Explanation of the Book:

Almost all the organizing books on the market today target the "left-brainer" - people who are generally disciplined, neat, and analytical.

In this book, Lee Silber turns traditional organizing advice on its head and offers unique solutions that complement the unorthodox lifestyle of the creative "right-brainer." For example: * Discover how right-brainers can be organized in a left-brain world * Overcome obstacles that stand in the way of being more organized * Pile, don't file - put paper in its place the right-brained way * Learn how being a "pack rat" can be a good thing This creative new approach to getting it together is perfect for those who can't relate to boring traditional organizing techniques!

The authors, two professionals who have “been there and done that” with their own children with ADHD, illustrate their strategies and content by highlighting successful people with ADHD who excelled in various areas and share some of their success secrets to raising a successful child with ADHD.
