ADHD causes more than just distractibility and restlessness. Dr. John Kruse capitalizes on his training in neuroscience and decades of experience as a psychiatrist to explain how the concept of "executive function deficits" illuminates why ADHD can manifest as impulsivity, inconsistency, emotional volatility, troubles prioritizing, and poor follow-though, but also as spontaneity, creativity, and extreme candor. We avert tragedies by accurately identifying and treating adult ADHD, yet far too often we fail to recognize the condition.

Through his political prominence and prominent symptomatology, Mr. Trump nominated himself the poster boy for adult ADHD. The president also showcases how we frequently ignore or mischaracterize even florid ADHD-driven behaviors, particularly in individuals who also display other mental health conditions. Recognizing Adult ADHD utilizes information in the public record to demonstrate how Mr. Trump robustly fulfills the objective, behavioral diagnostic criteria for ADHD.

Recognizing Adult ADHD explores feedback loops by which sleep, diet, exercise, social media, and Mr.Trump himself, drive our society in evermore ADHD-like directions. Dr. Kruse charts a path for reducing stigma around ADHD and other mental health conditions by delving into the intertwined fields of neuroscience, psychiatry, ethics, and politics. While the frenetic pace and information overload of our ADHD world threatens to submerge each day in new angst, this book adds nuance to help us navigate our lives.
