Descripción del producto


"This wonderful book presents information and sharp clinical insights accrued over decades of work by a preeminent leader in the field. Dr. Barkley clearly and thoughtfully discusses the causes of adult ADHD and how to get diagnosed and treated. A 'must read' for anyone interested in learning more about adult ADHD."--Lenard Adler, MD, author of Scattered Minds; Department of Psychiatry, New York University School of Medicine
"Dr. Barkley’s advice to individuals who have ADHD (or think they might) represents a remarkable blend of science and practicality. This book offers a lifeline to adults with ADHD and their families."--Michael Gordon, PhD, Director, ADHD Program, Department of Psychiatry, State University of New York Upstate Medical University
"Consider this book the Rosetta Stone of adult ADHD. No one but Dr. Barkley could translate the sophisticated grasp of ADHD for which he is well known into lay terms and solid strategies. Comprehensive, immensely practical, highly readable, and wholly compassionate, Taking Charge of Adult ADHD is the definitive guide for adults with ADHD and the people who care about them."--Gina Pera, author of Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.?
"This book will surely become a classic. If you are an adult with ADHD, Dr. Barkley can help you make sense of your lifelong struggles and develop a clear roadmap for overcoming them. Stories and examples from others facing the same challenges bring Dr. Barkley's ideas to life. I will certainly recommend this easy-to-read yet scientifically based book to everyone who comes through our adult ADHD clinic."--J. Russell Ramsay, PhD, Codirector, Adult ADHD Treatment and Research Program, University of Pennsylvania

Este libro clarifica muy bien todos los síntomas y las técnicas para mitigar la TDA. Muchos ejemplos de gente que sufre este trastorno. Solo comentar que el autor ha hecho varios estudios para laboratorios farmacéuticos y aunque sí recomienda la medicación de forma profusa, el libro es bastante útil porque explica el problema en su conjunto.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas I have misgivings for Inattentive sufferers and/or women 23 de octubre de 2016
Por Liz - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
As a young adult woman recently diagnosed with ADHD, I bought several books to help me try and understand my life in this new frame. This was the first book I started reading. My spirits fell, however, as I realized through the first few chapters that Dr. Barkley would probably tell me I don't have ADHD.

I was a bright child and didn't start doing poorly in school until high school. I don't drive aggressively. I am capable of planning, it just takes me longer than most and sometimes the system breaks down. I don't get "bored" doing repetitive tasks (in fact I tend to enjoy them because it means I can daydream). According to Dr. Barkley, this means it is less likely that I have adult ADHD.

In fact, at the little mention Dr. Barkley makes of primarily inattentive ADHD, he actually spends more time explaining his newly ideated disorder "sluggish cognitive tempo," which shares a lot of characteristics with ADHD-PI but seems to involve a more hypoactive personality than a "flighty" one. From other sources, there doesn't seem to be a lot of evidence that this is actually a separate disorder. Above all, he can offer no advice about how to deal with this nor the case of when you're in a gray area between ADHD and not-ADHD -- a sidebar implies that if you don't fit his criteria perfectly, you must be ascribing your normal failure to meet very high standards to a mental disorder you do not have.

However, other sources indicate that ADHD of a significant impairment level in women can look different from that of men -- and they tend to have ADHD-PI -- and Dr. Barkley does not ever mention this, as far as I can tell. Dr. Barkley says that there is no evidence hormones outside of menopause (such as during menstruation) can affect ADHD symptoms, and leaves it at that, but many women have reported noticing a difference during their periods of the efficacy of their ADHD drugs, and scientists are currently researching this question. One of Dr. Barkely's checklists indicates you should have seen significant impairment by middle school, but The National Center for Girls and Women with ADHD has indicated that many women don't experience a significant problem until as late as college.

