The New York Times bestselling author of Better Than Normal, esteemed psychiatrist Dale Archer, reveals how ADHD might be the key to your success. For decades physicians delivered the diagnosis of ADHD to patients as bad news and warned them about a lifelong struggle of managing symptoms. But The ADHD Advantage explodes this outlook, showing that some of the most highly successful entrepreneurs, leaders, and entertainers have reached the pinnacle of success—not in spite of their ADHD—but because of it. Although the ADHD stereotype is someone who can’t sit still, in reality people with ADHD are endlessly curious, often adventurous, willing to take smart risks, and unusually resilient. They are creative, visionary, and entrepreneurial. Sharing the stories of highly successful people with ADHD, Dr. Archer offers a vitally important and inspiring new way to recognize ADHD traits in oneself or in one’s loved ones, and then leverage them to great advantage—without drugs. As someone who not only has ADHD himself but also has never used medication to treat it, Dr. Archer understands the condition from a unique standpoint. Armed with new science and research, he hopes to generate public interest and even debate with his positive message as he guides the millions of people with ADHD worldwide toward a whole new appreciation of their many strengths and full innate potential.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“By framing ADHD as primarily a set of personality traits and a unique learning style, instead of as a disease or a disorder, Dale Archer moves psychiatry a step in the right direction. Written in an engaging style, the book is a refreshing change from the medicalizing of normal childhood difficulties.” Marilyn Wedge, PhD, author of A Disease Called Childhood
“This book changes the conversation about ADHD by focusing on strengths rather than deficits. With a healthy mix of research findings, real-life stories and observations, Dale Archer convincingly shows that in the right context, ADHD symptoms can be leveraged and provide advantages. I feel particularly satisfied that he acknowledges the linkages between ADHD and entrepreneurship. The book provides me and other academics with ideas and inspiration to delve deeper into the topic.” Johan Wiklund, professor of entrepreneurship, Syracuse University
