Books for ADHD Women

Q: Can you recommend a book for a middle aged woman?  ADD has been affecting my career and home for decades.

When it comes to women I always recommend two books to start with. I will include amazon links for your convenience.

First, Terry Matlen’s timeless contribution – The Queen of Distraction

And also Sari Solden’s first book (she has another coming out in the summer) – Women with Attention Deficit Disorder

I think you will find in reading both of these books that you are not alone.

We have different backgrounds and individual challenges but women with ADHD have a special connection.

Good luck. And keep in touch!
