How Crusher Started (or, The Trouble with Books)


ADD Crusher™ really started the day I was diagnosed – which came well into adulthood – nearly 15 years ago. Leaving Dr. Ira Bergman’s office after being described as “a classic case”, I headed straight to the bookstore so I could dive into an understanding of and fixes for this thing called ADD.

ADHD Books Are Great – If You Love Reading

And I found loads of books – more than I had expected to find, in fact. And lots specific to ADULT attention deficit disorder. But one thing was common to almost all the books I leafed through: lots of pages, lots of text, zero pictures…zero user-friendliness, in my book, anyway (no pun intended).

Now, let’s not gloss over the fact that some of the greatest advances in society’s understanding and grappling with ADHD have come thanks to the many great books written to date: Driven to Distraction, Delivered from Distraction, You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?, and many others that have shined a light, opened a door and improved a part of life for so many of us.

The Future of ADHD Books

But here’s what Crusher’s gonna do one of these days – and pretty soon, if I have my way…We’re gonna bust out with an iPad app that brings all the elements of ADD Crusher™ together into one medium – Video, Audio Companion, Toolkit, mobile app, etc. In other words, we’re gonna make a “book” that is so alive, it’ll knock your hat off your head – and provide a very cool and effective tool for people who want to CRUSH.

Stay tuned.
