'This is an excellent review of the neuropsychology of ADHD. It will be a "must read" text for students, and researchers.' - Joseph Sergeant, PhD, Department of Clinical Neuropsychology, Free University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
'Few books directly address the causes of ADHD in anything more than cursory detail, and fewer still are well grounded in contemporary scientific findings. Nigg's much-needed book fills this void beautifully. The book offers as complete a picture of the likely causes of ADHD as current science permits, while rendering this very technical and complex literature into an easily understandable, no-nonsense form. Scientists working on ADHD will find this book very useful and informative. Clinicians will find a state-of-the-art summation of the causes of ADHD and a framework for explaining related issues and controversies to patients and families. Everyone can learn something about ADHD from this thoughtfully crafted and thoroughly documented book.' - Russell A. Barkley, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, SUNY Upstate Medical University
