There are a lot of books about ADHD for adults, and many are overflowing with great advice. Many are written by folks who have ADHD, and are vulnerable to a particular ADHD weakness--they try to be encyclopedic. And for the adult with ADHD that poses another very particular problem: When encountering a thousand things that a person with ADHD can do to simplify their life, things become anything but simple.

If I were going to write a three paragraph book for adults about how to manage ADHD, it would read something like this. Don't try to do everything that is a good idea. "Doing it all" is the enemy of "getting something done." Yes, each idea could prove helpful. But trying to DO all of those ideas will probably be frustrating and disappointing. Choose a few, or even just one. And then give yourself the very encouraging reward of mastering it. Not only do you get the benefit of accomplishing the task, but you get the very valuable feedback that you can indeed take on a task and succeed, without getting distracted, discouraged, or derailed.

Knowing some good things to do is very valuable. Knowing that you can do some good things is priceless. Focus and motivation are going to be your challenge, and doing a little bit very well will help you stay motivated.

So, I recommend Holt's ADD Simplified. It is not a compendium of all the things that you could do. It's a straightforward book with some of the prize-winning strategies that you can try. And you shouldn't try them all, at least not at the beginning. Just pick one, or maybe a couple, and see if you can see the improvement as you apply your energy to doing it thoroughly.

You've already succeeded in reading my three paragraph book. Now get this one.

I came across this book by accident, but it's no accident that it helped organize my life better than before. Even for a non-ADD'er, but very distracted person as I am, this book gives a bundle of hands on suggestions and tips that simplified my life and my surroundings. True, the tips and tricks are sometimes right in front of you, but the author finds a very simple and clear way to point them out. The tips are often so simple that you never even thought about them yourself. For instance I'm a mess in keeping track of my keys. I used to mislay them on a very regular basis. Since I read the book I only forgot them once, and trued be told it wasn't even my fault. Just keep them in a designated place and you're safe. It's just one of the zillions of tips that you can get out of this small book. It sounds stupid, but by pointing the things out so clear and in your face it's a pleasure to read and explore and learn how you can simplify your life and enjoy it more. Thank you Mr Parker Holt.

Some good tips in here. Some I already knew and others that will make my life just a bit easier with ADHD.

I enjoyed the book, but it's pretty thin on content, I read it in about 1.5 hours. Also, most of the tips are things you could think of yourself. If you are a TOTAL mess, this is a good book for you. I needed more fine tuning, which wasn't available here, but it's still a fine collection of strategies.

Unless you have are completely new to ADD and the daily struggles, you will not find this book helpful. Very basic information, very disappointed.
Holt provides field-tested techniques for handling aspects of daily living that can, quite frankly, drive you nuts. He offers suggestions on such tasks as organizing documents, to-do lists, electronics accessories, handling money, avoiding morning stress, and more. He discusses the need to establish a bedtime ritual, the (negative) effects of social networks and, my favorite, why you should take a nap each day.

Holt's book is written in a deceptively simple ADHD style: the suggestions are easy to understand (no need for lengthy rumination) and to the point. At times you think he's sitting next to you, offering suggestions. In the chapter on how to avoid morning stress he writes "I'm not trying to sound like a strict stepmother, but TV in the morning does not help. Watching TV while you're having breakfast is not only unhealthy, it also takes more time and does not promote family bonding. Just leave the TV off; you'll catch the news later." For the paperwork-challenged (the very definition of ADHD!), he suggests using colored folders based on a color scheme that assigns a meaning to each color. But Holt warns that using more than five different colors increases the likelihood that you'll forget the meaning of each color. The color coding doesn't have to end with the use of file folders. Holt has an open-shelved filing cabinet (available at your friendly Ikea store) for which he purchased colored fabric boxes (also from Ikea) for the open shelves. Particular items are "assigned" to particular colors/boxes. Color coding also works in the virtual world. Software applications, such as Microsoft Outlook and Google Mail (Gmail), allow you to color code your emails so that, for example, priority emails may have their subject line in red.

Like all books that offer suggestions for the ADHDer, some suggestions may not be applicable to your lifestyle ("Do I really need a Leatherman tool?") and some you may not agree with at all ("I won't replace my physical books with e-book versions...I like taking a pen and scribbling in the margins of a book"). Still, there are so many good ideas on reducing clutter, creating organization, using various types of to-do lists and more, that you're bound to find a dozen or more suggestions that will fit your lifestyle and that you'll want to incorporate into your daily life to minimize the effects of your own ADHD.
