In their preface, the authors state that their book is "... designed as an introduction to neuroanatomy, neurology, and neuropsychology for the student and practicing [speech-language pathologist] clinician interested in neurogenic communication disorders.... It is hoped that this book will serve as a primary textbook for an introductory course in the neurology of speech and language, or as a supplementary source in... standard courses [in the speech-language pathology field]." The authors "... hope it will be helpful to students without medical training..... This book is aimed at advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students as well as the working speech-language pathologist." I believe it succeeds.

For the working physician and/or neurology specialist, the treatment is less than might be wished for in comparison with, eg, Darby's excellent compendium, which can serve as a more thorough guide and reference to communicative disorders in medical practice (Darby JK Jr. Speech Evaluation in Medicine.
