I've been looking for this book for the last three years, and finally found a copy in a library of one of the local universities.
This is a great book--well worth the search for it, since it is out of print, and extremely difficult to find.
As far as I know, only two books have been dedicated to the subject of cluttering, the 1964 book by Deso Weiss, and this book. This book is actually a compilation of various authors on cluttering, and is edited by Dr. St. Louis and Dr. Myers. They are also the main contributors, but it has a chapter by Dr. Daly, one by Alf Preus, and an excellent introduction by Charles Van Riper.
Pages 11-14 are actually readable in the "Look Inside This Book" section of this amazon page.
I liked this book because it gave at least four different views on cluttering. I think that it is a great follow up to Weiss's book on cluttering, and I hope that another book is written soon on this subject.
I'm a clutterer, and this helped me a lot to understand cluttering. It also spurred a lot of new thoughts about things I can do about cluttering.
I think that all Speech Language professionals should read this book. Like the title says, it's a "Clinical Perspective, so it's written to clinicians, and like I mentioned above, it is well worth searching for.
