    I recommend this book. It has been an invaluable resource as a student in speech language pathology. Covers the basics in a very clear and concise manner.

    Books Falling Apart!, August 6, 2008

    Hi Graduate Students,

    Isn’t it a shame that we are paying hundreds of dollars for textbooks that fall apart when you read them, well, this is one of them. I love the book itself – an excellent book in content. The producer of the physical book itself is doing a poor job of manufacturing. I did call the publisher about this issue. This seems to be a trend in graduate textbooks. Just my thoughts, we are paying too much for shabby treatment.
