​What people are saying

amazon 5 star reviews

"I highly recommend this book for anyone who feels they have an active mind,or has been diagnosed with ADHD and is looking for ways to embrace this kind of thinking process. It is also an excellent reference book for educators and parents to understand students and children with active minds and to give helpful focusing tools. I am a retired teacher and i give this book an A+!"

"This book tells the story of a person who had the “excuse” of having ADHD and either way became successful. Who better than someone who fought and overcame a medical condition, related to focus and concentration, to give you tips to prevent procrastination and overwhelm, and to organize your life?"

"That's me. That's me. That's me! This phrase kept popping up as I read the first part of Break It to Make It. Reading this book has helped me understand that there is a reason why I am constantly rushing against deadlines: I have a lively mind. I jump from one task to another too easily, and sometimes this hurts my concentration and dedication to bigger projects."

"There are many productivity books and it would seem that Break It to Make it is just one more. Nothing further from the truth. In this book, the author Lu Mendoza, shows a very powerful method to use the potential of your mind to achieve what is important to you."
