How does ADHD manifest itself in adult life? In general, the authors write, hyperactivity tends to diminish with age, impulsivity changes quality, and attention problems remain the same although they may become more disabling as organizational demands increase. The authors carefully answer the questions often posed by professionals and patients about these symptoms and other issues. They describe the diagnostic interview and the use of rating scales and include examples of the scales. They also provide a well—balanced review of associated psychiatric conditions, such as mood and anxiety disorders, Tourette's syndrome, oppositional and conduct problems, and substance abuse. Descriptions of all the primary approaches to treatment -- medication, psychological therapies, and environmental restructuring -- include vivid case examples.

"The three authors have extensive experience treating both children and adults with ADHD. Although this textbook discusses problems and issues relating to adult patients, it will help anyone to understand the full scope of the disorder. This is an excellent textbook for understanding ADHD both in childhood and in adult life and, thus, it should be useful to both the pediatrician and the family practitioner." -- Pediatric and Child Health

"A sensible book, well referenced and up—to—date, it should be on the shelf of any clinic that sees adults with self—regulatory disorders." -- Child Psychology and Psychiatry Review

"A comprehensive and authoritative text on the subject of [ADHD in adulthood] that combines a scholarly command of the literature and the extensive clinical experience of the authors into a masterful synthesis of the current state of knowledge. The book will be invaluable for both clinicians and researchers." -- American Journal of Psychiatry

"This volume will serve as an excellent introduction to the topic for those who find themselves consulted increasingly by patients themselves or by their physicins, as awareness of the persistence of ADHD into adulthood continues to burgeon. It is worthwhile reading for any clinician with an interest in human behavior." -- Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences

"This book, the first on adult ADHD for professionals since 1995, is an excellent resource... [it] provides comprehensive, accessible information both for clinicians and for informed lay persons." -- Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
