The ADHD Advantage

The ADHD Advantage

Why Your Brain Being Wired Differently is Your Superpower


Are you highly driven, creative, fearless, questioning, flexible, stubborn and enterprising? Are you able to think outside the box and shrug off almost every adversity?

Seeing all these positive qualities lined up, you might be surprised to learn that they are traits typical to people with ADHD.

Today, we label these traits as a 'disorder', but they were once essential to our ancestors' survival, giving them energy or ability to hyperfocus when hunting. It was quite simply advantageous to have these traits.

In The ADHD Advantage, leading psychiatrist and viral TedX speaker Dr Anders Hansen shows you how to turn your diagnosis into an asset, handle the negative aspects of ADHD, and find joy in the fact we aren't all the same.
