“The standard reference in the field....[Barkley's] theory of ADHD brings together his own vast knowledge of ADHD and other areas….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....This book should be on every neuropsychologist's shelf.”

Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology (on the third edition)

“A much-needed and anticipated addition to any practicing clinician's library....Very well written, well edited, and well referenced.”

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry (on the third edition)

“Timely and important in that 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….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 (on the third edition)

“Does not disappoint as the ultimate, authoritative reference for both researchers and clinicians....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.”

PsycCRITIQUES (on the third edition)

“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....The definitive book by the definitive authority. This is the ultimate teaching tool for all ADHD clinicians....*****!”

Doody's Review Service (on the third edition)

“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.”

Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease (on the third edition)

“A virtual encyclopedia of ADHD, this volume details current conceptualizations of this important, common, and controversial disorder, as well as future directions for the field. The fourth edition is remarkable for its wide-ranging scope and depth and its unique perspective that will be appreciated by both scientists and clinicians. Destined to be a classic in child and adult psychopathology and treatment.”

—Mark A. Stein, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science, University of Washington

“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
