ADD: A Different Perception has become a classic in the literature on ADD and psychiatry in general.
It challenges our medical and cultural assumptions that all deviations from the "norm" are "defects," and offers a new perception of ADD, grounded in the new science of Evolutionary Medicine, that posits ADD may have many positive and beneficial aspects.
In fact, Hartmann asserts, having ADD in the gene pool was both essential to the survival and success of early humans, and is one of the driving forces for change, invention, and innovation in the modern world.
