Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder : A Clinical Workbook by Russell A. Barkley, Kevin R. Murphy "A set of forms for clinicians to use after reading Barkley's (2nd. ed., Guilford Press, 1998). They include forms for use with children and adolescents, for evaluating adults, and for use during medication treatment. No date is noted for the first edition. No index. The plastic comb binding allows easy photocopying, which the copyright allows to buyers of the book."
Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Adults by Paul H. Wender "I have read/own several books on ADHD in adulthood (and in children/adolescents). A few years ago I couldn't find any but in recent years the writing of such books seems to have become a major enterprise. I ran into this book about 6 years ago (shortly after it was published) and found it to be one-of-a-kind and a real eye-opener. Since then I have continued to learn what I could about this condition which seems to run in my family. Now there are tons of "popular" books and "professional" books on the subject. I keep going back to this one. In fact, I'm only writing this because I was just checking to see if there was a new edition. In spite of all of the other books I've read, this remains my personal gold standard. It is clear and convincing."
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder : A Clinical Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment for Health and Mental Health Professionals by Larry B. Silver "New edition of a text which provides an overview of the continuum of neurobiologically based disorders believed to be comorbid with ADHD, including specific learning disorders, anxiety disorders, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. Silver (psychiatry, Georgetown U. School of Medicine) discusses the history of attention disorders, diagnosis, modulating disorders and tic disorders, basic treatment concepts, behavioral management, psychopharmacology, and relevant educational and civil laws. Appends a list of organizations and other resources for further study."

Hendren "Five contributions discuss current thinking including neurological underpinnings about attention-deficit/hyperactivity, conduct, oppositional defiant, substance use, and disruptive behavior disorders; and violence and mental illness in adolescence. Coverage includes historical perspectives, epidemiology, comorbitiy, etiology, diagnostic issues, treatment, prevention, and future directions. The contributors are psychiatrists affiliated with various academic institutions in the US, and two in Australia."
Handbook of Disruptive Behavior Disorders by Herbert C. Quay (Editor), Anne E. Hogan (Editor) "Synthesizes the current understanding of the group of disorders currently labeled DSM-IV, and which comprise at least three quarters of all the psychopathological disorders of childhood and adolescence: the three types of attention-deficit/hyperactivity, the two types of conduct disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder. Reviews classification, epidemiology, and assessment; deals with each of the specific types; and discusses special problems and issues, including mentally retarded patients, ethical and legal issues in research, gender and ethnicity, and research problems. Researchers, clinicians, teachers, and students in all the mental health fields may find useful information."
Handbook of Hyperactivity in Children by Johnny L. Matson (Editor) "An update on what is known and what is needed to be known in this rapidly expanding topic in the field of child psychopathology. The volume is divided into three sections: general issues (covering the history of the field, diagnostic and definitional parameters, theories, etiology, and methodology), assessment (for diagnosis, to delineate targets for intervention, and to evaluate treatment outcome), and treatment (including drug therapies, nutrition, and other interventions, particularly those that emphasize behavioral training strategies)."
