5-0 out of 5 stars A useful and concise resource.
This pocket handbook is both useful and concise. It contains a wealth of information for the beginning neuropsychologist or advanced student of neuropsychology. I find it to be an excellent training tool for practicum students and interns in the field of neuropsychology.

There have two editions of this handbook, and I have found both to be up to date and of clinical and scientific relevance. I would look forward to the authors continuing to keep it in step with new developments in this field through subsequent editions.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not for the pocket
This is a well-written neuropsychology assessment textbook that fits into a tiny format with small type that I can barely read (especially as I have grown older).It is not a "pocket guide".There is now so much content that the binding is about 3in thick.I don't have a pocket it fits into.This is a shame since it is one of the better assessment guides.The authors either have to go with an outline oriented pocket guide, like many I see in other medical areas, or simply publish the content as a regular book. I prefer the latter because I try to teach assessment from this guide and the authors would presumably have the book space to present more information and illustrations.This is probably the best assessment guide around.Lezak's Neuropsych Assessment is now upwards of 10 lbs and covers too much material in neurological illness and neuroanatomy.These areas are covered better in other books.We need a guide like this one that is a bit longer and published in a conventional format.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clinical Neuropsychology: A Pocket Handbook For Assessment
This is the second edition that I have owned.I have found it to be essential on a dialy basis in my work as a rehabilitation neuropsychologist.Even the most seasoned professional will find the handbook to be invaluable in their clinical practice.

Product Description

Bryan Kolb and Ian Whishaw’s Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology was the first text to bring a comprehensive introduction to contemporary human neuropsychology to the undergraduate classroom.  It gave students access to an extraordinary amount of cutting-edge research and made it coherent, relevant and understandable—with a presentation that reflected the authors’ superb communication and teaching skills.
That text returns in extensively updated new edition that keeps pace with the latest research while maintaining its trademark clarity and student-friendliness. And with its enhanced full-color art program, new case studies, and new companion Web site, the Sixth Edition provides both the most up-to-date understanding of the field and the most effective ways to teach and learn it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Neuro Book
This book has a way of practically presenting information to help you integrate the facts with other concepts related to the nervous system and brain.The authors go into enough depth and are concise and to the point, you will not find yourself constantly embarking on another dreaded long boring chapter.Chapters are 20-30 pages long, but are enough to keep you interested.In the beginning of each chapter there are cases that are poignant to the chapter.Good book, check it out.

4-0 out of 5 stars Neuropsych student
The book is good at expaining things and very detailed. The test bank that goes with the instructor copy needs to be edited. There are errors in some of the questions and some of the answers have more than one correct answer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book!
I like this book, but i still found another material to supplement some detail it doesn't cover and those are what I need.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent discussion on the relation between Brain and Behaviour
This book is an excellent reference on neuropsychology. I am a graduate student in neuroscience and I was pleasantly surprised to note that this book was very thorough in its discussion of different topics. My research concerns aspects of activity in the temporal lobe and the authors have discussed some of the cutting edge literature.This book is definitely a cut above the normal neuroscience textbooks.

The authors have clearly taken the time to go through the literature and pick out interesting papers and placed them in a quick and readable manner. I would recommend this book to any student of systems neuroscience for a good introduction to the fascinating aspects of brain function. In fact I would go as far as saying that this book is an idealcompanion to the now dated bible of neuroscience (Kandel, Schwartz and Jessel).

Product Description

In the recent literature, the most influential case study books in neuropsychology are in the adult realm. Pediatric neuropsychology is a rapidly developing field with increasingly greater influence in the assessment, diagnosis, early identification, and treatment of childhood illnesses. This book will provide the first centralized, comprehensive resource for case studies in pediatric neuropsychology. Not only will this supply a valuable compilation for the growing numbers of professionals in this field, but will also serve as an innovative and appealing resource for therapists, teachers, and others interested in child development.

This book will be structured in such a way that readers can easily access individual cases of interest, as well as related areas of dysfunction. Section breakdowns will be provided in order to highlight the combined focus of case presentations in acquired neuropsychological dysfunction as well as developmental disorders. Each section will begin with an introductory chapter, highlighting the salient feature of the concept and providing brief, up to date reviews of the current research and theories. Within each global section, individual case studies will serve as stand-alone chapters. Contributing authors will be provided extensive guidance and coaching with regards to the standard format and information to be included in each chapter.

