  1. Alexandra Chavarot

    This book has been (and still is) super helpful to me!
    – It’s beautiful and the pictures are fun, so it’s a pleasure to open it, which is a good motivation trick for my ADHD brain!
    – The best thing about the book is that it works as a toolbox you can pick from as needed. And the chapters really match the feelings we might have, so it’s easy to use, even when we’re inside the storm!
    – Navigating through the book is easy and intuitive ;
    – There are a lot of different tools, so you can find what really works for you ;
    – And it’s FUN!
    Thank you Dani for all this work!!!

    I love it. My brain sometimes decides it needs unique motivation and the anti-planner provides it effectively. Highly recommend.

    Love this book! Dani brings together her amazing insight with her awesome art. It is a great resource. And it’s so easy to find what you need in the moment. Keep it close to where you work! And don’t be afraid to scribble in it and tear it up and whatever else the exercises suggest!

    10 out of 10. If you’re this far, and sitting here debating on it, make the jump and buy it. This book has been astounding and incredibly helpful in so many ways, allowing me to also learn about myself along the way. I had one of the original pre orders, and it was worth every second and every penny for the wait.

    If you or someone in your life is a little 🔥neurodivergent, and struggles with various roadblocks on things like menial tasks or even some of the big scary tasks – this book is phenomenal. It’s not for everyone but if you’re reading this far and into the reviews, you’re probably someone who would enjoy it. From the writing and creative stance of the exercises and words of encouragement, to the relatable cursing when things go sideways.

    I’d buy this again in a heartbeat regardless of the price. It’s easily worth the same as a few hundred dollars with a professional counselor (NOTE – do not use this to fully substitute professional help/assistance). I use this book in conjunction with therapist and a psychiatrist, and it’s been priceless.

    The Anti-Planner is SO helpful! It really makes me examine what block I’m facing, so that I can pick a strategy to move past it. While I have heard of some of the strategies in the book, most of them are totally new to me. I could try a new one every day and still not repeat for like a year. Even my non-ADHD friend found some great strategies to try!
