Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 959–960. Reviews the book, Evaluation of Human Service Programs edited by C. Clifford Attkisson, William A. Hargreaves, Mardi J. Horowitz, and James E. Sorensen (1978). Clinicians, administrators, and students of health services program management and evaluation should find this a serviceable reference text. The material is well-organized, central themes run continuously through the text, important points are frequently highlighted, much practical information and advice are offered, editors have assured readability, and reference lists at the end of each chapter are important sources of additional material in journals not ordinarily available or of interest to the practicing clinician. The information throughout the book is useful and its presentation sufficiently basic that teachers in graduate administration and clinical fields should be able to use the book as the basis upon which to build various courses.
