MEDIA REVIEWS
"Like a biography, this volume tells the complete story of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), with information on its history, diagnosis, risk factors, drug development, treatment, complications and associated conditions, and effects on the family. Hammerness (pediatric ADHD research, Harvard Medical School, and child and adolescent psychiatry, Newton Wellesley Hospital) reviews and summarizes the scientific literature for general readers and concludes with a chapter on recent advances, including genetic investigations, brain imaging, and adult ADHD." - SciTech Book News