The first section of this book will present cases involving neurological disorders. The intention of this section is to provide not only “classic” examples of neurological dysfunction in children, but also to provide interesting cases of unique or remarkable presentations. The second section will present an accumulation of cases representing both common and progressive conceptualizations of developmental disabilities. Section three has been designed to highlight cases which often present complex issues to neuropsychologists. The case examples in this section will highlight the use of alternative treatments, pathologies that are often a source of inquiry, and situations that lack the more rigorous scientific data often utilized in other diagnostic procedures. Additionally, this section may include chapters on common differential diagnosis dilemmas in clinical practice. Often multifaceted and even contradictory evidence can arise during evaluations, resulting in complex or problematic situations for the clinician. Such examples are difficult, by their nature, to forecast, but rather would be added during the book’s development, as they occur.

Product Description
A comprehensive guide to the practice of school neuropsychology

It is an exciting time to specialize in school neuropsychology, with countless theoretically and psychometrically sound assessment instruments available for practitioners to use in their evaluations of children with special needs. Yet the field faces the challenges of establishing evidence-based linkages between assessment and interventions and of broadening its approaches to culturally diverse populations.

Edited by a leading expert in school neuropsychology, Best Practices in School Neuropsychology: Guidelines for Effective Practice, Assessment, and Evidence-Based Intervention addresses these challenges and their solutions and provides learning specialists and school psychologists with clear coverage and vital information on this burgeoning area of practice within school psychology.

This insightful reference features comprehensive discussion of:

  • Current school neuropsychological assessment and intervention models

  • Best practices in assessing cognitive processes

  • An overview of what neuroscience offers to the practice of school neuropsychology

  • How school neuropsychology fits within a Response to Intervention (RTI) model

  • The rationale for the importance of school psychologists' collaboration with parents, educators, and other professionals to maximize services to children

  • Clinical applications of school neuropsychology with special populations, academic disabilities, processing deficits, and medical disorders

  • Unique challenges in working with culturally diverse populations

Featuring contributions from internationally renowned school psychologists, neuropsychologists, clinicians, and academics, Best Practices in School Neuropsychology is the first book of its kind to present best practices and evidence-informed guidelines for the assessment and intervention of children with learning disabilities, as well as other issues practitioners working with children encounter in school settings. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Resource for School Psychologists Interested in School Neuropsychology
Best Practices in School Neuropsychology is a well-written guidebook for school psychologists who believe that an important goal of education is to provide experiences that result in maximum possible learning for individual students and who wish to pursue a brain-based and cognitive route to practice.This book is of particular importance when considering the education of learners with diverse neurobiological systems who arrive at school with great variations in their readiness to succeed academically.The field of school neuropsychology offers guidance to school psychologists for both assessing these individuals and assisting teachers to remediate student challenges and teach to learners' strengths.

Importantly, in the foreword by Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, the reader is reminded of the importance of neuroscientific findings in the area of reading. Specifically, that the brain has a greater degree of plasticity than once thought and that through educational interventions we can achieve long-term positive reading outcomes. Later, Fletcher-Janzen continues `Executive functions, for example, are critical to reading comprehension.' Today when psychologists examine executive functions we can also see how the child's attention and memory work. Exploring these and other cognitive functions can assist school psychologists to guide other educators in order to differentiate instruction.

The editor implies that as the 1990s, the so called `Decade of the Brain,' fade into the past and each decade brings more excitement and information about human potential, it seems that school psychologists interested in the brain and cognitive connections have a meaningful part to play both in research and practice. School neuropsychologists can bring important knowledge about cognitive processes to the discussion of brain function and student achievement to inform research as well as practice in schools.

This book is organized broadly around three topics: 1) Professional issues in school neuropsychology, 2) Practice issues in school neuropsychology, and 3) Clinical applications in school neuropsychology. Editor, Daniel Miller, has provided a book that contains current and key information for school psychologists who may be interested in obtaining further education in the field, or those who may want to read to enhance their understanding of the brain and cognition, for example in areas such as RTI (Response to Intervention) and assessment of children with various learning challenges including academic disabilities, processing deficits, and medical disorders. Lastly, it should be mentioned that also included is `the rationale for the importance of school psychologists' collaboration with parents, educators and other professionals' in the community and `unique challenges in working with culturally diverse populations.'

