Hartmann, T., & Popkin, M. (2019). ADHD: A hunter in a farmer's world. Healing Arts Press.
“In this updated edition of his groundbreaking classic, Thom Hartmann explains that people with ADHD are not abnormal, disordered, or dysfunctional, but simply “hunters in a farmer’s world.” Often highly creative and single-minded in pursuit of a self-chosen goal, those with ADHD symptoms possess a unique mental skill set that would have allowed them to thrive in a hunter-gatherer society... As Hartmann shows, by reframing our view of ADHD, we can begin to see it not as a disorder, but as simply a difference and, in some ways, an advantage.” -publisher

They learn the first line of treatment for their preschool child with ADHD, which are behavioral interventions, whether they should discipline him for displaying behavior he cannot control, and how to teach him social skills when he is so distractible. Parents are taught to respond in an affirmative way to their child’s appropriate behavior, positively impacting his self-esteem.” -publisher
