      Hi,

      I would like to do some more background reading about ADD and ADHD. I find that articles do not provide enough details so I am looking for some books that do go into detail. Any recommendations?

      Thanks!

      Hi,
      I found the following book very informative.
      Adult ADHD
      How to Succeed as a Hunter in a Farmer’s World
      Author: Thom Hartmann

      In my opinion ADHD is not a mental illness, neurological disorder or a character flaw. It is a genetic difference in brain wiring. We are not defective we are different.

      Thanks for your suggestions! The Hartmann book sounds very interesting.
