Book Review: Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention by Katherine Ellison

Book Review: Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention by Katherine Ellison

  I was extremely excited to read Buzz to say the least. I had heard of the book and had considered ordering it several times, but as you may know I have ADHD. Sometimes I forget to order stuff that I want, no matter how much I want it!

Many people consider the first rule of ADHD to be very important in order to maintain privacy, and to avoid misjudgment. Did you [...]
