Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This multiauthored book provides a traditional but up-to-date introduction to neurologically based speech and language disorders.
Purpose: The book provides a scholarly introduction to aphasia, alexia, agraphia, and other neurological disorders of language.
Audience: This book is aimed most directly at neurologists and neurology residents; however, it can be read with value by speech pathologists, psychologists, neurosurgeons, and rehabilitation specialists.
Features: The book is succinct and well edited. Neuroimages and line drawings are of good quality and plentiful. In additional to traditional chapters on aphasia, the book is strengthened by excellent chapters on language disorders and aging, childhood aphasia, and aphasia in epilepsy. Included in the book are two excellent chapters on aphasia diagnosis and aphasia therapy.
Assessment: This is a recommended book. It provides a useful and definitive summary of our current knowledge about neurological language disorders, including aphasia. Although many of the contributors are not neurologists, because of the careful editing and organization, the book reflects primarily the view of the neurologist toward these disorders.
