From the Publisher
Thom Hartmann is the creator of the Hunter-Farmer theory about ADD, profiled in Time magazine, which theorizes that today's Attention Deficit Disorder is a remnant of the hunter/gatherer society of ancient times. His pioneering book has sold over 100,000 copies. He is the author of six books on ADD. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

"You absolutely must read this book! Thom Hartmann provides people with Attention Deficit Disorder great hope, encouragement and a sense of direction." -- Paul Elliott, M.D., ADD specialist. "This book is in large measure a presentation of shared stories about individuals who have succeeded in engineering their environments to help them both overcome and utilize the characteristics of their ADD. -- John J. Ratey, M.D., co-author of Driven to Distraction. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Many of the successful strategies given are from those individuals who have learned to control and focus this "multi-tasking" part of their personality becoming quite successful in the process. Mr. Hartmann balances this view of A.D. as a "gift" with ample examples of the pain, tragedy, or mere lack of success which can occur when the A.D. individual is put in the wrong circumstance.
This book is refreshing departure from the countless books which rehash the "disorder" with the usual history, diagnostic criteria, and treatment. As a modestly successful A.D. individual who has great difficulty finishing a book, I was pleasantly supprised to have finished it in an evening (long) and greatly enjoyed sharing its salient points with my family.
My favorite quote in the book was: "I'm not Attention Deficit, you're just boring!"
