Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(4), 325–326. Reviews the book, Diagnosis and Rehabilitation in Clinical Neuropsychology by Charles J. Golden (1978). The author has produced a carefully written and well-documented text in the field of human clinical neuropsychology. Overall, it appears that he has achieved his stated goal of bringing together “the relevant research, clinical procedures, and decision-making rules used by the clinical neuropsychologist.” The book also presents a thorough display of the armamentarium of clinical procedures and tools involved in neuropsychological assessment. The chapter of case examples is interesting. However, the reviewer would prefer that more case examples had been used, but discribed throughout the text to reinforce a number of points made in earlier chapters.
