“This book is a gem. Crosby and Lippert take this complex and sometimes confusing experience of living with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and make it imminently understandable. And then they provide a plethora of interesting and doable ideas, as well as practical strategies for you to live the life you want. NOW.”

Transforming ADHD strikes that right balance of information that comes both from the ‘head and the heart.’ Crosby and Lippert provide practical strategies to help adults function better with ADHD that not only are solidly based in the research literature, but also come from a wealth of both clinical and personal experience. ADHD affects adults in so many different ways. The authors understand the impact ADHD has on individuals’ lives, and the book provides tips that adults can apply in their work and family life along with lots of supportive advice. They really get what it’s like to live with ADHD.”

—Bradley Steinfeld, PhD, assistant director at Group Health Cooperative Behavioral Health Services
