"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."

Destined to be a classic in child and adult psychopathology and treatment."
