ADHD 2.0 PDF-A revolutionary new approach to ADD/ADHD featuring cutting-edge research and strategies to help listeners thrive, by the best-selling authors of the seminal books Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction

“An inspired road map for living with a distractible brain . . . If you or your child suffer from ADHD, this book should be on your shelf. It will give you courage and hope.” (Michael Thompson, PhD, New York Times best-selling co-author of Raising Cai)

World-renowned authors Dr. Edward M. Hallowell and Dr. John J. Ratey literally “wrote the book” on ADD/ADHD more than two decades ago. Their best seller, Driven to Distraction, largely introduced this diagnosis to the public and sold more than a million copies along the way. -ADHD 2.0 PDF

Now, most people have heard of ADHD and know someone who may have it. But lost in the discussion of both childhood and adult diagnosis of ADHD is the potential upside: Many hugely successful entrepreneurs and highly creative people attribute their achievements to ADHD. Also unknown to most are the recent research developments, including innovations that give a clearer understanding of the ADHD brain in action. In ADHD 2.0, Drs. Hallowell and Ratey, both of whom have this “variable attention trait”, draw on the latest science to provide both parents and adults with ADHD a plan for minimizing the downside and maximizing the benefits of ADHD at any age. They offer an arsenal of new strategies and lifestyle hacks for thriving with ADHD, including

  • Find the right kind of difficult. Use these behavior assessments to discover the work, activity, or creative outlet best suited to an individual’s unique strengths.
  • Reimagine environment. What specific elements to look for – at home, at school, or in the workplace – to enhance the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit inherent in the ADHD mind.
  • Embrace innate neurological tendencies. Take advantage of new findings about the brain’s default mode network and cerebellum, which confer major benefits for people with ADHD.
  • Tap into the healing power of connection. Tips for establishing and maintaining positive connection “the other Vitamind C” and the best antidote to the negativity that plagues so many people with ADHD.
  • Consider medication. Gets the facts about the underlying chemistry, side effects, and proven benefits of all the pharmaceutical options.

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.-ADHD 2.0 PDF

Edward (Ned) Hallowell, M.D. is a board-certified child and adult psychiatrist and world authority on ADHD. He is a graduate of Harvard College and Tulane Medical School, and was a Harvard Medical School faculty member for 21 years. He is the Founder of The Hallowell ADHD Centers in Boston MetroWest, New York City, San Francisco, Palo Alto and Seattle.

He has spent the past four decades helping thousands of adults and children live happy and productive lives through his strength-based approach to neurodiversity, and has ADHD and dyslexia himself.

Dr Hallowell is a New York Times bestselling author and has written 20 books on multiple psychological topics. The groundbreaking Distraction series, which began with Driven to Distraction, co-authored with Dr John Ratey in 1994, sparked a revolution in understanding of ADHD.

Having successfully managed both ADHD and dyslexia himself, he has famously said, “I don’t treat disabilities; I help unwrap gift!” When “disabilities” are seen instead by their mirror traits, these attributes can be channeled toward turbo-charged success. His Hallowell Centers offer comprehensive mental health diagnostic and treatment services to patients and their families.

Dr. Hallowell is the host of his new podcast called Dr. Hallowell’s Wonderful World of different where he celebrates the world of different in its many and varied forms. In celebrating the many differences that adorn humanity, he hopes to break down barriers of stigma and misunderstanding and show how all of us benefit from the differences between us.

Dr Hallowell has been featured on 20/20, 60 Minutes, Oprah, PBS, CNN, The Today Show, Dateline, Good Morning America, The New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, Time Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe and many more. He is a regular columnist for ADDitude Magazine.

Dr. Hallowell’s practices his trademark strength-based approach and always comes across as genuine, humorous, transparent and passionate whether he is practicing working with clients in the Hallowell Centers or addressing a wide range of topics in his writings and public appearances.

Elizabeth Kelsey “Let me start out by saying I LOVE Dr. Hallowell. Not only is he an expert in ADHD, he’s a fellow ADHDer himself. He also doesn’t push one approach ( medicine vs lifestyle) and acknowledges some things work for some people, depending on a number of circumstances ( severity of symptoms, environment, comorbidities, genetics, etc).