This is one of the best books on neuropsych that I have seen.It first breaks down the anatomy of the brain, then looks at both issues related to abnormalities, and later experimental studies on "normal" brains.It is useful both for those new to the field and those with advanced psych or bio training.

Product Description

While neuropsychological testing can accurately detect cognitive deficits in persons with brain injury, the ability to reliably predict how these individuals will function in everyday life has remained elusive. This authoritative volume brings together well-known experts to present recent advances in the neuropsychological assessment of key real-world capacities: the ability to live independently, work, manage medications, and drive a car. For each of these domains, contributors describe cutting-edge tests, procedures, and interpretive strategies and examine salient theoretical and methodological issues. Chapters also review approaches for evaluating specific populations, including older adults and patients with traumatic brain injury, depression, dementia, schizophrenia, and other neurological and psychiatric disorders.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough and well-researched
As the title states, this is "A Practitioner's Handbook" and an extremely useful one for the practicing School Psychologist or anyone involved withor interested in furthering their knowledge of School and Clinical Neuropsychology.

Likely one of the best School Neuropsychology resources to surface, I particularly found the Case Studies as well as the practical approach to disorders typically found in the schools (written language, reading, ADHD) useful in my own practice.The chapter entitled Linking Assessment to Intervention is tantamount to today's changing dynamic in the field and gives School Psychologists interested in Neuropsychology a solid conceptualization of appropriate service delivery in which the psychologist can intervene to assess as opposed to simply running everyday psychoeducational reports with figures nobody understands.The authors guide the practitioner to use effective pre-referral intervention programs to offset the tremendous amount of referrals seen in the schools today.

This is a well-researched and thorough handbook that has accomplished all the important groundwork to help guide School Neuropsychology into the future.I highly recommended it as a useful reference for any researchers and clinicians working with children and adolescents.

Product Description
Casebook of Clinical Neuropsychology features actual clinical neuropsychological cases drawn from leading experts' files. Each chapter represents a different case completed by a different expert. Cases cover the lifespan from child, to adult, to geriatric, and the types of cases will represent a broad spectrum of prototypical cases of well-known and well-documented disorders as well as some rarer disorders.Chapter authors were specifically chosen for their expertise with particular disorders.When a practitioner is going to see a child or an adult with "X" problem, they can turn to the "case" and find up to date critical information to help them understand the issues related to the diagnosis, a brief synopsis of the literature, the patient's symptom presentation, the evaluation including neuropsychological test results and other results from consultants, along with treatments and recommendations.

Clinical cases represent a long-established tradition as a teaching vehicle in the clinical sciences, most prominently in medicine and psychology. Case studies provide the student with actual clinical material - data in the form of observations of the patient, examination/test data, relevant history, and related test results - all of which must be integrated into a diagnostic conclusion and ultimately provide the patient with appropriate recommendations. Critical to this educational/heuristic process is the opportunity for the reader to view the thought processes of the clinician that resulted in the conclusions and recommendations offered. With the science of the disorder as the foundation of this process, readers learn how the integration of multiple sources of data furthers critical thinking skills. ... Read more

Fractured Minds introduces the reader to clinical neuropsychology through vivid case descriptions of adults who have suffered brain damage.At one level, this is a book about the courage, humor, and determination to triumph over illness and disability that many "ordinary people" demonstrate when coping with the extraordinary stress of a brain disorder.At another level, it is a well-referenced and up-to-date textbook that provides a holistic view of the practice of clinical neuropsychology. Included are reader-friendly descriptions and explanations of a wide range of neurological disorders and neuroscientific concepts.Two introductory chapters are followed by 17 chapters that each focus on a specific disorder and include research, clinical assessment, rehabilitation, and a detailed case study. Disorders range across the full spectrum from common ones such as traumatic brain injury and dementia, to rare disorder such as autotopagnosia.Each of the 16 chapters retained from the first edition has been revised to reflect current research and clinical advances.Three new chapters on multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease incorporate discussion of important current topics such as genetically-transmitted diseases, genetic counseling, gene transplantation, functional neurosurgery, and the complex ethical issues that go hand-in-hand with these new techniques.This informative and engaging book will be of interest to students of clinical psychology, neuropsychology, and neurology, health professionals who work with neurological patients, neurological patients and their families, and lay readers who are simply fascinated by the mind and brain. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting and very informative
For several years, I have used this book for an undergraduate class I teach on Neuropsychology. The chapters, which each focus on a distinct type of brain damage or disorder, are well written and a relatively easy read. They also do an excellent job of covering the science of what causes each type of damage and why the damage impacts behavior the way that it does. My students seem to really enjoy each chapter and Ogden's discussion of her patients stimulate a great deal of discussion in class. I find Ogden's coverage to be more comprehensive and detailed than Oliver Sacks but she is certainly no less interesting to read.

