: Visibility of impulse-control disorders (ICDs) has never been greater than it is today, both in the field of psychiatry and in popular culture. Changes in both society and technology have contributed to the importance of conceptualizing, assessing, and treating impulse-control disorders (ICDs). The ground-breaking Clinical Manual of Impulse-Control Disorders
focuses on all of the different ICDs as a group. Beginning with the conceptualization and classification of ICDs, including the phenomenology, assessment, and classification of impulsivity as a core symptom domain that cuts across and drives the expression of these disorders, 25 recognized experts provide cutting-edge, concise, and practical information about intermittent explosive disorder, childhood conduct disorder and the antisocial spectrum, self-injurious behavior, sexual compulsions, binge eating, trichotillomania, kleptomania, compulsive shopping, pyromania, pathological gambling, and problematic Internet use. The remarkable Clinical Manual of Impulse-Control Disorders
sheds light on the complex world of ICDs. As such, it will be welcomed not only by researchers and clinicians but also by individuals and family members coping with these disorders.
