Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1339. Rodney L. Lowman responds to Charles C. Healy's reply (see record 2006-06467-078) to Lowman's comments (see record 2006-06467-077) on Healy's review (see record 2006-06470-022) of Lowman's book, The Clinical Practice of Career Assessment: Interests, Abilities, and Personality by Rodney L. Lowman (see record 1991-97777-000). Lowman contends that if it is inappropriate to “overstate the precision of test results,” it is equally inappropriate to overstate the alleged virtue of the results of self-evaluation, particularly so in the absence of compelling literature supporting what Healy accurately describes as a belief. What is bothersome in this context is the repeated discussion of a reviewer's own particular agenda, rather like criticizing a travel book on Paris for its inadequate treatment of the monuments of Rome.
