Does anyone know of any books that are less geared towards how to manage adhd and more geared towards the science behind adhd (i.e. recent discoveries, competing theories, etc)?

I would recommend Attention Deficit Disorder: The Unfocused Mind in Children and Adults by Thomas Brown who runs the ADHD center at Yale Univeristy. John Ratey's book Shadow Syndromes also has a good section explaining the brain chemistry involved with ADHD (as well as other disorders).

I also have a good link to Barkley's discussion of ADHD on line:

I agree with both of Scattered's choices (I have both of those books and Thomas Brown's book is one of my favorites) and a more recent book is ADHD in Adults: What the Science Says by Russell Barkley and Kevin Murphy. I will say that it is very dry reading at times. A lot of study results, statistics, etc.
