Industry Reviews

For those who...frequently find themselves pulling the second edition from their shelf, the third edition will be a welcome reference companion. A must-have for scholars and graduate students who are serious about studying fluency disorders. The editors have once again assembled a varied and knowledgeable group of authors who write well and provide good coverage of...current issues in the assessment and treatment of stuttering across the lifespan. It would be an excellent choice as a supplemental text for a graduate class in fluency disorders and is a volume that fluency specialists and scholards will most certainly want in their professional library.--Journal of Fluency Disorders

"Many authors from the discipline have contributed their expertise to this text via easily digestible chapters. In this text, the perception of stuttering from a narrow, shortsighted and unidimensional perspective has been replaced with a broad, farsighted, and multidimensional perspective. Each chapter is well-supported with evidence-based references substantiating its particular thesis. This is an excellent teaching tool and reference for the beginning and intermediate student or clinician...The reading is easy, sufficiently detailed, and very well-documented. This text clearly illustrates the complex, dynamic, multifaceted characteristics of stuttering and related fluency disorders."--Journal of Fluency Disorders
