About Carol Gignoux
The Asset: Your Success Gene and the Myth of ADD, a brand new book authored by Carol Gignoux, M.Ed., explores the ground-breaking concept that people diagnosed with ADD (attention deficit disorder) or ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) possess special, unique and often amazing abilities. The book, being released chapter by chapter, is an exploration of how people with ADD / ADHD are different, and how these differences are an asset, not a deficit to their loved ones, co-workers, and society as a whole. After all, inventors, scientists and famous artists such as Einstein, Picasso, John F. Kennedy, Leonardo da Vinci, and Mozart all have made global contributions to humanity. And all were diagnosed with ADD.
Carol has coined the new term “rAfters,” to represent the special skills and unique abilities possessed by those with ADD / ADHD. “Rapid-fire Thinkers” have changed the world as we know it. For every idea that a non-rapid fire thinker has, a rAfter has ten. The law of averages makes this a winning situation as long as the rAfter has the tools to monitor, discern and understand their idea flow.
The Asset: Your Success Gene and the Myth of ADD, is based on Carol’s learning and experiences working with “rAfters” over the last 30 years. She also draws on her own her own life, having grown up with ADD herself. Carol brings a unique perspective and first-hand experience to this personal, and often touching, story.
