Can drugs cure Attention Deficit Disorder? Why are some ADD children and adults more successful than their "normal" peers? What professions are best for ADD people? In this ground-breaking book, author Thom Hartmann presents a new and very welcome approach to Attention Deficit Disorder. His is the first book to explain clearly that ADD, rather than being a problem, may actually be beneficial. He sees ADD sufferers as "hunters", totally focused on movement, constantly monitoring their environment and exhibiting incredible bursts of energy. Correctly approached, these characteristics can be harnessed to create an overall positive effect. These "hunters" find themselves in our contemporary society surrounded by non-ADD sufferers or "farmers" cautious, slow and steady workers. This positive and long-awaited book explains how adults and children with ADD can adapt and function more creatively and productively in today's world. Thom Hartmann also identifies ADD individuals who have helped to change the world they lived in - Ernest Hemingway, Thomas Edison and Benjamin Franklin.
