"Lara Honos-Webb shows us how the demands of a global and digital culture may make the signature traits of ADD--inventiveness, need for stimulation, and interpersonal intuition--in high demand."
--Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind

"If you have ADD and have been looking for the meaning of your struggles, this book will change your life. You will see, beyond doubt, that it's time to stop patching up your weaknesses and start learning about your many gifts."
--Carol Adrienne, PhD, author of The Purpose of Your Life

"Honos-Webb's book is a wonderful guidebook for optimistic living. What one chooses to focus on grows, and Honos-Webb has provided the framework for others to learn this important philosophy. It is especially important for those with ADHD to embrace the positive side of their personalities."
--Stephanie Moulton Sarkis, PhD, author of Making the Grade with ADD and 10 Simple Solutions to Adult ADD

"In her newest book, Honos-Webb builds on the core principles of her previous work to show how adults with ADD can find fulfilling and rewarding lives by being who they are. 'Find what you love and are good at, and let that guide you, ' she advises, offering real-life stories of people who have done just that. In this inspiring book, Honos-Webb provides a host of specific activities to help adults with ADD use self-reflection, insight, and creativity to address weaknesses without letting those weaknesses overshadow their strengths and talents. The Gift of Adult ADD is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature that shows how to go beyond limiting--and misleading--diagnostic labels."
--Barbara Probst, MSW, LCSW, author of When the Labels Don't Fit

"A revolutionary, paradigm-shifting book that will undoubtedly change the way we think about ADD. Honos-Webb's contribution is a gift, providing no-nonsense strategies and inspiring examples of how to transform apparent deficits into strengths and assets."
--Kelly Howell, president, Brain Sync

"Talk about a gift! This book will be a true gift for anyone with ADD. While it can be discouraging to live with ADD, Honos-Webb's wise and helpful book will show readers how to use their ADD to improve their relationships and work lives. She then goes on to identify and explain the five specific gifts that adult ADD brings. This wonderful book has the power to transform the life and consciousness of anyone dealing with ADD."
--Mira Kirshenbaum, author of When Good People Have Affairs, Too Good to Leave, Too Bad to Stay, and Everything Happens for a Reason
