"[Witt and Conroy] provide perhaps the most thoughtful, concise, and practical guide available for assessing relevant mental conditions, volitional control, and recidivism risk...They have made an important contribution toward consensus building in this field. Their book, a well-organized guide for best practices, successfully adds theory-driven and empirically supported structure to SVP evaluation while alerting clinicians to the limits of our expertise. It elucidates what we know now, and perhaps more important, what we do not know now. Any student, academician, clinician, or lawyer who has an interest or stake in the accurate assessment of sexual offenders will benefit from reading it."--PsycCritiques
