Dr. Edward M. Hallowell and Dr. John J. Ratey, two internationally renowned authors, literally "wrote the book" on ADD/ADHD over two decades ago. Driven to Distraction, their best-selling book, was instrumental in popularizing this diagnosis and selling over a million copies.
Most people are now aware of ADHD and are aware of someone who may be affected. However, the potential upside of ADHD diagnosis in both children and adults is often overlooked. ADHD has been credited with the success of many incredibly successful entrepreneurs and creative people. Recent research advancements, such as innovations that provide a clearer understanding of the ADHD brain in action, are also unknown to the majority of people. Drs. Hallowell and Ratey, both of whom have this "variable attention trait," use the most up-to-date science in ADHD 2.0 to give parents and adults with ADHD a plan for minimizing the negative effects of ADHD and maximizing the positive effects at any age. They include a slew of new strategies and lifestyle hacks for dealing with ADHD, such as
Identify the appropriate level of difficulty. Use these behavioral assessments to find the job, activity, or creative outlet that is best suited to a person's specific strengths.
Reconsider your surroundings. What to look for at home, school, and work to boost the ADHD mind's inherent creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.
Embrace your brain's natural proclivities. Take advantage of recent discoveries about the brain's default mode network and cerebellum, which have significant implications for ADHD sufferers.
