About My Book Notes

I have read over 500+ books since 1992. Unfortunately, my limited ADHD memory means I forget most of it within a week or two!

I did start to keep notes of interest on Word docs for later reference, and I am using these notes as the basis of what I present here.

When I’m reading and come across an inspiring idea or something that I haven’t heard before, or something I want to try, I save it.

That’s all my notes are. I’m not summarizing the book. I’m just saving useful ideas for myself for later recall and use.

I will be adding more book notes as quickly as I can on a variety of subjects from my ADHD perspective.

How do you use the book notes?” courtesy: www.dereksivers.com

  1. Save the ideas you find most interesting and worthy of further thought.
  2. Re-read those notes occasionally.
  3. Reflect on one. Write the idea at the top of a page, then write at least a page of your own thoughts about this idea.
  4. Read the book notes that seem to apply to your current situation and might offer a solution to the problem you are experiencing.

My notes don’t replace the book. If you look through a book’s notes, like the ideas and have the time, please read the whole book. It gives you more depth, context and meaning.

Adult ADD Solution: A Thirty Day Holistic Road Map to Overcoming Adult ADD/ADHD

My name is George Sachs. I'm a clinical psychologist and expert in adult ADD. I also have adult ADD, so much of what I teach comes from my own personal experience. I have experimented with many methods on the market with much trial and error. Lots of errors! I was never satisfied with the books I read on adult ADD, as the advice was hard to follow and was clearly not created by someone with ADD. The tools, tips, and techniques I developed for this audiobook have been field tested by me and my clients.
