“The book is well written, and its introductory-level presentations are appropriate to the handbook genre in their attempts to convey and illustrate basic concepts and principles....Most useful to the time-pressed helping professional who seeks to gain a quick and clear overview of common and rare syndromes, their genetic and neuropathological bases, and the implications of current scientific knowledge for the appropriate diagnosis and treatment of individuals with these disorders.”


“A beautifully crafted volume spanning a wide range of neurological and genetic disorders in adults, and representing the state of the science on these disorders. Giving special attention to the psychological and social impact of these disorders, the editors and authors have concisely presented information that will be maximally useful to both clinicians and researchers. This book will surely become the standard on this subject against which others will be measured.”

—Russell A. Barkley, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, State University of New York Upstate Medical University at Syracuse

“A 'must read' for clinicians and researchers alike. This straightforward, well-written volume offers breadth and depth on important topics that affect learning and behavior—such as adult learning disabilities, ADHD, autistic spectrum disorders, and anxiety disorders—as well as disorders with broader effects, including fragile X, Rett syndrome, and Prader-Willi syndrome. The Handbook provides a comprehensive, authoritative discussion of the neurological underpinnings of developmental and genetic disorders, and is an excellent companion to the Handbook of Neurodevelopmental and Genetic Disorders in Children.”

—Jack A. Naglieri, PhD, Department of Psychology, George Mason University

“This book serves as an excellent guide for the clinical neuropsychologist. The editors provide a ready reference for practitioners in need of up-to-date knowledge on a host of disorders often seen in practice. Covering a broad spectrum of disorders, each well-organized chapter is thorough yet concise. Highly recommended.”
