The information was very interesting to a person who has had many years of speech therapy including Precision Fluency Shaping Speech Therapy. I was not sure exactly who the target audience was for the book. The author did not layout any specific therapy guidelines. There was more of a general outline of the procedures the author went through in developing the therapy over the last 40 years. There was a lot of technical jargon for the lay reader. It could have been more reader friendly for the non researcher.
