If there is someone in your life with ADHD, I recommend you buy two copies of “Forget Perfect: How to Succeed in Your Profession and Personal Life Even if You Have ADHD,” by Abigail Wurf.  Present one copy to that someone, then sit down and read the other copy yourself.  No matter how much you thought you knew, you will gain a whole new understanding of the challenges and appreciation of the accomplishments of someone dealing with this disorder.

Since both my husband and daughter have ADHD, I thought I understood it far better than your average person.   But what makes this book something different is that in addition to providing new insight and good advice, Abigail also shares her own personal stories in a disarmingly honest and unselfconscious way.  Her insider’s perspective on issues such as difficulties with being on time, getting started on projects, and social interactions, really deepened my understanding of the people I love and want to support, and helped lessen my personal frustration.

This book has also had an immense impact on me professionally.  As a career coach who specializes in helping people discover their natural gifts and talents, I often work with people with ADHD.  These people frequently find that their ADHD has tremendously impacted their self-image and what they think they are capable of.  “Forget Perfect” has given me a much greater understanding and as a coach, this knowledge has helped equip me with new strategies for increasing my clients’ success.

“Forget Perfect” is great advice.  Let’s just shoot for extraordinary.

Readers who will benefit from this book will experience immediate, welcomed relief with the title alone! Forget Perfect clearly suggests that the misconception many hold that “EVERYONE ELSE IS PERFECT” can be dispelled forever! Abigail Wurf has contributed a fresh “How to…” for living more effectively with ADHD, and includes graphic steps to achieve this goal, by showing the reader a side-by-side version of “Instead of this…..” “Try this….” It’s one thing to state that we all need to “communicate more clearly at work,” and quite another to outline concrete options that will drive home the point. Bravo to Ms. Wurf on this achievement!
