“The standard reference in the field....Barkley's...theory of ADHD brings together his own vast knowledge of ADHD and other areas—developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, developmental neuropsychology, then bridges the deficits commonly found in ADHD with the broad area of executive functions. He is quite aware that he is breaking new ground, and that there is speculation in his formulations. But we are grateful he has put his good mind to developing this area. Having a theory to develop and test is a welcome development in this field....Because of Barkley's focus on executive functions, he is likely to bring some clarity to this often murky area....This book should be on every neuropsychologist's shelf. It gives the most complete up-to-date review of known research on ADHD.”

Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology

“There are few places where the wisdom of science and careful practice are articulated as well as in...Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A Handbook for Diagnosis and Treatment.... Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A Clinical Workbook is a nice companion to the handbook, and includes most of the forms necessary to supplement the model clinical evaluation and treatment program for individuals with ADHD. It is a 'must' for the clinician who would like to follow the guidance of Barkley and his colleagues.”

Psychiatric Times (on previous edition)

“A much needed and anticipated addition to any practicing clinician's library....The book is very well written, well edited, and well referenced....This new edition is a compelling update to a vast and ever-growing literature on a very prevalent, potentially devastating disorder. We highly recommend this book to clinicians and investigators in mental health.”

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

“Timely and important in that attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common reasons for referral to child and family behavior therapists and clinics in the United States and elsewhere....Barkley's book distinguishes itself in its coverage of the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD, reviewing issues in the assessment and ADHD, assessment goals and the information needed to conduct a valid and comprehensive interview. The companion book also provides assessment scales and questionnaires including a very comprehensive listing of differential diagnostic tips for distinguishing ADHD from other psychiatric disorders. He provides detailed parent questionnaires for assessing child behavior problems and he discusses the most widely used child behavior rating scales....Barkley also presents a clinical workbook that has significant clinical utility. He provides forms for use with children, adolescents and adults and provides comprehensive instructions for completing his checklists and questionnaires....Inclusive and thorough....One notable feature of Barkley's book is the extensive reference section at the end of each chapter. It is markedly inclusive and attests to the thoroughness with which he approached this revision....It is an excellent text for clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and physicians seeking a current resource on ADHD. It would be a good addition to any graduate psychology course on child or adult psychopathology where ADHD is an emphasized disorder.”

Child and Family Behavior Therapy

“The field cries out for an authoritative handbook and this need has been filled by Russell Barkley, an undoubted leader as well as a pioneer in the field....This is a valuable resource for students and professionals, and for those family members looking for a comprehensive text. It is accompanied by a clinical workbook.”

The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

“This Handbook and Workbook are invaluable reference volumes and should be on the bookshelves of all mental health professionals who work (or perform research) with children, adolescents, and/or adults with ADHD....Does not disappoint as the ultimate, authoritative reference for both researchers and clinicians....Most important, the Workbook includes a limited photocopy license that gives users permission to duplicate the instruments for use with their patients or clients. Over time, clinicians will find that the ability to do so will allow this set to pay for itself many times over....This volume is a major addition to the scientific literature about ADHD. Its depth and breadth is second to none, and every area discussed within the Handbook is treated exhaustively. The reviews of relevant research are focused, balanced, current, and highly relevant. The inclusion of expanded content about the assessment and treatment of ADHD in adults is a highly welcomed addition that will increase the appeal of these highly popular volumes.”


“A good reference book to keep in one's personal library, and a definite place needs to be found in departmental libraries.”

Journal of Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

“This well written book provides a strong foundation on the history, symptoms, criteria, comorbidity, and etiology of ADHD. The editor's chapter on a theory of ADHD is a must read....The illustrations and examples are terrific....This is the definitive book by the definitive authority. This is the ultimate teaching tool for all ADHD clinicians....5 Stars!”

Doody's Review Service

“This is a readable, up-to-date standard reference book for anyone studying ADHD or practising in the field of ADHD. This edition well reflects the substantial advances in the field.”
