"This is a comprehensive source covering many aspects of acquired aphasia from its historical, clinical, intellectual, and psychological components... The additions of aphasia in the bilingual person and multicultural issues are incredibly important and reflect the cultural changes that have occurred since the second edition was published. A comprehensive, logically organized book, quite useful as a basic classroom aphasia text."
Praise for Third Edition, --CHOICE
"This is a comprehensive and well-organized sampling of updated topics with excellent contributors. Those who found the first edition useful will want the revision for their library, along with other clinicians and researchers who want a reliable, practical text, as well as a summary of recent advances."
Praise for Second Edition, --PROFESSOR ANDREW KERTESZ, St. Joseph's Hospital, Ontario, Canada, and Series Editor for
Foundations of Neuropsychology
"Acquired aphasia is a continuously growing field, and senior editor Martha Taylor Sarno has assembled a first-rate multidisciplinary team to update its different aspects... All chapters are written by leading experts... most of whom were pioneers in modern neuroscience... In summary, this is an essential book for anyone interested in the study of aphasias. It covers nearly all aspects of aphasia, and each chapter compiles a wealth of information that readers from different disciplines will find theoretically relevant and practically useful."
