No Evidence for Strong Recent Positive Selection Favoring the 7 Repeat Allele of VNTR in the DRD4 Gene". Hartmann claims that most or all humans were nomadic hunter-gatherers for hundreds of thousands of years, but that this standard gradually changed as agriculture developed in most societies, and more people worldwide became farmers. Of course that could be true sometimes that teachers try to insist on some medical backup in the classroom, it's up to parents to advocate for their ADHD kids and say no if they don't think that's what the kid needs. When humanity experienced the agricultural revolution 10,000 years ago, a vastly different type of personality--the methodical “Farmer”--became dominant. 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!How to harness your ADHD “hunter” strengths to start your own business and prosper in the workplace. Failure to be fully aware of the environment and notice the faint sound might mean a swift and painful death or the difference between a full belly and hunger.

A genetic variant associated with ADHD has been found at higher frequency in more nomadic populations and those with more of a history of migration. I found it much more coherent this time around and although Hartmann's description of the underlying traits of ADHD are accomplished I am simply unconvinced by his main thesis. Genetic variants (such as the DRD4 7R allele, as well as others on DRD4 and DRD2) conferring susceptibility to ADHD are very frequent—implying that the trait had provided selective advantage in the past. They were the kids who always got into trouble, the James Deans of the world, the rootless and unsettled adults like Abraham Lincoln’s father, The Lone Ranger, or John Dillinger.I stumbled upon this book when looking for information that could help me better understand the depths of the condition, and it seemingly came to me at the exact time I needed it.

He reveals how some of the worlds most successful people can be labeled as ADHD hunters and offers concrete non-drug methods and practices to help hunters--and their parents, teachers, and managers--embrace their differences, nurture creativity, and find success in school, at work, and at home. Hartmann developed the idea first as a mental model after his own son was diagnosed with ADHD, stating, "It's not hard science, and was never intended to be.It really seems to lose its coherence to the evolutionary argument and lets rampant capitalism take over. This book helped me better understand ADHD and gave me practical strategies on how to deal with these children in the classroom. The author mentioned Japanese as an aggregate being a farming culture, yet there were parts of Japan that we’re hunter/gathering like the Ainu who have for the most part assimilated into Japan as a whole. Schools, employers and families are missing out on what could be attained if these individuals were provided with what they need to attain their potential. for instance, if adhd is as useful as she proclaims then their would be a minimalistic need to self medicate for it to semi adapt in a farmer world of delay gratification.
