This is a thorough and readable book designed for the emerging clinician. The author speaks from the point of view of a person who stutters as well as one well read in the research surrounding cause, nature and treatment of stuttering.

I would be interested to hear from families of and people who stutter to see if this book is an appropriate, in-depth, resource for them as well.

This book is a bit dry, boring, redundant. However, it's worth the value if you're going into the field. I'd recommend it to rent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great info, bad images February 24, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The content itself in this book is very interesting and helpful in learning about how to assess and treat stuttering. However, my only complaint Is that all of the figures in the book were not printed out well. All of the images are fuzzy and texxt is blurry so it makes it difficult to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book... January 12, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am using this book for one of my second year undergrad Speech Pathology classes and I am very pleased. This book is extremely easy to read yet it contains a lot of detail. It puts you in the shoes of a "stutterer" or "person who stutters", and it also puts you in the shoes of a Speech Therapist. It is very relatable. This is one of the first textbooks that I actually enjoy reading, it is hard to put down. Fascinating information about the world of stuttering; its causes, affects and treatments. I just wish that more people who stuttered would see a Speech Therapist so we could gather even more information about this rare speech disorder.
