    Barkley, a renown authority, addresses the need for loved ones to reframe their view of the classic symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity so they can take steps to manage symptoms’ impact…. Acknowledging the anguish that friends and family members experience in the potentially destructive path of the disorder is a significant contribution to the field: words of hope ring like a breath of fresh air to inform and encourage those gasping to survive the aftermath of ADHD.

    Exceptionally informed and informative, impressively and accessibly well written, When an Adult You Love Has ADHD is unreservedly recommended as a critically important addition to community and academic library collections.
