Editorial Reviews

Review

“By framing ADHD as primarily a set of personality traits and a unique learning style, instead of as a disease or a disorder, Dale Archer moves psychiatry a step in the right direction. Written in an engaging style, the book is a refreshing change from the medicalizing of normal childhood difficulties.”
Marilyn Wedge, PhD, author of A Disease Called Childhood
 
“This book changes the conversation about ADHD by focusing on strengths rather than deficits. With a healthy mix of research findings, real-life stories and observations, Dale Archer convincingly shows that in the right context, ADHD symptoms can be leveraged and provide advantages. I feel particularly satisfied that he acknowledges the linkages between ADHD and entrepreneurship. The book provides me and other academics with ideas and inspiration to delve deeper into the topic.”
Johan Wiklund, Professor of Entrepreneurship at Syracuse University
 
"By trying to suppress and medicate ADHD out of existence, we risk suppressing the gifts that are part of the package.  Dale offers an array of useful and insightful alternatives for leveraging these strengths without the aid of a pill.  Overmedicating...could dim the light that could be the next great business leader, explorer or innovator."
—From the Foreword by Allen Frances, MD, Chair of the DSM-IV Task Force, author of Saving Normal
