    I’m neurospicy in another way, having depression. This little gem makes my life brighter and easier to cope when energy levels are low or when I lose confidence and seek refuge in spiralling anxiety.
    Additional points for:
    I’m a teacher as well, and have a plethora of kids with different issues influencing their executive functions. I can bring this up, and inspire them to find new methods in staying motivated and on track with their goals, both school-connected and not.

    Dani, you are a blessing for this!

    It is hard for me to write a review right now so please don’t take the review itself not being great as a reflection on the book which is amazing!

    This is the least regretted purchase I have made in a long time, I am so glad I got it! I have only recently had my diagnosis despite suffering for decades and this book is so comforting and helpful. It is super easy to pick up and read, the layout is so thoughtful and the illustrations funny and insightful.

    To be honest it was a lot of money for me (though understandable given the quality, size and work needed o produce it) but it looked so good I went for it anyway, and I am really glad I did.

    It had already helped me in really practical and non-judgemental ways. I really can’t recommend this enough.

    I only actually thought to write a review after the email explaining the necessity of a price rise and one thing I want to say is, I would still buy and not regret this book if I had paid the new the higher price,
    I actually can’t think of another book that has actually made so much difference to me in a practical sense.

    I really hope that the price doesn’t put people off who can afford it, and I hope it getting wider distribution helps more people who need it to find it.

    I can’t remember how I even came across the book (maybe the youtube channel “how to Adhd”?) but I am so glad it exists!

    I recommend The Anti-Planner to every client I have with executive function challenges and it is a standing recommendation in my assessment reports. I have both the regular and PG versions – the books themselves are beautiful, and the content is brilliant. Worth every penny and, Dani, please don’t worry about the price increase! This is a needed resource – pricing it to be sustainable is important. Also, let us know your favorite pens! You make mention of them and as a pen connoisseur I’m so eager to know which you like!

    I have ADHD & love this book. Even when none of the scenarios “fit” exactly, I can use the exercises to inspire me & get me out of the unproductive hole I’m in at the time. It’s all about getting out of my own head, finding a place to start, rethinking things, etc., and having a guide from someone who gets it is super helpful! So much more useful than trying to shame myself into productivity, which is what I did for most of my life. It is spendy as far as books go, but definitely worth the price. If you can afford it & are on the fence, I highly recommend going for it. If you have ADHD you’re probably spending far more money on much less useful things anyway (:

    To be honest, I think this planner is just too amazing to be so cheap 😱 Dani needs to sell it for more!
    It is just colourful, beautiful, personal, relatable and you get so many amazing tools. It’s evident this was made by someone with lots of skills and love. Everytime I look at it it makes me happy. I didnt even mind that she had to raise the price, it is just so worth it and I will buy it again again and again. Proud to be able to support such an awesome creator ❤️ You make my day, every day. Love from Berlin!
