ADHD 2.0

by Edward M. Hallowell


Psychiatrist duo Edward M. Hallowell and John J. Ratey have dedicated their lives to research on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD. Having both been diagnosed with ADHD themselves, Hallowell and Ratey have written several books on the topic, including the groundbreaking comprehensive work on ADHD, Driven to Distraction.

ADHD 2.0 is the 2021 companion to Driven to Distraction, in which Hallowell and Ratey look at the updated science since the release of the latter in 1992. Discussing both the positive and negative symptoms of the condition, the connections in the brain that cause these symptoms, and possible treatment, Hallowell and Ratey provide an updated guide to thriving with ADHD at any age.
