POSITIVELY ADD

Don’t be distracted by the bad news about ADD/ADHD.  Meet seventeen people from all walks of life, including political advisor James Carville, Books-a-Million chairman Clyde Anderson, and JetBlue CEO David Neelman, who have succeeded in a wide variety of high-interest fields: professional athlete, musician, reporter, chef, sportscaster, photographer, police officer, CEO. These people did not succeed despite their ADHD, they succeeded because of the special qualities that go hand in hand with the challenges of ADHD. A bestselling expert in the field teams up with a mother of triplets with ADHD to deliver a much-needed inspirational book that looks at ADHD from a rarely seen positive angle.

You may not believe it, but having ADHD is a gift. Still, it can be a hard gift to unwrap, so it may help to meet these fascinating people who realized that ADHD could help them achieve their dreams. These people did not succeed despite their ADHD, they succeeded because of their creative, energetic, and multifaceted personalities – all characteristics of ADHD. In addition, these seventeen biographies and interviews show how people with ADHD can succeed in a wide variety of high-interest fields: professional athlete, musician, reporter, chef, photographer, police officer, and CEO.

See ADHD from the positive angle that is rarely considered with a book that proves how good life with ADHD can be.
