A Life Coach in Book Form

Here is a life coach in book form for the 9 million adults in the US with ADHD to help them overcome the inattention, disorganization, and impulsivity that gets in the way of their getting things done.

“This is a book about possibility,” Nancy Ratey, one of the leading ADHD coaches in the United States, writes in the introduction to The Disorganized Mind (St. Martin’s Press, April 2008, 0-312-35533-5, $24.95, 320 pages, hardcover) details her personal struggles with ADHD and is a rallying cry to other adults struggling with ADHD to leave behind the cycle of pain and discouragement and take control of their lives.

What follows is both a practical guide to taking control of the symptoms with which individuals with ADHD struggle, and an inspirational summons to believe with the author that living a rich and balanced life — “a life you love” — is possible.
