Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Forrest C. Bennett, MD (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: This book discusses the history, name changes, etiologies, assessment strategies and aids, and multimodal treatment approaches for attention deficit disorder (ADD) across the life span.
Purpose: It is intended to provide a concise, readable guide for the clinical diagnosis and treatment of the complex disorder known as ADD. It seeks to provide this information for the different developmental ages and stages from infancy to adulthood. This approach is unique and very useful. The objectives were fulfilled.
Audience: The book is written primarily for primary care clinicians (pediatricians, family practitioners, and general internists). It is also very appropriate for parents and related child development professionals. It should be excellent for residents. The author has an extensive history of working with patients with ADD.
Features: The tables and checklists are quite helpful. The references are excellent and provide a historic perspective. Additional parent and professional resources and recommended readings are particularly useful.
Assessment: This is a high-quality book concerning a prevalent and controversial condition. Its relative brevity and crisp style add to its potential usefulness. The author presents a very reasoned and practical approach to ADD. Although there are numerous books about this subject, this one is made unique by virtue of the organized life span format. Individuals from varied disciplines, bookstores, and libraries should buy this book.
