"For over two decades, no reference has better synthesized the full scope of basic and clinical ADHD science than Barkley's Handbook. In its fourth edition, an expanded group of authors provides updated views on ADHD and its management, integrating recent research in brain imaging, genetics, neuropsychology, clinical phenomenology, and treatment. The volume's developmental perspective is highly useful and fully acknowledges ADHD as a lifespan disorder. The editor's Key Clinical Points in each chapter ensure that the book is as clinically relevant as it is complete. The Handbook remains essential reading for any clinician, researcher, or student with serious interest in ADHD."--James J. McGough, MD, MS, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles
"An impressive work bringing together many of the most prominent investigators of the etiology, assessment, and treatment of ADHD. The coverage is comprehensive, reflecting the voluminous literature on ADHD that, despite its size, remains characterized by unanswered questions. There is an important blend of theoretical update, review of evidence, and pragmatic application of findings. Updates from the prior edition are clearly identified and numerous; the book's format facilitates quick reference and application by busy professionals. Particularly intriguing and important is the diversity of viewpoints reflected across the chapters--the volume does not shy away from such diversity, but rather embraces it."--Brooke S. G. Molina, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