However, as someone who had a TERRIBLE reaction to Adderal, I felt really let down by his lack of acknowledgement about just how bad some of us react to certain stimulants.

I’m a pro WHATEVER WORKS person, whether that may be medication or lifestyle, or a combo of the two. ADHD has some wonderful attributes, but the challenges we face can be so so many. Just going to run an errand at the store can be difficult ( overwhelming, overstimulating, etc).

When I finally got diagnosed at 37, I felt hopeful when I filled my prescription that the low dose Adderal could help me. My nurse told me we didn’t know how I’d react, and I understood that. I get it’s a game of finding what works, and that genetics is a factor.

However… I wasn’t prepared for how horrendous the 3 days on it would be. It was as though I was being emotionally tortured during the comedown, which was periodically throughout the day, since I was taking extended release. The nights-when it would completely wear off-were the worst. On the 3rd day, my family saw what it was doing to me. I was either a zombie OR during comedown, a complete wreck that was in emotional pain that’s hard to describe. Calling it irritable ( as Hallowell says can happen) isn’t even close. I don’t have the words to explain it, only in that it was a horrible, horrible feeling.

My nurse told me to stop taking it immediately and flush my system, which I did.

I began researching Adderal and if anyone else had had the same reaction as I did, because I had heard so much good about this medication. What I discovered made me really upset: lots of women like myself ( and men) were having terrible reactions…but many think/thought they needed to ‘keep going’ because that’s the price of focus.

I stumbled upon an article on a pro medicine ADHD blog ( by Gina Pera) called The Tragic Truth of Prescription Adderall, or “Madderall”. The author- whose husband has ADHD- goes in depth into just how dangerous the affects of Adderall can be on people, while acknowledging ‘ Prescription Adderall works very well for some people, some of the time’ and ‘For others, however, Adderall effects can create more problems than it solves—exacerbating anxiety, irritability, anger, grandiosity, and even rage.’

Now, I didn’t experience rage, but something along the lines of extreme unease and irritibility.

The article goes into how for those who have a bad reaction, it can DESTROY RELATIONSHIPS, or by the very least, put a strain on them.

Now, since Dr. Hallowell isn’t a huge ‘drug only’ person, I had expected in his book that he would do those of us who had an adverse reaction a favor in at least mentioning it, which would make us feel acknowledged, and which would also help anyone who is talking with their Dr. or nurse at least bring up some concerns.

Instead, it’s rather downplayed, almost mentioned in passing as though the side effects aren’t a big deal for those of us who experience them. In one chapter, he says ‘ Stimulants are the ADHD drug of choice. They have been shown to be the most effective with the fewest side effects.’ I know for a fact that regarding the latter half of the sentence, there ARE side effects, and for some people, they can be scarring, and as Gina Pera mentions, they can damage a person’s relationships.

In another section of the book, the Drs mention some side effects are irritability and whatnot, but again, this is sort of mentioned in passing, as though no biggie.

I truly hope that more Drs. both acknowledge BOTH that stimulants work for some people, AND go into just how bad the side affects some of us experience actually are. I wish I had known.

On a positive note, the book goes into just how powerful connection is for ADHDers, and that lifestyle factors can truly be significant in helping one improve one’s focus. He gives an example of a man who used jogging as a way of treating his ADHD symptoms, which is fantastic!

I’d like to close with this: I know firsthand how challenging ADHD is, and from the bottom of my heart, I hope that anyone struggling finds what works for you so you don’t have to keep suffering. If you are on the anti medication camp, keep an open mind. It DOES work for people.

And if you too had a bad reaction to Adderall or another medication, know that you aren’t alone.

EDIT: I wanted to update this review with a few things that are working for me. As I’ve previously mentioned, I had a HORRID reaction to stimulants. Since I’ve trained in nutrition and herbalism, I decided to give a more natural approach a go. This isn’t because I’m anti medication because as I’ve said, I’m for WHATEVER WORKS and has the least amount of side effects. But at the same time, I wanted to see if I could improve my symptoms naturally.

