Reviews

@qu:"This is the first clinical textbook on Neurofeedback (NFB) to be published, and if you are a professional seriously interested in neurofeedback, we urge you to buy it immediately." @source:--MINDFITNESS.COM, An American BioTec e-mail Newsletter @qu:"This is the first clinical textbook on Neurofeedback (NFB) to be published, and if you are a professional seriously interested in neurofeedback, we urge you to buy it immediately. We are so impressed by the book that we are including its use in our seminars...That said, get the book. Some of the writing is brilliant. You will learn a lot. And if you love neurofeedback you will be in for some fascinating and fun reading." @source:--Adam Crane, Ph.D. in the JOURNAL OF NEUROTHERAPY (Fall/Winter 1999) @qu:"This book is an important step in bringing to a wider audience the major diagnostic and curative modalities of QEEG and EEG neurofeedback... The practicing psychologist beset by insurance carriers demanding proof of treatment efficacy should come away from reading this book with a compelling excitement. What stands out in prominent relief is that psychologists are using off-the-shelf technology to effectively treat disorders that had been considered untreatable... This volume is rich in information." @source:--CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY (Volume 46, Number 5, 2001)
