‘Women with Attention Deficit Disorder: Embrace Your Differences And Transform Your Life’ by author Sari Solden, originally published in 1995, revised and expanded in 2005 and now released in all ebook formats, has sold over 150,000 books world wide, and was the first book to examine in depth the special challenges faced by women with AD/HD, such as the shame of not fulfilling societal expectations.
In ‘Women with Attention Deficit Disorder’, Solden explains that AD/HD affects just as many women as men, and often results in depression, disorganization, anxiety, and underachievement. The book provides treatment and counseling options tied specifically to gender related challenges.
The book focuses on three major areas designed to help women take control of their lives and enjoy success on their own terms. These are entitled, “Restructuring one's life, Renegotiating Relationships, and Redefining one’s self-image.” The book is full of real life stories, and traces the changes in the lives of two main composite characters as they move from the confusion and hiding of pre-diagnosis all the way to learning to fully embrace who they are. Solden also includes her personal experiences with her own adult diagnosis of ADHD.
‘Women with Attention Deficit Disorder’ has been widely endorsed and recommended by leaders and pioneers in the field of adult ADHD. For example:
"Sari Solden has used her personal and professional experience to shine some light into the dark closet inhabited by far too many ADD women... She empowers ADD women by validating their experience as worthwhile human beings who struggle with serious organizational problems in many areas of their lives." (Kate Kelly and Peggy Ramundo, authors of ‘You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy’)
“What I love about Sari's approach is that it is personal, humble, funny, and real. She avoids the stilled prose one often reads in dry journals and instead provides warm and supple words that capture the spirit of ADD from a woman’s perspective and offer positive and practical approach to making life better… I love her humor, her sensitivity, and her warmth.” (Edward Hallowell, MD, co-author of 'Driven to Distraction')
