For me, although it isn't aimed at adults, is "The Clinician's Practical Guide to Attentin-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder" by Marianne Mercugliano, M.D., Thomas Power, Ph.D., and Nathan Blum, M.D. (ISBN 1-55766-358-0) Has anyone else looked it over and have comments?

This book was published in 1999, has 350 pages, and is full of up-to-date research and gives specific information on various diagnostics and treatments for school age kids as well as lists of other resources that pertain to each chapter. If you want more detailed information than is provided in the popular self-help books, this is a super fantastic place to start and has been better than 99% of the books I've seen. It's technical in parts but still easy enough for non-medical professionals to read. If your local library doesn't have a copy (they probably won't) I'm sure it can be obtained through inter-library loan (ask your librarian for details). Best wishes, Don
