This manual has been compiled by a clinical psychologist and speech pathologist and is intended for the use of speech pathologists in planning a program of language rehabilitation for individual aphasic patients. The manual presents a comprehensive language examination in a clear form and should be useful for recording the progress in language function. The instructions for the various test items are specific and easily followed, and much of the test material is included in the manual.

The author states that his interest is in speech therapy, and not in neurologic and neurosurgical implications of language dysfunctions; consequently, it is not a criticism of his work to point out that the examination is not entirely satisfactory for use by the clinical neurologist.
