Review quote

"The strength of the book lies in the chapters relating to cognitive-perceptual functions, most of which provide sufficient (but not overwhelming) background material on the function, highly detailed descriptions of evaluation methods, and moderately thorough reviews of treatment interventions. The best discussions relate to evaluation and assessment measures, each of which is a highly detailed set of guidelines that clinicians can readily follow in their patient care activities. This is a useful book for practicing clinicians and students in rehabilitation therapy disciplines, providing the appropriate theoretical and scientific support for certain clinical activities, but mostly providing extensive, detailed, and easy-to-follow guidelines on clinical assessment techniques for patients with cognitive, perceptual, and visual dysfunction. There are several new clinical techniques discussed in this edition that were not included in prior version." -- Elliot J. Roth MD, "Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Doody Enterprises, Inc."
