Psychiatric practitioners, seasoned and new alike, should welcome the recent publication of the third edition of Russell Barkley’s classic textbook on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The first editionwas published in 1981 and was followed by the second edition, which was published 17 years later in 1998. Fortunately, Dr. Barkley has not waited another 17 years to update his classic textbook, as research in the field of ADHD has accelerated considerably in recent years, making this new edition a much needed and anticipated addition to any practicing clinician’s library.
