  1. Katie

    Seriously the best. It was recommended to me by a client and I can’t say enough good things about it!

  2. Tamar

    The only ADHD tool I’ve bought that’s actually worked. I was so excited when it arrived I read most of the book before even trying any of the strategies and a part of me was scared I’d do the same thing I always do and never get my act together and act on any of it.
    However something about the relaxed tone and having Dani remind me it’s OK if I lose the antiplanner under a pile of stuff for months and then come back to it or not has taken the pressure off and kept me going.

    In addition I love how it’s sectioned out by the emotion that’s blocking me so now when I’m stuck on the couch avoiding life I have a tool I can pick up that helps me work out what I’m feeling and gives me a few things to try to break through that wall.
    My place has never been this clean and it’s all thanks to the anti planner.
    I feel like I’m finally learning to adult and now when I don’t have the energy for life I give myslef a break and then pick something new from the antiplanner to try it’s really helped me build my self esteem and shown me a way out of the dark periods that used to take up so much of my energy and time.
    Favorite activity for the dark days is the 5 minute tidy up I’m always amazed how much better I feel after just 5 minutes of improving my surroundings.

    Thank you Dani for all the hard work you put into this you’ve changed my life.

    I got this planner in the very first run but in true ADHD fashion never got around to reviewing it.

    This is the best tool I keep going back to. It lives on my desk at work and any time I’m feeling stuck or overwhelmed it’s so easy to reach for it. Dani’s tone and realistic approach is so so so helpful. I recommend this book to everyone I know, adhd or not.

  4. TC

    it’s so much fun…I still read more than I’ve done/used in the book….but it’s made to play with! it’s one of the few books I have that don’t demand to be read, just flip to what you need help with and then read like 1 page and many are basically games to make getting shit done more fun/less stressfully overwhelmingly hard!
    thanks for creating such a solid tool.
    I’ve not even lost it yet,it’s big enough to not loose.

  5. Ellie

    Seriously, seriously good! It’s the whole family’s go to book. I showed it to my mother who said “at my age (89) I’ve figured these things out, but what I wouldn’t have given to have had this book years ago. Would have saved me a whole heap of trouble. It’s a godsend”. The usual advice (ie planners) apply to the usual people. The rest of us are left to try and work it out on our own. Thank you Dani – worth every penny as it’s a book for life 🙏
