Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

This book is an interesting and informative one for undergraduate and graduate students and allied mental health and health professionals to add to their libraries or reading lists. It addresses issues of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, teens, and adults in an easy-to-read fashion. Basic understanding of ADHD, including its hypothesized etiologies, clinical presentation, diagnosis and assessment, and associated conditions, is presented in the first 9 chapters. The chapters "Educating the Individual and the Family," "Psychopharmacology," "Behavioral Management," and "Relevant Education and Civil Laws" should be especially useful to the reader.
