While six years have passed since Ms. Nadeau published the "comprehensive guide" it's thorough, relevant coverage of the basic topics/issues in the assessment and treatment of adults with ADD compares favorably to recent works by P. Wender M.d. and T. Brown, Ph.D. Despite a growing list of titles on the bookshelf this book stands out as one of few that offers well researched and systematic reviews of basic etiologic and developmental factors. Several chapters discuss the array of differential diagnostic and treatment issues faced by men and women with ADD and/or multiple disorders. Other chapters provide thoughtful analysis and treatment guidelines for dealing with college and graduate students, while other sections offer thorough coverage of assessment issues and strategies. For those seeking a broad-based, well-researched and accessable reference for treating adults with ADD, Nadeau's "comprehensive Guide" remains one of the best.
In A Comprehensive Guide to Attention Deficit Disorder in Adults, Kathleen Nadeau put together one of the most helpful books for the professional working with clients or patients with ADD. Each chapter is written by a different specialist about a different issue. All chapters contain current information which makes it an invaluable resource for the professional working with ADD clients and patients. I highly recommend it to any professional working with ADD adults and children.
