Book Review: “You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?!

Recently I re-read the book “You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?! by Kate Kelly and Peggy Ramundo. This was the first book about ADHD that I read. As I was re-reading this book recently, I thought that I would include some book reviews. Books on ADHD.

I first read this book right around the time that I started this blog. And recently I re-read this book.

The authors, Kate Kelly and Peggy Ramundo, both have ADHD, and first wrote the first edition of the book in the 90’s, when knowledge of this disorder was still somewhat in its infancy. The authors later revised the book and a second edition was published.

This book has so much useful information for those who have ADHD. It covers what ADHD is, how it can affect different aspects of our lives, and even gives useful tips on how we can make changes in our life and make things a little easier. It also gives examples of how ADHD can be presented and show itself in different individuals.

Both authors have ADHD themselves, have kids with it, and also work with individuals who have the disorder as well. These women have dealt with it for a long time, and definitely know what they’re talking about.

I have really enjoyed reading this book. As someone with ADHD, the authors offer a lot of insight about ADHD, what it is, and tools that can be beneficial for us.

For those who don’t have ADHD, and may want to learn more about this neurotypical disorder, this would be a good book to read. It can definitely help you understand. This may be a good book for information as well as perspective, as it is written by two women who have the condition and who work with individuals with ADHD.

Honestly, I would definitely recommend this book. Whether you have it and have known for a long time, or you’re newly diagnosed, or don’t have it at all and want to learn more, this may be a good place to start.
