Best information on Attention Deficit Disorder and Addiction  Jun 15, 2008
I've read this book twice. It is the most informative book on the subject, giving insight to anyone with A.D.D., especially if addictions are creating havoc in your life. A "must read" if you have A.D.D. and want to change the direction in which your life is heading. Bravo to Wendy for putting her information into a comprehensive book!
Great book for ADDers  Jan 19, 2003
This is very well written book that connects AD/HD and ADDiction. Not only does it explain both of them it offerrs suggestions on how to deal with AD/HD and ADDiction. The chapter "Feeling your Feelings" is very helpful.
Unlocks The Mystery & Provides Helpful Tools  Nov 30, 2001
If you suspect that you -or someone you'd like to help- suffers from ADD or an addiction problem, this straight-forward guide will unravel the mystery and then show you practical ways to greatly improve life. The author -a highly respected practitioner in California - writes in a no-nonsense style that makes you feel that you are learning from the best. She clearly knows the subject so well that she can distill material into reader-friendly nuggets of useful bullet points, checklists, tools, and quick assessments. Read this book and you'll be better able to help yourself or someone else.
concise, complete explanation of ADD and addiction link  Dec 20, 1999
Wendy has written a clear explanation of what ADD is and how it impacts a person's life. She explains how many people with ADD also have problems with a variety of addictions, and what they can do about it. Wendy has personal insight into both problem areas, as well as extensive professional training, so her writing on these topics has both depth and breadth. The book is written for the lay person, is not over-whelming, and is clear and concise. Anyone who thinks they have both ADD and addictions would greatly benefit from reading this book.
Important Book for all People with ADD!  Nov 8, 1999
The Link Between ADD and Addiction is a one of a kind book and should be at the top of the list for all people with Attention Deficit Disorder whether or not they believe they have addictions. Its important information helps the ADD adult or parent of ADD children understand how attention deficit disorder may be affecting their lives. It is well written, in a friendly, easy to read style.

Thanks Wendy Richardson for writing it!