Ms. Ogden's writing has a touch of Oliver Sacks-like quality.Not only does she describe each patient's clinical assessment in terms of scores on neuropsychological testing batteries, but she also describes the processesby which the patients cope with their medical problems and how they affecttheir lives.The patients are seen as human beings overcomingdifficulties, rather than anonymous cases.A great book for thoseinterested in clinical neuropsychology.This book was also be very usefulas a text book, as it describes medically what's happening to each patientas well as how it affects them behaviorally on neuropsychological testingand socially in their everyday lives. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description

Within neuropsychology, localization refers to the relationship between the anatomical structures of the brain and their corresponding psychological or behavioral function.There has long been considerable debate over localization.How widespread is it?Are some functions more localized than others?By the mid-20th century, a formidable amount of evidence seemed to strongly support the "modularity hypothesis" that psychological functions such as language and memory reside in specific neuroanatomical areas.More recently, neuroimaging studies seem to suggest a more holisitc view--that psychological functions are distributed and dynamically organized across multiple brain regions.

This bookby two senior figures in clinical neuropsychology sets out to reconcile these two approaches, arguing that newer imaging techniques must be used in conjunction with, rather than replace, traditional neuropsychology approaches such interviewing, testing, and autopsy exams.Only by triangulating these various approaches can neuropsychologists begin to understand the complex relationship between brain structure and mental function that is exhibited across the spectrum of neurological disorders.The book's "big picture" perspective on a long running debate will usefully counterbalance current research that emphasizes imaging studies to the exclusion of other useful techniques. ...

This progressive and accessible text teaches brain function in a clear and interesting manner by providing the most recent studies and research available in this ever-developing field. Applying the underlying thesis that all interactions in daily life, whether adaptive or maladaptive, can be explained neuropsychologically, the authors emphasize five specific ideas: human neuropsychology-both experimental and clinical, integration of theory and research, coverage of the relationship between neuroscience and behavioral function, real-life examples, and the presentation of didactic aids. Integrating these themes with the most up-to-date research provides all readers-whether or not they have had previous exposure to the field-with the most current and accessible text available. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good overview of PTSD research
A good contribution to the burgeoning field of PTSD and its effects upon other bodily functions.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very useful addition to the literature
Neuropsychology of PTSD is a very useful and comprehensive review of the literature on this important subject. Each chapter presents a very comprehensive coverage of different aspects of the condition. My only criticism is that, in a subject in which developments are very fast moving, particularly in the neurophysiology area, it cannot be said to be exactly 'cutting edge'. The sequencing of the human genome has seen enormous development since the beginning of the century and most of the references might be considered rather 'old'. For example there is little on the McEwen allostatic load model.
This being said it is nevertheless an important book and anyone interested in the biological and underpinning neuropsychological basis of the condition will find much here to expand their knowledge. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
The purpose of this text is to provide an overview of basic business principles and how they can be used to enhance the stability and fiscal responsibility of neuropsychological practice.The principles discussed are are defined and information is provided to guide practical application of the concepts. The book is designed to benefit professionals at varying levels of practice regardless of their work setting, but focuses primarily on the issues related to neuropsychological practice.

Graduate school catalogs and training program brochures reveal a broad array of educational opportunities designed to prepare future professionals for independent practice in neuropsychology.However, little is offered to prepare neuropsychologists for the business realities that await them in the workplace.The expectation that they will simply see patients and do quality clinical work is often in conflict with institutional goals of making money so that the doors can remain open.The result can be a cataclysmic "crash" when altruistic ideals meet capitalistic needs.The concepts of "cash is king" and "no margin, no mission" are foreign to most neuropsychologists until our own fiscal bottom line is affected.

The Business of Neuropsychology also contains an overview of business "basics," such as budget and fiscal tracking, strategies for communicating withstakeholders in the business, front and back office flow and processes, billing, coding, marketing, referral relationship development, and staff growth and development.

