Gift of Adult ADD by Lara Honos-Webb
Book DescriptionThis book about living well with adult ADD is all about shifting perspectives. Not only does it offer insights into life with ADD, but it also works to shift the reader's vision of themselves. The book helps readers by encouraging them to see their ADD symptoms as gifts rather than pointless afflictions. In addition, the approach taps into the positive psychology revolution by offering guidelines for building on strengths rather than excessive focus on patching up weaknesses. "The Gift of Adult ADD" reviews the sweeping cultural changes of globalization and the technology of the digital age and how the gifts of ADD provide an almost perfect match for the demands of these cultural changes. In addition to job performance, domains such as interpersonal relationships, parenting, creativity, and connection to the environment are covered.
