Excellent! Read along with my reluctant-reader teen granddaughter, who ate it up. She identified with many of the behaviors described, and took delight in pointing out others that USED to be problematic. The format cleverly provided review opportunities via multiple-choice quizzes with some side-splitting options. Another great feature we made immediate use of was the KITE decision-making process. At the very time that we were reading the Survival Guide, my teen was torn between her desire to visit a beloved teacher (who had just been diagnosed with asymptomatic stage 4 cancer) and her extreme anxiety at the prospect. After carefully working through KITE, she decided to make the visit - and followed through asap. So proud of her! Thank you, KITE!

4.5 stars rather than 5 because of some awkward vocabulary:

Repeated references to the reader having been "labelled" with the "label" ADHD. Why not diagnosed with a condition, for example?
Terminology in KITE was not user friendly: Know your situation, Inform yourself (of alternatives), Test the alternatives, Evaluate the alternatives. Hmmmm. We indentified the situation (to visit or not), listed possible approaches (write email, write letter, phone call, visit), determined +/- for each, and (luckily?) the optimal solution stood out clearly.
Options in KITE given as good/bad. Those are not usually difficult decisions! We used advantages/disadvantages or good/better/best instead.
