Review quote

Praise for the first edition: "Numerous tables of normative data not available in published test manuals are reproduced in this volume....The extensive experience of the authors as clinical neuropsychologists and supervisors of graduate students is reflected in their comments toward the end of each test entry that includes caveats on administration, interpretation, and limitations of the normative data....This book complements the reference work by Lezak and the book by Heilman and Valenstein with a minimum of redundancy....The writing style is clear, lively, and succinct, thus inviting the reader to refer frequently to this book for reference."--Archives of Neurologyshow more
