A fairly thorough one that introduces you to a lot of different drugs and treatments is Dr. Daniel Amen's "Healing ADD", reviewed elsewhere at this forum.

Be warned Dr. Amen is somewhat controversial in his approaches to the condition.

Amen's book includes a good comprehensive overview of the alternative therapies, diet, etc. Lots of non-controversial basics are included as well as the brain scan stuff and his own system of classifications off ADD types (which are based on co-existing conditions). It's got sort of a textbook structure.
