From the reviews:
"Causality of Psychological Injury: Presenting Evidence in Court is an edited volume with chapters that are not only informative but also well written. The references that I sampled are relevant, useful, and probably as current as any could be in a nonelectronic book ... . surely heightens its educational value to clinical and forensic practitioners and should shape corresponding professional thinking and praxis." (Richard W. Bloom, PsycCritiques, Vol. 52 (37), 2007)
"I was delighted to find a concise summary of why third party observers should not be allowed during the course of a forensic neuropsychological examination, touching on such seminal issues as proper test administration, norms, ethical issues as well as legal precedents prohibiting this practice. The summary was so well done. ... This information was also quite helpful in formulating the expert affidavit ... . I found this volume to be responsive to some very different dilemmas I encountered in my civil practice." (Jerid M. Fisher, Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology, December, 2007)
"Causality of Psychological Injury ... addresses issues pertinent to psychological assessment in personal injury cases in a well-organized, comprehensive, and authoritative manner. ... The writing is clear and concise, and is useful for both those who wish to expand their practice into this area of forensic psychology, as well as the more experienced forensic psychologist or psychiatrist ... . Causality of Psychological Injury fills a serious gap in the forensic psychological literature ... . I recommend it without reservation." (Eric G. Mart, Psychological Injury and Law, Vol. 1, 2008)
