I have read the book as a Speech Pathologist and Foreign language specialist; I do believe this book is the best textbook that you can buy nowadays in the area of communication disorders. The language used is clear and very well documented, this is a book that instructs you while you read it in a facinating way even if you are a native speaker from another language.This is a great book because gives you details, informations and knowledge from reports made after 2010.
