"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
