Delivered from Distraction. It’s a more up-to-date follow up to Driven to Distraction and does a really good job of describing how the ADHD mind works. I was diagnosed at 25, after a turbulent academic career during which everyone was exasperated that I couldn’t/wouldn’t “just try harder”. I ended up giving my copy to my parents to read, so they could understand what’s been going on in my head for all this time. They had a very incomplete and backwards perception of what ADHD was (a big reason why I was never tested for it as a kid/teenager), so this book helped them a lot, and helped me a lot as well.
