The past several years have seen an explosion of ADHD discussion, inclusing its validity as a true illness, the diagnostic process, and hte impact of ADHD on individuals and their families. Despite this awareness, many healthcare providers and the general public continue to underestimate the significance of ADHD as a life long condition. Unlike many childhood medical conditions, most children with ADHD do not outgrow their symptoms. 6-9% of all American children are diagnosed with ADHD and 40-70% will have symptoms that persist into adulthood. This leaves us with a myriad of unanswered questions about the trajectory of ADHD from childhood to adulthood as well as the various implications of ADHD both treated and untreated, in adolescence and adulthood.

In this book, Dr. Young, a psychiatrist who has been treating and researching ADHD for more than 15 years, takes a comprehensive look at ADHD in adults. Dr. Young addresses the various aspects of the disorder in adolescence and adulthood, including: the initial presentation, the diagnostic process, common co-occorring disorders, treatments for ADHD, and the many social, relational and health corollaries that adult ADHD brings about. Unlike much of the existing literature, Dr. Young's focus is on the implications of this diagnosis in adolescents and adults. He uses clinical examples in order to outline various points, as well as offering useful tables and various screening tools to provide a better understaning of the most pertinent questions related to this disorder.
