"In the present work...anyone who has followed clinical child assessment will immediately recognize such stellar authors as Mark Durant, Sheila Eyberg, Alan Gross, Scott Mizes, Mark Rapport, Laura Schreibman, and Edward Shapiro. Twinkling among these notables are a number of up-and-coming scholars...This mix creates an authoritative, up-to-date, and technically sound constellation of chapters...Getting their hands on a convenient measuring instrument brings joy to trainees and graduate student clinicians, and as I have a kind heart, I will be happy to refer them to this handbook. It can be useful to have ready access to suitable instruments, and the 147 described throughout this book could no doubt come in handy to many clinicians at one time or another...The rich array of new possibilities described in this handbook might be a bit overwhelming to the practicing clinicians for whom it is designed, but if they have a conceptual be many useful benefits to their practice and to their child clients." --Reviewed by Ian M. Evans for PsycCRITIQUES October 18, 2006 Vol. 51 (42), Article 12
