Review: ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life

I loved this book. It lives up to its subtitle: “Strategies that work from a professional organizer and a renowned ADD clinician.” Authors Judith Kolberg and Kathleen Nadeau have written an easy-to-read, practical book to help people recognize areas of weakness. They provide excellent strategies that are reasonable to implement.

There are seven sections to the book, including “Getting Started,” “Taking Charge of ADD,” “Thing Organizing,” Time Organizing,” “Paper Organizing,” Conclusion,” and “Resources.” They divide the material into 20 short chapters.

I particularly liked the point-form boxes in each chapter, called “Is this your story?,” which help identify problem areas. I quickly diagnosed my Fear of Filing. I also recognized Packrat Syndrome, Overcoming Overcommitment, and OosOom (Out of Sight, Out of Mind).

If you want to read someone else’s take on the book, here is another review. To “look inside the book,” go to Amazon and flip through some pages. The book is available from Edmonton Public Library (616.8589 KOL).
