"Thom Hartmann's Adult ADHD is a classic. This book is
inspiring, validating, and an extremely practical guide for the
entrepreneur with a 'hunter's' mind. Adult ADHD continues to
make an important and unique contribution to the field and to
adults with ADHD who long to lead a meaningful and satisfying
life." * Sari Solden, MS, LMFT, author of Women with Attention
Deficit Disorder and Journeys Through ADDultho *
"Thom Hartmann is one of the most prolific cultural-creatives of our time. In this book he discloses the inner secret of how he uses his own self-diagnosis of Adult ADD, to 'make the lemonade' from what otherwise might be considered a disorder. Likewise, he shows how many of the movers and shakers of our world have succeeded the same way he has--by recognizing how their unique 'hunter' talents readily lead both to creative opportunities and financial success." * Stephen Larsen, Ph.D., author of Joseph Campbell: A Fire in the Mind and The Neurofeedback Solution *
"As an empathetic native guide, Hartmann inspires hunters to revel in their evolutionary legacy. He provides empowering strategies for transforming ADHD challenges into tools for prospering in the farmer's domain. The motivating success stories reveal a multitude of paths to self-acceptance and celebrate the triumph of neurodiversity over conformity." * Ellen Littman, Ph.D., coauthor of Understanding Girls with ADHD *
"My therapy clients often compare ADHD to a radio that is on scan--they jump from station to station and get a lot of static. This book is like landing on The Thom Hartmann Program on your radio--a rare voice of calm, clarity, and compassion that reminds us our so-called deficits can often reveal our greatest strengths." * Rabbi Hillel Zeitlin, LCSW-C, director of the Maryland Institute for Ericksonian Hypnosis & Psychoth *
