Addicts and Millionaires
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a wonder. Those that have it have been called annoying, frustrating, unorganized, lazy, stupid, distracted, emotional, scatterbrained, and impulsive. Kids dealing with it are far more likely to perform poorly in school. ADHD adults are more prone to jump from job to job. Many people who have it try to keep it a secret. Yet ADHD may just be responsible for many (most?) of the best-known innovations and ideas of the past century or so. In other words, if you consider yourself an ADHDer you’re in good company. In this book, Mark Patey, ADHD, explores lessons learned from interviews with addicts and millionaires, describes their struggles and successes, and explains what you can do to leverage the gift and minimize the curse that is ADHD. Mark Patey is a serial entrepreneur, an owner of multiple businesses, a world record-holding pilot, an internationally recognized speaker, the eccentric neighbor you’ve always wanted, and a card-carrying ADHDer.
