Editorial Reviews

"The brevity of the book and the consistency of the framework across all chapters facilitate rapid consultation. This will undoubtedly enhance its use and make it a favorite among professionals constricted by time limitations....The authors have provided a concise and relatively encompassingexpose of important neuropsychological functions which are often insufficiently imparted....Useful to clinical neuropsychologists, psychometrists, and researchers in the field of neuropsychological assessment and related issues."--Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience
