h of the 17 chapters elegantly weaves empirical research into discussions of the most plausible theories on topics that cover a wide array of questions... refreshingly, a great deal of conflicting literature and science is introduced, leaving the answers to future scientists and researchers to ponder and to investigate. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this book is the way in which the data are presented. The assembled authors lead the reader through the basic and clinical research, cite the outcomes of the experiments already conducted, and finally, point to future areas of research that seem most likely to provide important discoveries... Texts like this one are an invaluable addition to a researcher's library..."