The Business of Neuropsychology is part of the Oxford AACN Workshop series. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An indispensable guide to managing a practice

I will begin by stating my conclusion:If you are a practicing psychologist or mental health worker, you should buy this book...period.

I went into psychology because I wanted to help people. While I was in graduate school, and during my internship, I learned about the assessment and treatment of patients.Unfortunately, after I graduated and started my practice, I realized that I knew nothing at all about how to run a business:Nothing in my formal training prepared me for the actual process of managing a practice. In a relatively brief 225 pages, Dr. Barisa's book does just that. In addition to helping the clinician think broadly in terms of business concepts, it also provides a wealth of highly detailed information.

The title of the book "The Business of Neuropsychology", is a really a misnomer, and more of an artifact that it was sponsored by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology.The book itself generally applies to anybody who practices in the mental health field.Dr. Barisa's book begins with examining basic principles of business, and shows how they can be applied to clinical practice.Dr. Barisa goes on to discuss how to identify the services that you will offer to patients, and then how to think about them from a business perspective. He addresses matters of record-keeping guidelines and regulations, and discusses the complexities of billing, coding, and documentation required for insurance reimbursement.He also discusses how to market your services, and how to make a living so that you can continue to offer these services to others.

Whether you are a neuropsychologist, clinical psychologist, or other mental health professional, and you have your own practice, you will find this book to be indispensable. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Review of Military Neuropsychology
This is a thorough discussion of many of the most challenging issues in the care of military service members who have known or subjectively reported central nervous system involvement associated with a disturbance of various brain-behavior relationships.The reader will come to appreciate the unique ethical and psychosocial aspects of evaluating service members, the complexities of distinguishing between mild traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder, and the respective pathways to return to active duty v. reintegration in civilian community.Considerable attention is also paid to the processes involved with decision making under extreme circumstances.This book will likely be most useful for those with some basic knowledge of general clinical psychology, including an appreciation that various forms of trauma can affect mental functioning, but should be accessible without a thorough background in either military psychology or neuropsychology.Yet, for those who do have the latter experience, the depth of the volume will be satisfactory to even the most "seasoned" practitioner / scientists.I recommend it strongly for all those who are involved in the assessment and treatment of military service members.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended.
Military Neuropsychology covers a broad range of topics dealing with the field of brain-behavior relationships as it applies to military environments.This text is a timely contribution and should be of interest to health care professionals in the military, law enforcement personnel, or those that are interested in learning more about the cognitive aspects related to different demands associated with military operations.Topics range from fitness for duty to ethical issues in the field.The most relevant and interesting topics are, in my opinion, in the area of blast injury and traumatic brain injury.Three chapters are dedicated to this expanding area, including acute battlefield assessment of concussions and head injuries.This is the most comprehensive coverage of this area to date and an important resource for those who work in those environments, treat those who have been exposed to head injuries in the field, or those that manage their care.Another area of interest is the repatriation of POW's, which is an important and sensitive topic.Finally, two cutting-edge chapters on cognitive decision-making and cognitive sequelae of sustained operations provide insight on the decision making paradigm in extreme environments.Chapters on ADHD, HIV, and PTSD round out this text.Overall, this is a very interesting book and provides the most advanced coverage in this growing area.The text is edited, but it has an overall structure that makes it easy to read and it feels well sequenced and organized.Highly recommended. ...

Product Description
A finalist for The Guardian First Book Award, Into the Silent Land is a stunning look into how the human brain constructs a "self," or the essence of who we are as individuals. A neuropsychologist with twenty-five years' experience and a runner-up for the prestigious Wellcome Trust Science Prize, Paul Broks writes with a doctor's precision and clarity in a series of narratives about the fascinating world of the neurologically impaired, delving not only into the inner lives of his patients, but into a deeper understanding of how we define who we are. Fusing classic cases of neuropsychology with the author's own case studies, personal vignettes, philosophical debate, and thought-provoking riffs and meditations on the nature of neurological impairments and dysfunctions, Into the Silent Land is an illuminating study of neuroscience, and an extraordinary look into the unknown world of the self. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Random magazine articles by English Neurophychologist.
The back of my copy has this blurb from the San Fran Chronicle: "In the interlocking essays that blend brilliantly recounted episodes with questioning, sometimes troubling internal meditiations..."

