UPDATE: Pre-Review of "The Queen of Distraction: How Women with ADHD Can Conquer Chaos, Find Focus, and Get More Done"

Scroll to bottom for update if you've already read this post!

So as I was doing my morning walk today I realized I was all done listening to "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" by Marie Kondo on Audible and was ready for something new. It's hard for me to find time to sit down and read a book, plus I get distracted easily and just can't focus on the words anymore. Audiobooks while I walk are the perfect solution for me ... exercise and knowledge in one = perfection!

When I was at the library recently I saw on a shelf nearby someone had put this book on hold:

I'm like, why are they writing a book about ME????

I put it on hold at the library for the print copy but realized that is laughable since I can't focus on reading it so I'm using my own affiliate link to get it on audiobook!

I listened to a sample on Audible and was nodding my head like an idiot while I was walking. Stacks of papers? Yes. No clue how to prioritize the sorting of them? That's me. I'm sure that explains a lot of people who don't necessarily have ADHD but the way I procrastinate and can't stick with boring things and constantly run after new, shiny things drives me nuts about myself! And when I get focused on something I enjoy, time passes so quickly and then I'm late for things ... often rushing the kids around to get out the door late for something because *I* can't get my crap together.

This is a 6-hour, 18-minute audiobook so give me until November 15 to post my review, please! I can only fit in about 30 minutes of walking a day and only then if the weather is 48 degrees or above!

Women and me like me who might have adult ADHD ... there might be help for us. Also, I see these traits in one of my daughters, so it would be AWESOME to be able to help her while she's not even 8 years old yet!

If you want to buy the book now because I have you all excited, please use my affiliate link above! If you want to wait for the review, that's also cool! Oh, and it will try to make you get the paperback by default. I just clicked on the item name from my shopping cart and went back to the options and clicked Audible and used my credit :-)

Happy November!

**Update September 10, 2017: I never finished this book, which is typical of women with ADD. I have to laugh!
