Editorial Reviews

Arrangement of this text/reference is in three parts, with a brief preface by editor Vanderploeg, a clinical neuropsychologist at the Veteran's Hospital in Tampa, Florida. Fifteen contributions explore the fundamental elements of the neuropsychological assessment process; special issues, settings, and populations; and new approaches and methodologies. The authors, all of whom are engaged in the clinical practice of neuropsychological assessment, as well as teaching and research, integrate the academic and the practical, for students as well as practitioners. Coverage does not include functional neuroanatomy, neurological testing, or neurological diseases, and prior knowledge or access to companion texts in these areas is assumed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From the Publisher
"This is a 'must have' book if you are a clinical neuropsychologist in training in North America. There is material in the book that will also be of considerable interest to a wider audience, in particular the chapters on interviewing and testing, principles of neuropsychological interoperation, report writing, and neuropsychometric issues and problems. The chapters advocating flexible versus fixed battery approaches are well worth reading by inexperienced and experienced neuropsychologists alike, irrespective of their homeland."

"...comprehensive and extremely useful for practitioners working in the area of neuropsychology....likely to be of value not only to neuropsychologists as well as forensic psychologists and expert witnesses, but students training in this area."
Medico-Legal Journal

Review of the first edition: "...a worthy addition to any clinician's (as well as researcher's) bookshelf."
The Psychological Record

Review of the first edition: "...highly recommended as a [supplement in graduate courses]....Unique among neuropsychology texts, it should actually elicit comment and debate among students."
