Buyers beware: Please note: Once purchased, NOOK Books cannot be refunded. The book is excellent. The NOOK version of it is poorly delivered. The NOOK software even in my NOOK HD+ cannot display properly several sections of the book.
I have been waiting for this book since listening to George McCloskey presentation last July at the NASP Summer Conference. It is a great resource for increasing your knowledge base on Executive Functioning. Like all the essentials books it is written in a style that makes it more interesting to read as well as easy to refer back to for application.
