Jack Mace (Master of Divinity, AMBS) kind of came up by his own bootstraps as an ADHD person, graduating from high school in 1962 when learning disabilities weren’t well understood in American education. With his late college graduation in 1972 (BA Psychology, Bethel College) he hadn’t known much of LD himself until his graduation year. Following college, even a Seminary education was interrupted largely due to general lack of ADHD knowledge.
During this 12-year interruption, Mace carried on businesses simultaneously in photography and in structural steel drafting, taking on teaching in the fields of Drafting and Math. After Seminary, in 1990 training for Chaplaincy was interrupted (ADHD again) and he turned to carpentry, computer software training and sales, and leading a non-profit organization for housing rehab serving elderly, disabled, and poor clients in his community. For the past seventeen years, he's worked as a substitute teacher.
Just about everyone who has ever been in a leader position believes he/she knows enough to write an instruction book for others. Mace’s book, The Leader, is a narrative tale of a young leader who has lost his way and following, and who is guided back to responsibility by a trusted mentor.