Above all I resent his statement that "Saying that a person functioning as well as or even better than the average or typical person can still be considered impaired makes a mockery of the concept of 'disorder' and does a disservice to those struggling with really not being able to function as well as the norm." There is some truth in this statement, but an attitude like this would ignore the suffering of many women, where research has shown that many external observers would rate those women as not having a problem, when they do and ADHD treatment makes their lives easier and often also makes secondary depression and anxiety go away. To quote one review of scientific studies, "Knowledgeable informants (eg, families, teachers, colleagues) may be more likely to overlook ADHD symptoms in women and girls and are therefore less likely to refer them for diagnosis or treatment. "

Nothing I can find in this book seems to mention how much of the research he relies on was done on adult women. I'm going to look into this further as well as report back later on whether I find his suggested coping mechanisms helpful, still. In the meantime I hope to find a different resource that will reflect my own experience better.

In short, this book may help you -- but don't be discouraged if you don't match it perfectly. I didn't let myself get discouraged, and now I have a diagnosis and my life has improved considerably with treatment.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A 'How to" manual for the ADD adult 22 de febrero de 2012
Por Thomas D. Coe - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
As a psychologist who specializes in ADD in all age groups and as a person with ADD myself, I recommend this book to every new adult ADD patient that I see. Soon after it came out, a patient of mine said that he'd read plenty of books that described what ADD is, but this was the first one that really told him what he could and should do about it. I tell patients that medication is only a part of the answer, the rest is changing behaviors that can increase or decrease your chances of success and that this book will help them to do that with some very practical and down to earth strategies. Because of this I try to keep copies of it in my office to sell them at cost, so they'll have it when they leave the appointment. In the last two weeks I have recommended it to 5 or 6 undergrad and law school students.

I also point out to them Dr. Barkley's exceptional standards for his own research and for the evaluation of the research of others. His care in presenting results is refreshingly old fashioned, almost quaint in this age of overblown self promotion, such as when he shared his adult ADHD criteria that were eventually published in his master work, "ADHD in Adults: what the science says"[2010], at a Cape Cod workshop in 2006. The results were preliminary at the time and he cautioned us that they had only been validated on a population of males from western Mass., or something like that. We all had to chuckle a bit and at the same time time appreciate how rare and refreshing it was to see such conscientiousness in a researcher; first and foremost Russ Barkley is a scientist and the reader can be confident that this book is based on real research, not just someone's opinions.

Lastly, I like the layout of the book. It follows a format that's similar to the 'for dummies' series in that it is well organized with a detailed table of contents and index, as well as visual highlights such as boxes of bullet points, highlighted tips, etc. I tell my patients that it's very 'ADD-friendly' - that they don't have to read it front to back in a linear fashion, but that they can skip around and still get a ton of useful information from it.

I'm not going to say how great this book is or how intelligent the author is, instead, I'm gonna tell you to view this author's lecture on YouTube about ADHD to decide for yourself. The lecture will convince you that this guy is an expert. I thought I knew everything about ADHD before viewing his lecture. Once you watch his video you will definitely come back here and buy this book. Go to YouTube and type: "Executive Functioning - Part 2".

In grad school, I read and cited a lot of Russell Barkley's work. I have always had trouble understanding executive function. Partly because I never took the time to learn and partly because it is very hard to understand. Not here! I understood exactly what he was talking about. I have even been able to use the information when working with people with autism. The book notes if there is research behind the points. If there is not specific research, he points to the best non research resources. With all the research done on ADHD, I was surprised how much we have not studied (e.g. ADHD and relationships). I would highly recommend this book!

Por Will - Publicado en

Dr. Barkley is widely recognized as the leading authority on ADHD for good reason: his published work is clear, comprehensive, and research-based. While other authors write compellingly, anecdote, rather than scientific evidence, informs a surprisingly large portion of the available literature.

This book is a welcome alternative. It's the clearest, pithiest introduction to ADHD that I've read. It tells few stories and doesn't venture deeply into symptoms and comorbidities. Instead, it outlines the condition and options for treatment. Its clear presentation of ADHD's neurobiological core should interest even well-read adults with ADHD unfamiliar with Barkley's work.
