Book description

Building on the success of the first edition and addressing the advances in the field since its publication, Seija Sandberg has brought together a distinguished, international team to review the area of attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) in children and young adults. This 2002 edition was thoroughly revised and updated. Some chapters, such as those dealing with the genetic background and the adult form of the disorder, were completely new, and some of the areas dealt with in the first edition are being covered by new authors in the second. The writers are among the world's leading experts, both researchers and clinicians, in the area. This will be essential reading for all professionals involved in the management and care of people with ADHD.


‘It remains an easily readable and fully updated guide for individuals committed to the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.’

From reviews of the first edition‘Presents an extremely informative and readable discussion of hyperactivity and the critical facets of the disparity between Europe and North America in the approach to attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder … It should be particularly valuable for trainees in pediatrics, psychiatry, and neurology who treat attention deficits in children.’

‘It would be a good one to keep in a department, as a source of information for practice and teaching. Trying to understand the underlying mechanisms is engrossing and Sandberg’s book contributes to our attempts to unravel fundamental aspects of human behaviour.’

C. Sturge Source: Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

‘To any of us interested in brain-behaviour relationships their differentiation and origin is important and fascinating. Although we are only at the dawn of our understanding this book will definitely help that endeavour.’

‘The range and diversity of the topics covered by this book is its major strength … the array and depth of the material reviewed makes this recommended reading for anyone working in this area.’

'This is an incredibly comprehensive book, which contains a wealth of information.'

Source: Psychological Medicine

'All professionals involved in the management and care of people with ADHD will find the book very useful in increasing their understanding of the sometimes contradictory clinical picture and the underlying mechanisms of ADHD. Researchers in the field of child and adolescent mental health and developmental neuroscience will find the rapid expansion of scientific knowledge reviewed in detail and new issues emphasised.'
