"There is a wealth of information in this one volume which has relevance for neuropsychological scientists and practitioners alike. The book should be required reading for neuropsychologists and neuropsychology trainees. It should also be read by other medical and rehabilitation professionals so that they might gain insights into the art and science of rehabilitating patients with higher cerebral deficits. This book will help the field of clinical neuropsychology to remain a scientific enterprise while perhaps developing more of a humanistic emphasis." -- Robert Heilbronner, The Clinical Neuropsychologist, 2000, Vol 14/1 "...an excellent, clear and informative book. Each chapter builds another layer of knowledge, contributing to the whole. Summaries and conclusions at the end of each chapter act as a useful 'back' reference"--ritish Journal of Neurosurgery2001