Interlocking? It didn't seem connected to me. Yeah, they were written by the same guy, and generally they were about cases he dealt as a neuropsychologist, but there was no flow to the book, no sequence, no organization, no architecture, etc. Each chapter/section (whatever) reads like a standalone magazine or web article - often glib, straining for effect in hopes of getting a better page count.

Even within chapters things didn't connect. For example, the first article 'Different Lives' has the author recounting five people with different brain injuries. A couple of them had been in accidents and now seem to have lost the filter that makes people not say insulting things to those around them, one guy was autistic, one young woman seems to have lost the amagdyla based fast action response facility and this makes her a hazard when driving, and one older woman has epilepsy and is often in and out of consciousness and doesn't recall most of one of her daughters wedding cause she was having episodes during it. The author wrote a couple pages or so on each case. Why they were all in the one article? They all had brain problems, that's it.

Also, I found most of the articles to be contrived. One was set up as a Science Fiction story and the author uses the concept of teleportation to talk about two theories of self - Ego theory and Bundle theory. In another Broks pretends to talk to a brain in a jar named Harry. In another a student brings up the idea of doing research on body modification and the author goes home and discusses the subject with his wife:

".. What might a little body art do for me? I tell my wife I am thinking of having my penis tattooed.
'What do you have in mind?'
'Woverhampton Wanderers.'
She looks at me. 'Or maybe just Wolves.'"

The chapter ends with that, a penis joke. Ugh.

Broks is apparently an accomplished neuropsychologist, he's the 'Senior Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant at Derriford Hospital, Plymouth', according to the back of the book. From the interior of the book you can tell he's seen alot of interesting cases. As a writer though - he tries too hard (we get it Paul, you're clever), he can't not make lame jokes and asides and be flippant, he can't discuss subjects directly without adding some tiresome artifice, etc.

The subject deserves a better book than this.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very quirky
I very much enjoyed this book.It has a very quirky approach to explaining neuroscience and consciousness.Very entertaining and informative.The description of the brain as a piece of grey tissue is quite disturbing and thought provoking.

3-0 out of 5 stars An ok book, but lacks coherency
The first half of this book is really confusing. The reader will have a hard time trying to figure out what this book is about. Is it about philosophy? Neurology? Or is it a journal? Well, the book is a little of everything and this poses a great problem. It is a very short book and so I don't think that all the above can be included in it without having a negative effect on the book's clarity, which was the case here. Some of the cases mentioned in the book are really interesting, but it was disappointing to see that not much attention was paid to them because the author always seems to drift into a separate world. The book was saved by the last fifty pages where most of the ideas start falling together to build a more coherent picture. One of the best parts of the book was the extra readings section because the author mentions many books on the subject. I just hope that the books that he mentions are a little more focused than this book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
Just a quick review:

I am interested in neuropsychology and was very excited to read this book. Unfortunately the author spent more time talking about himself and his personal philosophy than with neuropsychology or patients.

Because I did not purchase this to learn about the bizarre thoughts that this author has, I completed the book wishing he had kept his ridiculously shallow philosophy to himself and perhaps talked about something useful and interesting; like applied cognitive neuroscience.

In conclusion, although I can definitely say that I would not recommend this book to a friend - but in an effort to not be completely negative I will say that there were a few interesting patient stories. So if you are looking for a book about the philosophical question of what is the "self" than maybe you would be interested in reading Into The Silent Land; but do not buy this book expecting a book which helps the reader understand neurological conditions. . . do not expect Oliver Sacks.

5-0 out of 5 stars A shot of Sacks, perhaps, but with a stiff twist of philosophy
Other reviewers have noted it's unfair to compare Broks to Sachs, and I agree.

That said, per the "philosophy" angle he brings, I will compare him to somebody else - Dan Dennett.

Some of the essays in this book remind me of some of Dennett's early stuff, like in the book co-written and co-edited with Douglas Hofstadter, "The Mind's I."

Broks' tales in here are less about the patient, in part being a clinical psychologist, and more along the line of philosophical Gedankenexperimenten, or, to use Dennett's phrase, "intuition pumps."

That said, Broks is far more a poet than Dennett, and may just surpass Sacks in that regard too.

I note that this won a Guardian "First Book" award.

Please, Mr. Broks, let's follow up with a second and more. ... Read more
