Review quote

Just as the corpus callosum bridges the left and right hemispheres, Dr. Egolf bridges with supreme skill the different fields of communication study, multiple aspects of the communication universe, and the neurological correlates and behavioral manifestations of verbal and non-verbal behavior. He identifies implications for understanding social manipulation/persuasion, the challenges associated with different Whorfian world views, and communication problems associated with brain changes. A true tour de force. -- Arlene Kasprisin, Chief, Audiology/Speech Pathology, Veterans Administration Palo Alto Health Care Systemshow more
