Summary "In this book, psychologist Shama Olfman leads a team of widely known experts who examine the astonishing rise in the diagnosis of pediatric bipolar disorder, particularly in the absence of any compelling evidence for either the validity of the criteria being used to diagnose it or the safety and effectiveness of the drugs being used to treat it."--BOOK JACKET