I read The Edge Effect, The Mood Cure, and a book on 5 htp ( I’ll update this review with the book name as soon as I can find where I put the book lol!). I learned that I’m what some psychologists would call a ‘ 2 e’ adult ( twice exceptional) which means I’m smart but deal with intensity and overexcitability on top of the ADHD and anxiety related issues. This basically means I’m just extra hypersensitive. What fun! 🙁

Anyhow, I started taking 5 htp to help with my mood issues and I swear to you, the difference has been night and day! It has improved my mood drastically, and also lowered my appetite so I’ve managed to lose about 15 pounds without really trying. I still have days which aren’t great, and I believe these are due to either anxiety or hormones. But in general, adding the 5 htp to my daily regime has honestly been life changing. I take DLPA and L-tyrosine along with it to increase dopamine.

Dr. H mentions in ADHD 2.0 how one rogue Doctor treats ADHD with benadryl. I actually read in a forum on PMDD and ADHD how some women are using benadryl for PMDD related issues, and in other forums how some doctors use it off label to treat anxiety ( in certain cases). I experimented with it and it’s a life saver when I have really bad anxiety. I usually only need to take one pill. The downside is that it makes me feel out of it and not as intelligent ( I space out), but I’ll take that over having anxiety!

I also really recommend Dr. Amen’s books on ADHD as his supplement and medication suggestions for the various types of ADHD are really helpful. It’s a shame his SPECT scan is so expensive as I would love to do that.”

aVeryVeryLongTime Customer “I’m confused….. this book seems oddly different than authors’ prior works…….

🙁 🙁 🙁

Now…. my bookmark is at 3/4ers and the authors say something like “go out and have a good life.” What? I’m at the end of the book? YUP! The remaining 1/4 is fluff. AND THIS IS A THIN BOOK TO BEGIN WITH OF T-W-O AUTHORS’ work. <([See pix])>

Bless the doctors for their previous work which was profuse, in CONTRAST to this sparse 2.0. But…. “every brain has to find its own way in life,” right?

I’ll conject their deadline was the 2020 elections…. and, so, their purpose????? Could their purpose be their chapter on
that the authors say either (1) exacerbates or (2) placates ADHD symptoms? And could such favorable environments uniquely and profusely manifest in upper-levels of caucasian heredity simply because of this heredity? Or are these more cultured peoples (heredity), in reality, be of pragmatically LEARNED sensitivities to experienced negative stimulus and so to stringently be avoided?

It strikes me that the message the authors intend is that those who gain favor, in some way, like higher education, are labeled from putting the less fortunate in an arena of being described as offensive, despicable and deplorable. That when my hard work [or my ancesters or theirs’] achieves life’s improvements then I simultaneously get awarded the negative title of “privileged.” As if I don’t deserve what I worked for? Should I be penalized for advancing myself? Climbing the proverbial ladder of success is, in reality, DESERVED damnation according to these authors?”

TOTSUKA “With ADHD 2.0, Hallowell and Ratey did it again! If Driven to Distraction was the Old Testament that set up the story, ADHD 2.0 is the New Testament that offers the solution, one that includes minimizing the downside and maximizing the benefits of living with ADHD. It is now my #1 strength-focused ADHD resource. It’s written for the ADHD brain so it’s concise and to the point. No one page paragraphs here! The science (and there’s plenty of exciting new research and innovations discussed) is presented in a way that is interesting and easy to understand.

I loved learning new information about the brain, specifically on the task positive network and default mode network and how when we’re in action it’s when we feel best, the cerebellum connection and balance and the importance of connection for our ADHD brains. ADHD 2.0 left me inspired and full of optimism, hope and positive emotion which is exactly what our brains need to be wildly successful.”

H “This book will absolutely save lives. It’s the first book I have read to the very end in a decade. I think it is the beginning of changing my life.

I learned so much about myself and how my brain works. By knowing how things really work, it makes living adhd so much less terrible. Lot of practice moving forward but this book has a lot of practical information for people with adhd.”
