Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Barkley is a foremost researcher who has devoted his career to teaching and helping those with ADHD. This book brings together in one place everything that parents need to cope with daily challenges and make important decisions about their child's care. Dr. Barkley's knowledge, brilliance, and dedication shine through on every page like a beacon of hope."--Edward M. Hallowell, MD, coauthor of Driven to Distraction
 
"An invaluable, comprehensive resource. The book arms you with the most current scientific facts, including a clear explanation of executive functions and their role in ADHD. Dr. Barkley has a gift for providing practical, easy-to-understand guidance that empowers you to become an effective advocate for your child."--Chris A. Zeigler Dendy, MS, parent and author of Teaching Teens with ADD, ADHD & Executive Function Deficits

"Dr. Barkley helps parents make order out of chaos and problem-solve more effectively. That’s what I love about this book! Taking Charge treats parents respectfully and intelligently. You'll go back repeatedly--maybe even every day--to the sections on becoming an executive parent and managing life with ADHD."--Mary Fowler, parent and author of Maybe You Know My Kid

"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."

"If any professional knows about ADHD, it is Russell Barkley.... All in all, this is a splendid book."

"An excellent and readable book that will empower parents of children with ADHD."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"An excellent resource for parents, clinicians, and teachers."
