Abstract

Today's neuropsychological practitioners have literally hundreds of assessment instruments in their toolbox, and every assessment entails decisions about which tests to use. In addition to practicality and relevance, a critical ingredient in the decision process concerns the availability of appropriate normative data on which to base clinical interpretation. The book by Mitrushina, Boone, and D'Elia goes a long way in making such valuable data readily available and in critically analyzing the current state of the art.
