"Brilliant clarity....Will be welcomed by clinicians....Pediatricians, developmental neurobiologists, developmental and clinical psychologists, special educators, and naturally neuropsychologists all have much to gain from a consideration of its contents....This is an important text; it is authoritatively and exceptionally clearly written, and well-integrated with key facts. It should serve as a standard text book in courses on developmental clinical neuropsychology, exceptional children, special education, and pediatrics for years to come. Highly recommended." --Book Reviews in the Neurosciences
"Truly impressive. It summarizes some 1600 references from very diverse fields and includes many goldmines of little-known material for the specialist."--Canadian Journal of Behavioural Science
"Rich in information, covers a wide range of topics and provides a good neurological, pediatric, and pathological background for the neuropsychologist reader....A very useful addition to a virtually nonexistent literature." --Brain
"This book should be on every shelf of every clinical psychologist interested in childhood neurological conditions and their behavioral manifestations....This is an extremely readable book, with excellent illustrations of key concepts and data, excellent typography, and a nice, non-condescending level of readability."--Perceptual and Motor Skills
"This book addresses many issues relevant to those seeking a better understanding of developmental neuropsychology....Reading this book will help the [psychology] student master the vocabulary of child neuropsychology and the highlighted text makes sure that essential terminology is not overlooked....This book fills an important niche in the library of clinical and research child neuropsychologists....This book will be taken off the shelf frequently, and considered necessary reading by those for whom it was intended."--Child Neuropsychology
