`Drawing on their rich background of clinical experience and scientific empiricism, Drs Anastopoulos and Shelton have provided all clinicians working with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) a gold standard reference for assessment and treatment. Emphasis is placed on scientific validity in making the diagnosis and in using a multimethod approach for treatment.'
Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, 156:1
`...we are happy to report that Assessing Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder by Anastopoulos and Shelton makes a major contribution to a field awash in myths, critics, skeptics, pariahs, personal agendas, and pseudoscience. With so many books aimed at the lowest common denominator, this work stands far above the crowd. ... The authors have immense clinical experience and an excellent track record of publication in academic journals. The book is thorough to a fault and provides critical analyses of the measures it endorses. Clinical vignettes are well chosen and keep the work from reading like a textbook. ...Anastopoulos and Shelton have made an important contribution by reviewing the existing methods and giving clear guidance. We commend them for taking on such a project and succeeding so admirably. Thanks to this book, more children with ADHD will be identified appropriately and treated properly, and less overdiagnosing or misdiagnosing will occur.'
The New England Journal of Medicine, 345:13
`Researchers and clinicians cannot afford to not have this text on their shelves. It represents the very best of what we know and can do today to evaluate, treat and hopefully direct to better the lives of children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder'
