Though women and girls are just as likely as their male counterparts to have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD), studies show that they are still more likely to be un- and misdiagnosed -- and therefore less likely to receive adequate treatment. In her new book, 100 Questions & Answers About Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Women and Girls, Patricia Quinn, M.D., offers a female-friendly introduction to ADD/ADHD symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment. A mix of research and personal narratives, the book also offers practical tips on relationships and securing support from others.

Relationships can be tricky territory for ADD/ADHD adults, but one new handbook for couples supplies rich insight into what it takes to make an ADD/ADHD relationship succeed. ADDitude contributor Melissa Orlov’s new book, The ADHD Effect on Marriage, includes advice for partners with and without the condition about breaking destructive relationship patterns, improving communication, and reigniting romance in long-term relationships. Orlov’s husband of 20 years was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD five years ago, which gives her research and advice a uniquely personal touch.
