like there's only half of the book available.

Online Forms are Not Online

Where are the forms? The websites the book refers to do not exist. It would probably be much easier to follow.
Also I’m reading this because I “Might Have A Serious Case Of ADHD”, (or so they say), but ironically I’m really having a tough time following the readers tone.

Very helpful on a practical level

This is a really great, comprehensive resource that helps you identify executive skill weaknesses and strengths in your kids and yourself. They have an executive functioning self assessment for you and your child/teen. You can download or print this off from http://www.smartbutscatteredkids.com/media/resources/print-articles/. Gives you skills to help yourself and your children become better with time management, emotional control, sustained attention, impulse control, planning prioritization and so much more. Really helpful.

I really like the way it's organized

they explain for each of the different aspects of executive functioning, what we know about it what it looks like a case study what the people do about it and why they're approach works. All in all the way that it's broken down, is very helpful to me in understanding different levels and aspect of executive functioning. I learned quite a lot about my own processes.

Siri? Is that you?

The content of this book is wonderful. I bought the hardcopy originally and wanted to listen to it as well to reinforce the reading. It’s a tough listen. The emotionless reading of this book makes it a slog and it need not be. I often listened to this and thought of the response Siri gives when you ask her to recite the words to Bohemian Rhapsody. The words are there, but they are mechanical.

Sometime the speaker was confusing

The overall book was pretty good but sometimes the speaker would switch from Peg to someone else. They would announce who it was ("This is Peg speaking") but they sounded like the same person.

Do not buy this if you are young adult

Any additional comments?

Title is misleading. I'm a young adult but this book is written for full-blown adults with spouses, children and established careers,
