Praise for THE ADHD ADVANTAGE
"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
"By trying to suppress and medicate ADHD out of existence, we risk suppressing the gifts that are part of the package. Dale offers an array of useful and insightful alternatives for leveraging these strengths without the aid of a pill. Overmedicating...could dim the light that could be the next great business leader, explorer or innovator."
--From the Foreword by Allen Frances, MD, Chair of the DSM-IV Task Force, author of Saving Normal
