About this deal

I did appreciate this book but I feel like the author's work would have benefited from including more nuance and some sensitivity readers.

How to harness your ADHD “hunter” strengths to start your own business and prosper in the workplace. Providing a supportive "survival" guide to help fine tune your natural skill set, rather than suppress it, Hartmann shows that each mind--whether hunter, farmer, or somewhere in between--has value and great potential waiting to be tapped. Thom Hartmann describes these ideas in a book that belongs in the hands of every educator, counselor, doctor, and parent. Not unlike that quintessential of all Hunters, the lion, they have incredible bursts of energy—but not necessarily a lot of staying power.Ritalin can also increase blood pressure, cause weight loss and hair loss, though in general it has been considered safe. I Disregarding that traits are labelled ‘hunter’ or ‘farmer’ it was interesting to hear more about how they developed and why they might be under utilised in a modern office environment. The hypothesis also explains the distractibility factor in ADHD individuals and their short attention span for subjects that do not interest the individual (which may or may not trigger hyperfocus), along with various other characteristics such as hyperactivity and impulsivity. The current understanding of ADHD not necessarily meaning you're bouncing off the walls but that your brain might be the hyperactive part, is so relatable for me.

Again, Hartmann offers a number to strategies for the Hunter to find ways to sleep in the current Farmer’s world, strategies often hypnotic in nature.With our structured public schools, office workplaces, and factories those who inherit a surplus of "hunter skills" are often left frustrated in a world that doesn't understand or support them. He reveals how some of the world's most successful people can be labeled as ADHD hunters and offers concrete non-drug methods and practices to help hunters--and their parents, teachers, and managers--embrace their differences, nurture creativity, and find success in school, at work, and at home.

Whereas, non-ADHD children are the "farmers" who are patient, methodical, and focused over long periods of time. The rest of us who can plan out our lives and sit behind desks are the descendants of the humans who started farming. This opposite has been considered normal in our culture, but there is a disadvantage to this ability, i.

These questions and some possible answers are woven through this book, providing basic factual information about ADHD with a twist that helps readers recognize the value—sometimes quite special—of people who have it. He does spend time talking about the high incidence of ADHD in prisons, outside of a very brief paragraph he avoids discussing the systemic reasons that people of color, and people in poverty are less likely to get treatment for ADHD, and more likely to have harsh sentences for crime. The second half of the book is a bit more generic, and you’ll probably find that your interest correlates negatively depending on how many other adhd type books you’ve read.

Personally, I also didn't like the narration at all, and found the narrator, quote unquote, annoying. In this groundbreaking book, Thom Hartmann makes a unique contribution to our understanding of ADHD. Another factor in understanding ADHD is understanding the roles of the thalamus and reticular formation. With our structured public schools, office workplaces, and factories those who inherit a surplus of “hunter skills” are often left frustrated in a world that doesn’t understand or support them. Providing a supportive “survival” guide to help fine tune your natural skill set, rather than suppress it, Hartmann shows that each mind--whether hunter, farmer, or somewhere in between--has value and great potential waiting to be tapped.But since they appear average they are unable to find the support they need to help them go beyond just being average. it has been an epiphany for me and I tell anyone I hear with ADHD, about this book; of course I do, we are over sharers! In 1979 Hartmann and his wife Louise founded New England Salem Children's Village whose main purpose is to provide a home and a nurturing environment for neglected and emotionally disturbed children and New England Salem Childrens Trust (NESCT).
