Your husband won't recognize a problem until an authority figure (usually self or supervisor) notes problems of inattention to detail, or other problems, which he realizes will cause job loss.
If his occupation is one of the many jobs for which ADD symptoms are a plus [entrepreneur, computer operator, troubleshooter], then he NEEDS those behaviors, and they are a blessing.
If he likes to surf the computer, you might be able to get him, just for fun, to go to http://www.amenclinic.com/ac/default.asp and take the general, online test.
You could get "ADD & ADHD for Dummies" when it is released. It has not yet been released since it is waiting for the APA to meet, and decide whether ADHD will have 5 types, or stick to just 3.

ADHD is genetic. If you think they learned it somewhere, then that is a behavior disorder and not ADHD.
