About this product
- DescriptionLike many woman with attention/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), journalist and popular blogger Zoe Kessler was diagsed late in life - well into adulthood, in fact. But instead of seeing this label as a burden to bear, Kessler decided to use it to gain a better understanding of herself, and to connect with others through her writing. In this unique and engaging memoir, Kessler shares her own stories of living with ADHD in a way that is relatable, but never predictable. Inside, she desribes how her impulsive behavior has effected her love life; how being disorganised once stood in the way of landing a job; and how inattentiveness has caused certain challenges in her relationships. Kessler also offers key coping skills based on her experience; skills that you can use to focus you energy, become more organised, and boost your self-esteem while tapping into creativity and humour. Kessler's story illustrates how being diagsed with ADHD late into adulthood can be bewildering, but it also shows what a great opportunity it can be to take stock of your life and make real, lasting changes. Whether you share her diagsis of ADHD, or just like a good story, ADHD according to Zoe will inspire you and encourage you to embrace your quirks.
