Authoritative, clear, empathic, structured, and evidence based, the second edition of Your Defiant Child surpasses the first, which is no easy feat. A 'must read' for parents worried about a child's oppositional, aggressive, or defiant behavior.--Stephen P. Hinshaw, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley

Dr. Barkley is a leader in the field who provides families with proven strategies for dealing with very challenging problems. The entire book reflects his research, experience, and wisdom. The book is informed by feedback from the many parents who have benefited from this approach, and includes practical examples and pointers for putting the techniques into action.--Charles E. Cunningham, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, McMaster University, Canada
