Like many women with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), journalist and popular blogger Zoë Kessler was diagnosed 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 describes how her impulsive behavior has affected her love life; how being disorganized 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 your energy, become more organized, and boost your self-esteem while tapping into creativity and humor. Kessler’s story illustrates how being diagnosed 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 diagnosis of ADHD, or just like a good story, ADHD According to Zoë will inspire you and encourage you to embrace your quirks.

In der Schule fallen diese verträumten Mädchen nicht weiter auf. Sie stören, ganz anders als ihre männlichen Leidensgenossen, den Unterricht kaum. Sie können sich schlecht konzentrieren, lassen ihre Gedanken schweifen, und ihre Leistungen sind schwach. Die Misserfolge häufen sich, ihr "Aufbruch ins Leben" findet unter erschwerten Umständen statt. Sie beginnen immer wieder neue Ausbildungen und schließen keine ab. Als erwachsene Frauen wirken sie chaotisch und leiden unter starken Stimmungsschwankungen. Andererseits verfügen sie oft über spezielle Begabungen, vor allem im künstlerisch-gestalterischen Bereich, und stecken voller prächtiger Ideen. Sie leiden an einer Aufmerksamkeitsdefizit-/Hyperaktivitätsstörung (ADHS), die je nach individueller Ausprägung Krankheitswert erlangen kann. Je früher die richtige Diagnose gestellt wird, desto größer ist die Chance, dass die Betroffenen ihr hohes Potenzial doch noch auszuschöpfen lernen und zu einem erfüllten Leben finden. Im Zentrum dieses Buches stehen die Schicksale von 16 Frauen, deren Geschichten erzählt und kommentiert werden. Wie in "ADS bei Erwachsenen" und "Wir fühlen uns anders" - den früher erschienenen erfolgreichen Büchern der Autorin - ergibt sich das Bild zahlreicher Tragödien, die bereits im ersten Akt vermeidbar gewesen wären - und selbst im fünften immer noch sind.
