Reviewed in the United States on November 3, 2018
The first two chapters are a shameless promotion for the author regarding why the reader should hire the author to help them. If you’re thinking of the possibility that you might have ADHD you can avoid the book and instead google a checklist that will list symptoms. The third chapter is titled “Self-Coaching,” so I was truly thinking that this chapter would offer insights on how one could self-coach around managing one’s day or organizing projects if you think you have ADHD symptoms. Oddly, in this chapter the author discusses how she worked with her own clients and then offers the comment that “since other people’s routines can be useless for you, you need to create your own strategy.” Yet, the author does not even in the Self-Coaching chapter explore how you can create your own strategy. This book I can imagine is brilliant in that I can see how readers would be lead after reading this book that they do indeed need to hire the author to be their personal coach. If you’re looking for an explanation of how you need to hire an ADHD coach, this is the book for you. If you’re looking for insight on how to better manage your life if you think you have ADHD symptoms, you’ll not find that in this book.
PS I also like the author have an Ivy League degree and I found it somewhat shameless the number of times she mentions she has a Harvard degree. It has successfully encouraged me to not mention my own Ivy degree as I try to sell my own services - it’s a bit tasteless.
