The ADHD Advantage

by Dale Archer


ADHD is a condition that includes difficulty with attention, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity. Over the last few decades, there has been a surge in the number of ADHD cases, resulting in widespread misdiagnosis and misunderstanding of the complex disorder.

Dr. Dale Archer, a New York Times best-selling author, is a board-certified psychiatrist with ADHD. As a distinguished fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, Archer focuses on breaking down the social stigmas surrounding ADHD and its treatments.

The ADHD Advantage explores the increasing levels of over-diagnosis, today's pill-popping culture, and how people with ADHD can make their symptoms work for them rather than suppressing them with medication.

It's not exactly that people with ADHD are adrenaline junkies. It is simply the level of excitement we need for balance, to even out our neurochemistry and help us function at a high level.
