Summary "A new approach reframing ADD/ADHD as a personality trait that most people have to some degree, featuring cutting-edge research and strategies to help readers thrive, by the internationally bestselling authors of the seminal ADD books Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction World-renowned authors Edward M. Hallowell, M.D. and John J. Ratey, M.D. literally "wrote the book" on ADD/ADHD more than two decades ago. Their bestselling book, Driven to Distraction, largely introduced readers to the behaviors, diagnosis, and treatment of this "disorder" and sold more than a million copies along the way. Now, in ADHD 2.0, they present a revolutionary new idea: What if we viewed impulsivity, distractibility, and hyperactivity as personality traits instead of symptoms? Furthermore, what if we learned to value and harness these traits for the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit they tend to breed? Introducing the bold new concept that ADD/ADHD is really the outward manifestation of what they call the Variable Attention Stimulation Trait (V.A.S.T), Drs. Hallowell and Ratey--who both have this trait--update the science, research, and treatments (when necessary) now available for this ubiquitous condition. Through remarkable case studies, they also detail the latest innovative strategies and technologies for thriving at any age. As inspiring as it is inspirational, ADHD 2.0 stands to be the new bible for people on this trait spectrum"-- Provided by publisher.
