This text concentrates on how to conduct the neuropsychological evaluation of a brain damaged patient, eg someone who has been in a road accident. It starts from the premise that the most effective management, treatment and rehabilitation of these patients will occur against a background of neuropsychological evaluation and knowledge. Its intention is to bridge the clinical gap which exists between the textbooks of neuropsychology and the manuals detailing how to treat and rehabilitate brain damaged patients. It includes follow-up discussions of case studies in the first edition, so that readers can see how the prognosis originally given compares with the reality. In addition the final chapter "Roles for the Neuropsychologist" has been expanded and this edition is about ten per cent longer than the first edition.
