As a person who has experienced ADD first hand and how negatively it can impact a person's life, Jeff Hamilton's knowledge and experience with ADD has extended beyond most medical doctors. He has dedicated his efforts since 2003 to understanding, learning and training his brain to meet and beat the challenges of Adult ADD.
In doing so, Jeff created Pills Don't Teach Skills the blog in 2005, a personal story of winning the battle against Adult ADD. Jeff wanted to share the experience with others, in hope that it can serve as an example and inspiration that ADD can be effectively managed. Today, his site reaches approximately 100,000 unique monthly. The blog led to the creation and publishing of his book Pills Don't Teach Skills, available on his blog and at Amazon.com.
