WOW

i was told by my therapist to read this book as she believes I am ADHD. In the same breath she also explained that because of that i won't be ABLE to read it. So, i downloaded it and listened while I'm driving. i couldn't even sit still to listen to it at home. Too distracted :( I feel like someone understands me and how my mind works now. Huge relief, but i know the road to wellness is going to be long. Thankfully, I'm on the right path... i hope

Extremely Informative

Dr Mate help me understand that there is a marked difference between ADD and ADHD. I had previously thought that they were one and the same. However, I now realize that hyperactivity is not always concurrent with Attention Deficit. Through Dr Mate's book I realize that someone who is introverted and quiet can still have a racing mind without having a frantic body.

Must read for ADD adults, parents, teachers, ....

This book has been extremely helpful in my own understanding of my own adult diagnosis of ADHD at the age of 37 as well as providing an increased understanding of my step daughter's recent diagnosis of ADHD. With greater understanding of my own behaviours and through processes, and strategies to help work through them to grow my extremely sensitive and underdeveloped emotions, I can also begin to allow myself greater self compassion. Like it or not, my partner too has learned and benefited from this book in her own self awareness, and gaining strategies on how to manage and help improve our daughter's emotional developement concurrent with medications that as a 12yr old, she has recognized the benefits her medication has brought, particularly in school performance, as well as socially and giving her the energy and confidence to join her school soccer and volleyball teams!

Life changing!!!!

Didn't know that my mother's rageuos beatings caused me this much damage. But why would i suspect that?, such beatings are the gold standard of parenting in Africa. Its sad i discovered this now, imagine if i dicovered this in my earlier years, instead of in my final year of university, at the same time i feel lucky to have discovered this at 21. I have seen first hand how bad adhd can be if it goes untreated. My father was a great lawyer at his peak, he is an absolute mess right now because of this. Lost job, marriage, back with his mother, multiple kids, crippling debts, lost car to pawnshop after years of paying for it. I will try to recommend this book for him and i hope my future wont be the same. Time to start the process of healing.

Excellent book. Really gets you to understand how ADD originates, works and feels

This book has helped me understand how ADD affects my life, my husband’s and my 11 year old daughter. I feel now that I can be much more effective when dealing with everyday issues in relation with my family and with myself. Also to be able to be self compassionate and be compassionate with them rather than judgemental.

Excellent book

Excellent, well-written book that covers a lot of ground, including a role of attachment and presents ADD a lot as an attachment disorder, which I find helpful, but others may argue for distinguishing them, which, in fact is often hard to do and this book does a good job at integrating rather then distinguishing the two disorders. On the whole this is a well-balanced book when it comes to bio-psycho-social-spiritual formulation. I truly enjoyed Daniel Mate’s voice and narration, one of the best l have heard on Audible books. Unfortunately, some of the Audible books are narrated by jarring, unpleasant voices that my ADD brain absolutely cannot stand even when I'm genuinely interested in the book itself. Daniel’s voice did a true service to this beautifully written book.

half the book not particulary about ADD

but still worthwhile. it is the usual sruff expected from gabor mate: deep insight into the human psych and modern culture.it is the performence of his son daniel as a book recorder.

How and why?

Very good examples to help you understand what's really happening in your brain, and why it it is happening. More interesting than any ADD book I've read before.

Good work. Worth a read.

Well structured. Well written. Well performed. A must read for those of you wondering about your wandering mind. Also a good book to recognize any signs in children and for acting.
