Peter Shankman – ADHD and Faster Than Normal

Peter Shankman’s mind can do a four-minute mile, and he likes it that way.  He has been the keynote speaker for start-ups and Fortune 100s alike in over two dozen countries.  He hosts the “Faster Than Normal” podcast where he discusses the positive values of ADD and ADHD.  Peter is also the author of four books, with a fifth dropping in October!  Join me today as I discuss the power of ADHD with Peter, on Get Social Health.
