'All those responsible for policy development and the provision
of services for people with learning disabilities should read this
book. That will not be a difficult task given that it is only 96
pages in length and has been written with commendable clarity and
objectivity. If the points of constructive criticism made by
MacIntyre are taken on board, we might move to a position where we
have a wider range of services for people with learning
disabilities that are more imaginative and realistic.' Research,
