For the clinical practitioner, Lezak and her co-authors provide a succinct yet comprehensive primer on the myriad aspects of human behavior, the rationale underlying deficit measurement, and neuropsychological examination procedures and interpretation. They successfully introduce a brief and "necessarily superficial" account of neuroanatomy and neuropathology, directing readers to more exhaustive reviews of each. "Imaging is not enough," a quote by Mortimer Mishkin, frames this discussion and serves as a recurring touchstone throughout the book. Indeed, through careful interrogation of skills and deficits within an individual patient, which Lezak exemplifies through numerous detailed case presentations, one may glean information about brain functioning that "even the most sensitive laboratory analyses" fail to spot. Indeed, the neuropsychologist is a detective, of sorts, objectively linking bits of information together from the patient’s history, medical record, imaging data, and behavioral presentation to form a coherent narrative leading to a diagnosis, treatment recommendations, and answers to research or forensic inquiries.
