Publisher's Summary

Do you rule the realm of disorganization, clutter, and chaos? Are you constantly battling to get things done? Are you ready to give up and toss your day planner into the dungeon (otherwise known as your closet)? If so, you might just be The Queen of Distraction. And whether or not you've been formally diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you probably already know that something's got to give.
The Queen of Distraction presents practical skills to help women with ADHD achieve focus and balance in all areas of life, whether it's at home, at work, or in relationships. Psychotherapist Terry Matlen delves into the feminine side of ADHD, discussing the elements of this condition that are particular to women, such as relationships, skin sensitivities, meal planning, parenting, and dealing with out-of-control hormones. In addition this audiobook offers helpful tips and strategies to get your symptoms under control and outlines a number of effective treatment options for you to pursue.

What a revelation!

A real eye-opener for women with ADHD and their loved ones. Lots of great, achievable strategies for coping in real-life situations. Some aspects were very USA-centric, but the broader ideas and advice still apply in the UK and elsewhere.

Get the book not the audio.

While the author offers a range of helpful tools, unless you take notes while listening it will be off little use. A PDF would have been useful with this book.
