In writing the book, she was dismayed to learn that children with inattentive ADHD continue to be under-diagnosed and adults with inattentive ADHD often are incorrectly diagnosed with depression or anxiety. I felt by the end, what I got was a book with advertisements, and more than a few sections where the author got to say "I told you so!

For those with TSDD it opens easily, maybe too easily, and they seek stimulation with greater caution. This hypothesis proposes that ADHD represents a lack of adaptation of members of hunter-gatherer societies to their transformation into farming societies. It has also been suggested that the autistic person might fall at zero to 1 inch and the schizophrenic in the 11 to 12 inch area (pg. There was no longer a tribal culture and hunters and their spouses lost their esteemed place in life’s hierarchy. org), to create more awareness about inattentive ADHD and the need for early diagnosis and treatment.

Adults in the ADHD group were uniquely able to postpone eating, sleeping and other personal needs and stay absorbed in the "urgent task" for an extended time.

When humanity experienced the agricultural revolution 10,000 years ago, a vastly different type of personality--the methodical “Farmer”--became dominant. As hunters, they would have been constantly scanning their environment, looking for food or threats (distractibility); theyd have to act without hesitation (impulsivity); and theyd have to love the high-stimulation and risk-filled environment of the hunting field. I would not, however, give it to a teen with ADD or ADHD, especially if that teen requires short-term or long-term medication to assist with attention and/or the development of executive skills.While the Farmer’s consciousness is very task focused, the Hunter’s consciousness may be considered open or diffused. Another factor in understanding ADHD is understanding the roles of the thalamus and reticular formation. The genocide they inflicted upon the conquered showed them to be amoral and predatory invaders of Europe and North America.
