ADHD 2.0: New Science and Essential Strategies for Thriving with Distraction--from Childhood through Adulthood
Publisher Ballantine Books
Publication Date 2022-01-04
Now in paperback with a reader’s guide—a revolutionary new approach to ADD/ADHD featuring cutting-edge research and strategies to help readers thrive, by the bestselling authors of the seminal books Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction
World-renowned authors Dr. Edward M. Hallowell and Dr. John J. Ratey literally “wrote the book” on ADHD more than two decades ago. Their bestseller, Driven to Distraction, largely introduced this diagnosis to the public and sold more than a million copies along the way.
Now, most people have heard of ADHD and know someone who may have it. But lost in the discussion of both childhood and adult diagnosis of ADHD is the potential upside: Many successful entrepreneurs and creative people attribute their achievements to ADHD. Also unknown to most are the recent research developments, including innovations that give a clearer understanding of the ADHD brain in action. In ADHD 2.0, Drs. Hallowell and Ratey, both of whom have this “variable attention trait,” draw on the latest science to provide both a plan for minimizing the downside and maximizing the benefits of ADHD at any age. They offer an arsenal of new strategies and lifestyle hacks for thriving with ADHD, including
• Behavior assessments to help readers discover the work, activity, or creative outlet best suited to their unique strengths.
• The specific elements to look for—at home, at school, or in the workplace—to enhance the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit inherent in the ADHD mind.
• New findings about the brain’s default mode network and cerebellum, which confer major benefits for people with ADHD.
• The facts about the underlying chemistry, side effects, and proven benefits of all the pharmaceutical treatment options.
