Dr. Barkley is one of the foremost experts on ADHD.  His website is full of useful information and links.  I particularly recommend his book Taking Charge of ADHD, Third Edition: The Complete, Authoritative Guide for Parents.  Dr. Barkley's free ADHD Lectures are also an excellent source of information.
