This is an excellent and much needed book. Understanding the nature of a person with aphasia's impairment is an important component of the clinical management of aphasia. It is essential that the nature of impairment is interpreted within a theoretical framework and yet until now there has been no accessible literature to assist in this process - this volume fills the void. It provides the vital link between theory, research and practice, for both assessment and treatment. It will be essential reading for students and support evidence based clinical practice. - Lyndsey Nickels, Australian Research Council-QEII Research Fellow, Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science (MACCS), Macquarie University, Sydney

All things considered, this is an excellent book. it makes cognitive neuropsychological studies more accessible and easier to understand, especially for clinicians and graduate students. It provides an excellent teaching resource.... This is not simply a collection of therapy studies. The authors have given the studies a context, and rooted them in a principled and learnable approach to treating the problem of aphasia. - Charlotte C. Mitchum, University of Maryland, in Aphasiology
