With close to fifty chapters by some of the most prominent clinical neuropsychologists, the Textbook of Clinical Neuropsychology sets a new standard in the field in its scope, breadth, and scholarship. Unlike most other books in neuropsychology, the Textbook is organized primarily around syndromes, disorders, and related clinical phenomena. Written for the clinician at all levels of training, from the beginner to the journeyman, the Textbook presents contemporary clinical neuropsychology in a comprehensive volume. Chapters are rich with reviews of the literature and clinical case material spanning a range from pediatric to adult and geriatric disorders. Chapter authors are among the most respected in their field, leaders of American Neuropsychology, known for their scholarship and professional leadership. Rarely have so many distinguished members of one discipline been in one volume. This is essential reading for students of neuropsychology, and all others preparing for careers in the field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In sum: This ‘‘must have’’ text for neuropsychologists and their students is such a basic and comprehensive resource that it will not go out of date soon, even in this rapidly expanding field. Moreover, it includes so much information relevant for neurologists, pediatricians, speech pathologists, health psychologists, and neurorehabilitation specialists that they and their students will welcome it too. As an added bonus, it is truly good value for the publisher’s price." - Muriel D. Lezak, in The Clinical Neuropsychologist

"Should be required reading for everyone who is studying and practicing clinical neuropsychology. ... I found it both validating and instructive - validating, in terms of confirming what I already know about various neuropsychological disorders; instructive, by teaching me new things about our field, the brain, and neuropsychological features associated with the multitude of medical/psychiatric conditions that we have become so skilled at empirically measuring. Furthermore, clinicians and neuroscientists who desire to share information with a medical colleague or hospital administrator about the importance of clinical neuropsychological services have a useful reference to support their position(s)." - Robert L. Heilbronner, Chicago Neuropsychology Group, in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology
