"Peter is a pioneer, an adventurer, an inventor and a seer. His advice is the best kind of advice. It is advice learned in the trenches, in the arena, on the fields of life."
--Edward Hallowell, MD, from the Foreword, bestselling author of Driven to Distraction
“Peter Shankman is living proof that living outside the bell-shaped curve, combined with a drive to succeed, can produce amazing results.”
--Jordan D. Metzl, MD, author of The Exercise Cure
“While ADHD may be considered a ‘deficit’ to some, Shankman positions it as an attribute within the context of our immediate future. ADHD is a unique gift of creative synthesis that makes sense only inside of the complex digital networks and hyper-stimulation that now defines us.”
--Amanda Steinberg, CEO, Worth Financial and author of Worth It

A bonus: I don’t have ADHD, but I still came away with some excellent tips on getting in shape, getting organized ... basically becoming a more productive person. And I trust Peter – he might have ADHD, but he’s someone who can write an entire book on an 18-hour flight. He has mastered focus!
Great advice to those with ADHD, those who live with people with ADHD, those who have kids with ADHD. Thank you for this book, Peter!
I can't sit still long enough to read a book, this one has my attention and I cannot put it down.
Putting words, experience, rules, and sense to what I have dealt with over my lifetime, I wish I would have found this sooner. If you, your spouse, children or family members have ADD/ADHD, you will learn what they cannot tell you about how their brains work.
Buy this book and listen to what Peter is telling you regardless if you have ADD or not. You will gain time in the day you never thought you had. Thank you Peter!
Peter is fun to read, and it's so refreshing to approach my ADD as a superpower to be channeled, not a problem to be managed. Sure, most of us can't skydive and chill or fly to Tokyo just to write a book *cue eye roll* but we definitely all develop weird coping mechanisms.
I didn't read the book so much for the hacks. Books are my source of dopamine, and I read more self-help and business books than is healthy (although I'm a writer and editor, too, like Jennifer Harshman on his FTN podcast). I know the tricks and the strategies, but I really enjoyed reading his book and listening to his podcast. It's just nice to know I'm not alone and that AD(H)D looks different on everyone.
Highly recommended for anyone who's ever been overwhelmed by a calendar.
Since being diagnosed with ADHD as a grad student in 1995, I have read A LOT of books on ADHD. What puts this title at the top of my "must-read" books are the practical tools Shankman suggests as well as the necessary reframing that needs to happen in order to leverage my brain's differences and make them work for me rather than against me.
Shankman writes from his own personal expeerience and with his disarming style of self-deprecation. He's been in the same trenches and knows how hard one must work to be successful with ADHD. Not in spite of it, but because of it.
