    Finally, a practical clinical resource

    I supervise a large stroke and brain injury rehabilitation unit. Our team has always struggled with managing the area of cognition/perception. We just received the book 3 weeks ago and it has already become a 'hit' with our team. We find it to have nice blend of practical applications and evidence based research. We think it is wonderful.
