"Somatization is a clinical construct and issue whose handling will quickly reveal the sufficiency of the clinical neuropsychologist"s educational preparation. This is an important book that will help to round out the understanding of the practitioner and give valuable nuance to the clinician"s approach to this problem. Going far beyond trivial diagnostic labels, it draws from the best of the available literature to take the discussion out of the realm of test armamentarium to the proper consideration of the inner, interpersonal, and phenomenological world of the patient. It is a quality integrative treatment of a vexing problem."
