ADHD 2.0: A Conversation with Author Ned Hallowell

Thursday, March 4, 2021

While most people have heard of ADHD and know someone who may have it, the potential upsides have been lost in the discussion. Many hugely successful entrepreneurs and highly creative people attribute their achievements to their ADHD, and recent research developments give a clearer understanding of the ADHD brain in action. In ADHD 2.0, Ned Hallowell and co-author John Ratey, both of whom have ADHD, or what they prefer to term “variable attention stimulus trait,” draw on the latest science to provide both children and adults a plan for minimizing the downside and maximizing the benefits of ADHD at any age. As inspiring as it is practical, ADHD 2.0 will help you tap into the power of this mercurial condition and find the key that unlocks potential.

Dr. Hallowell is an esteemed child and adult psychiatrist, a world authority on ADHD, and the author of 20 books on multiple psychological topics. He has been featured in numerous media outlets, including 60 Minutes, PBS, CNN, Dateline, Good Morning America, USA Today, Newsweek, Time Magazine, the Boston Globe, and many more. He is a regular columnist for ADDitude Magazine. Dr. Hallowell lives in the greater Boston area with his wife Sue.
