Books I have found helpful for ADHD research
Taking Charge of Adult ADHD, Second Edition: Proven Strategies to Succeed at Work, at Home, and in Relationships
Russell A. Barkley with Christine M. Benton
Possibly available in audio, I found this a little annoying and patronising; but he is supposed to be the expert, it is worth reading - YMMV.
Scattered Minds: The Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder
Gabor Maté with Daniel Maté (Narrator)
Brilliant in my opinion.
The ADHD Effect on Marriage: Understand and Rebuild Your Relationship in Six Steps
Melissa Orlov with Laura Jennings (Narrator)
Little meh, not sure I like the tone of this one, but its worth reading - I think it shows how gender bias can affect diagnosis and how it is dealt with, ie I think the author speaks a lot of crud, some -small- nuggets of useful info.
Divergent Mind: Thriving in a World That Wasn't Designed for You
This is more about the spectrum, I think it was helpful as an overview.
Hypermobility on the Yoga Mat: A Guide to Hypermobility-Aware Yoga Teaching and Practice
Probably not on audio, but the first sections highlights how many co-morbidities there are and worth investigating things outside of physiology.
Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body
Richard J. Davidson, Daniel Goleman
Meditation and the brain, a solid look at brainwave patterns, PTSD - fascinating.
The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
Bessel van der Kolk
Seemingly a classic.
When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress
Another brilliant book from Gabor Maté.
Sleepyhead: Narcolepsy, Neuroscience and the Search for a Good Night
Neuroscience & narcolepsy and other sleep disorders - a very good look at what sleep is for the brain.
The Spark in the Machine: How the Science of Acupuncture Explains the Mysteries of Western Medicine
Acupuncture, embryonic development, western medicine, this is fascinating for me.
Fail, Fail Again, Fail Better: Wise Advice for Leaning into the Unknown
Pema Chödrön, Seth Godin
Pema has great insight: “Pema Chödrön offers us her heartfelt advice on how to face the unknown—in ourselves and in the world—and how our missteps can open our eyes to see new possibilities and purpose.”
The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
Don Miguel Ruiz with ภัทริณี เจริญจินดา (Translator)
A quick read, steeped in fundamental understandings.
An inspiring read, helpful for sidestepping the heavy guilt / pressure we put on ourselves whilst empowering - a difficult balances, but she pulls it off.
Start Where You Are: A Guide to Compassionate Living
“Start Where You Are is an indispensable handbook for cultivating fearlessness and awakening a compassionate”
Accessing the Healing Power of the Vagus Nerve: Self-Help Exercises for Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, and Autism
A bit dense, I don think this is an easy read, not because of the subject matter - the author seems to have not complied this info in an easily accessible way (for me).
