Review

"In every field of scientific study, a few books achieve the regal status of helping to define that field. Without question, Neuropsychological Assessment by Muriel Lezak has achieved this honor for the discipline of clinical neuropsychology. For almost 20 years now, the first and second editions of Lezak's book have been the primary user's guide for both neophyte and seasoned neuropsychologists. The recently published third edition will proudly and adeptly carry on this tradition well into the next century....A very Readable and concise treatise on the basic principles and practices of the neuropsychological evaluation....It is hard for me to fathom the amount of work that Muriel Lezak has had to exert in the research and writing of this book. She clearly has been one of the most consistently devoted scholars in our field. We owe a great debt to her for carrying on this tradition.--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society

"A very important and central book in clinical neuropsychology. No other current book dealing with the practice of adult clinical neuropsychology has as much to offer....A truly impressive achievement."--Journal of Clinical Neuropsychology

In 1996, The Clinical Neuropsychologist journal published the results of its survey of the members of the American Board of Professional Psychology Diplomates. They were asked to propose a list of "Essential Books and Journals in North American Clinical Neuropsychology". Out of 162 titles, Lezak's Neuropsychological Assessment was ranked first!

"The most comprehensive sourcebook obtainable on standardized and neuropsychological tests."--Archives of Neurology

"Hailed by many as the most comprehensive sourcebook in the field of neuropsychological assessment....Research and clinical advances over the past several years are selectively incorporated and well covered....New information has been added that further clarifies and extends Lezak's approach....Those who read this textbook will come to rely on it because of its comprehensive topic coverage. It not only should serve as a reference, but also should be frequently referred to as a working textbook, occupying a central place on one's bookshelves."--Contemporary Psychology

"No other textbook offers to integrate such a diversity of information on such a wide range of abnormal brain conditions....A valuable contribution and a necessary element in the library of the neuropsychologist....A unique text that provides detailed discussions of assessment techniques as well as the conceptual framework, clinical issues, and neuroscience foundations which have engendered these techniques. Lezak is to be congratulated for making substantial improvements in a previously excellent text." --Journal of Personality Assessment

"Encompasses both theoretical and practical concerns in an eminently readable style punctuated by clinical anecdotes and case histories...a reliable compass for the aspiring clinician, a guide that at once teaches and also directs the reader to other pertinent sources....There is no single source available today that is so comprehensive; its sheer volume also serves as a persuasive reminder of how fast this field has grown."--Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

"Remains the best single source on neuropsychological assessment!!"--Steven M. Harris, Ph.D., California Graduate Institute

"ABSOULUTELY EXCELLENT!!! The new chapters on batteries for certain syndrome and testing for functional complaints are jewels. Long awaited and well worth the wait."--Clinical Psychology

"Lezak's third edition is clearly the most comprehensive, scholary and remarkable text in the field of clinical neuropsychology. It is well written and unquestionably will remain the most outstanding sourcebook for this generation....For any future, as well as past, students who may ask me questions I know little or nothing about, I can now promptly answer, 'I don't know. But look it up in Lezak's third edition.'"--International Journal of Neuroscience

Format: Hardcover
Neuropsychological assessment provides an invaluable resource for anyone interested in assessment. Lezak has provided innumerable references as well as current information about instruments and their neuropsychological applications. As a graduate student and in everyday practice, I have found this book to be constantly on my desk. I highly recommend this book to anyone in the field of assessment.

This is a fantastic reference book. I can't count how many times I have opened it. HOWEVER, there is a new edition coming out in June 2004, so the interested yet frugal buyer might want to hold off for a few months

Format: Hardcover
this book is the seminal work in the field, in my opinion. the book is very comprehensive and well-organized, and you don't have to be a neuropsychologist to understand or use it. it is a great reference for therapists and patients alike who are looking for an increased understanding of brain function and behavior. of course, it is also an excellent resource on conducting neuropsychological testing and can help practitioners of all sorts make a more educated guess regarding the need for assessment/referral.

Even though Lezak is a bench mark in the field, it's latest edition is from 2012. The kindle edition here is from 1995... In a rapidly changing field, with new research in neuroimaging, Kindle readers deserve better.

The cover is a little loose. I am going to have to glue the actual book to the binding soon so it doesn't fall apart. Other than that, it is great.
