FAST MINDS: How To Thrive If You Have ADHD (Or Think You Might) is a self-help guide published by Berkeley/Penguin.
This book is designed for people who struggle with ADHD traits or that want to tame scattered, disorganized, overwhelmed lives. Dr. Surman, Dr. Tim Bilkey and science writer Karen Weintraub co-authored the book, and Howie Mandel contributed the Foreward. Drawing on the latest research and what they have learned from thousands of patients, they describe principles for managing scattered, overwhelmed, disorganized, and disengaged lives. The book offers the reader a chance to practice cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and personal accountability strategies, developed from clinical research and the success of their patients.
"FAST MINDS delivers! A concise, practical, easy-to-read, yet sophisticated guide
to what will help you most if you have ADHD or ADHD traits. This book has the virtues of brevity and simplicity without losing the authority and power its roots in evidence and research provide.
A superb book."
