Overview: The editors, a psychologist and a physician who specialize in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, have put together this companion to their earlier volume, "Understanding Girls with AD/HD." Because the disorder occurs more often in men, women with the disorder often are overlooked. This book aims to help women get a proper diagnosis and take charge of their health and work lives.

What Works: The book is divided into eight sections that examine medical aspects of the disorder, nonmedical treatments, where to get support and the various impacts that the disorder can have. It's especially good at helping women identify and manage the challenges they may face at work, at school, in relationships and in daily life. Readers may want to use this as a reference book, reading selected chapters. It's especially useful for those who suspect they have ADHD or are trying to understand someone who does.
