Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Barkley gifts us all with this fourth edition of his classic work. You will find tons of new information--grounded in the most recent science--and the advice of one of the most experienced, thoughtful, and kind professionals we have. This book is brimming with wisdom that parents can put to use every day. Bravo, and thank you, Dr. Barkley!"--Edward M. Hallowell, MD, coauthor of Driven to Distraction

"This book woke me up, gave me a good cry, consoled me, then helped me plan for the future. Dr. Barkley gave me a better understanding of exactly how and why ADHD has been such a serious problem for my daughter. The book is written so you can easily digest it and follow the step-by-step advice to advocate for your child. It is candid and empathic. This book is my 'go to'--I refer to it daily and I will be giving copies to my family members and school counselors. Parents need this book!"--Kirsten W., Detroit

"This book is packed with useful information that makes it a go-to resource for the parents and kids I see in my clinical practice. It is difficult to imagine any question a parent might have about ADHD and its treatment that is not addressed here. The book provides how-to guidance in a straightforward, step-by-step format--including helpful tips for getting a thorough evaluation, dealing with behavior challenges, working with schools and teachers, managing medications, and navigating the teen years."--Peg Dawson, EdD, coauthor of Smart but Scattered

"Barkley has provided a scientifically grounded, up-to-date resource for parents. Readers will discover critical insights and specific guidance--from managing behavioral, social, emotional, academic, and health concerns, to navigating difficult conversations with children, teens, and teachers. The book is informed by Barkley's clinical experience and decades of research."--Kelly B. Cartwright, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Teacher Preparation, Christopher Newport University

"As the mother of a 16-year-old with ADHD and as a speech–language pathologist working with children of all ages, I am beyond glad this book came my way! It is the most thorough and practical book I have ever read on ADHD. This book has helped me gain so much insight into the disorder, along with practical methods for tackling some of the most difficult and puzzling aspects of it. Dr. Barkley has given me immediate things I can do to improve my son’s life, and guidance I can provide to the parents of children I work with. I love the suggestions for structuring the home–school relationship to help kids reach their potential, and the suggestions for taking care of yourself as a parent. This is an incredible resource for families."--Jennie M., Austin

"This book features pioneering research that provides new insight into preventing ADHD from becoming a major obstacle in a child's (and parent's) life....Parents will appreciate having this book on hand, and teachers will want a copy to show parents who are ready for a resource." (on the first edition)
, Intervention in School and Clinic Published On: 1997-01-01

"If any professional knows about ADHD, it is Russell A. Barkley....All in all, this is a splendid book." (on the first edition)
, Child and Family Behavior Therapy

"An excellent and readable book that will empower parents of children with ADHD." (on the first edition)
, NAMI Advocate Published On: 1996-07-31

"This is not just another book. This is a great book....Although aimed at parents, it has something for everyone involved with ADHD kids: teachers, psychologists, doctors, and family. I am not going to lend this book to parents (although I will show it to them) because they need to buy it so they have it on hand to read and reread." (on the first edition)
, Pediatric News

"This book is unique in its up-to-date and clear presentation of the scientific underpinnings of the disorder and the pragmatic, empirically based approach to intervention that it encourages. It is also very well organized and readable; it is probably the best available resource of this type." (on the first edition)
, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review

"I certainly plan to recommend this book to parents….It empowers parents to take charge of the life of their child with ADHD rather than feel constantly distressed and overwhelmed by the special needs of these unique children." (on the first edition)
, Canadian Medical Association Journal Published On: 1996-11-15

"I am always looking for the best book, the right book or the latest book. Let me tell you about one: Russell A. Barkley, PhD's, Taking Charge of ADHD." (on the revised edition)
, Psychiatric Times Published On: 2002-04-01

"An excellent resource for parents, clinicians, and teachers." (on the first edition)
, Child Psychology and Psychiatry Review Published On: 1997-01-01

"This material is specific, practical, widely applicable, and supported by both clinical and research experience. From the pediatric therapist's perspective, this book has a great deal to offer....An outstanding achievement." (on the first edition)
, Physical and Occupational Therapy in Pediatrics Published On: 1997-01-01 --This text refers to the paperback edition.
