Reviews

"...the most comprehensive version of this classic text to date. As always, among its authors are some of the most distinguished scientist-practitioners in their respective areas. ...the changes in this edition have made it more representative of current conceptualizations of neurocognitive functioning and disorder than past editions, and it provides quality information about specific aspects of neuropsychological disorder not found elsewhere. This classic continues to deserve a prominent place on the neuropsychologist's shelf." --Applied Neuropsychology " . . . this fourth edition of a classic text is a very readable and contemporary mix of old (but updated) favourites, completely new chapters on topics also found in the previous edition, and chapters on completely new topics. In the tradition of books published by Oxford University Press, it is a beautiful book . . . I have no compunction in recommending that any serious student of clinical neuropsychology, whether new to the game or near retirement, takes out a second mortgage if necessary to purchase this book for their own shelves." --Jenni Ogden in JINS "...It is without question, the most important source for detailed descriptions of the classical syndromes."--Annals of Neurology "Without doubt, Clinical Neuropsychology continues to offer excellent summaries of the classical neuropsychological syndromes. I know of no other single source that offers the breadth and depth of coverage afforded to these topics....Clinical Neuropsychology (3rd edition) remains unequaled in providing rich yet encyclopedic descriptions of various neuropsychological syndromes. There are enough important updates and revisions in this new edition that those who already own the second edition should strongly consider adding the third edition to their bookshelves...."--ontemporary Psychology "The editors have brought together an excellent group of 34 cognitive neuroscientists...The fourth edition has been revised and expanded to reflect the gains in cognitive neuroscience since the prior edition. Old chapters have been updated, and new chapters added, including one on the pharmacotherapy of cognitive disorders and three on specifics of language processing. Those who own previous editions will want to add this new edition to their library. A well-written, comprehensive, and valuable resource for clinicians, investigators, and students in the fields of cognitive neuroscience, communication disorders, neurology, psychology, psychiatry, and rehabilitation medicine."--JAMA, 2003; 290:2333-2334 "...the most comprehensive version of this classic text to date.

Even seasoned neuropsychologists will find this text an excellent reference. It makes an outstanding textbook for graduate and post-doctoral studies in neuropsychology and for neuropsychologists preparing for board certification. It is rare to find a text that captures all of these complex syndromes in one place and in such an understandable manner.... if you don't already own the previous edition or are interested in keeping current on the latest updates, this book is, without a doubt, an essential addition to your library. I recommend this book without hesitation and can not wait to read the sixth edition when it comes out." -- Journal of the International Neuropsychology Journal
