“The book continues its legacy of high-quality, pertinent reviews of the relevant literature and immediately useful summaries for clinical practice. This is the best source of information currently available on the assessment of feigned cognitive impairment in both its comprehensiveness and usefulness. It is a must-have book for practicing neuropsychologists. *****!”

Doody’s Review Service

“Boone has delivered a single, invaluable resource for cutting-edge information about assessing feigned cognitive impairment. In the second edition of this essential resource, a dream team of contributors survey the literature in this burgeoning field. The 29 chapters provide up-to-date, in-depth coverage of the research available to guide use of PVTs and SVTs with the broad range of populations that neuropsychologists assess. The second edition of this neuropsychology classic will be of interest to graduate students, interns, and fellows, as well as seasoned investigators and clinicians.”

—Yossef S. Ben-Porath, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychological Sciences, Kent State University

“Boone's decades of clinical and forensic assessment experience, scholarly research, and test development are paying enormous dividends to the profession. With an outstanding cadre of chapter authors, Boone has brilliantly updated one of the most important volumes in forensic neuropsychology. This book is required reading for neuropsychologists new to forensic practice as well as for career professionals. It is an essential reference for those who want to conduct assessments and form opinions with a solid empirical basis. New and updated chapters provide a look in the rearview mirror at where the field has been, and a look to where we need to go in the future.”

“Boone and her colleagues are at the forefront of detecting the exaggeration of symptoms and impairments for secondary gain, a growing area in neuropsychology over the last 30 years. This expanded second edition provides the latest research findings and assessment techniques to help practitioners carefully evaluate patients to identify those with legitimate impairments. This is a valuable book for clinician-scientists who conduct forensic evaluations and/or teach graduate neuropsychological assessment courses. It furthers the discussion of unique dilemmas and continuing legal reforms related to expert testimony and evidence law.”

—Paul M. Kaufmann, JD, PhD, ABPP, Senior Attorney, University of Texas System; private practice in forensic neuropsychology, San Antonio

“The first edition of this work has been a staple reference book for clinical neuropsychologists for more than a dozen years. The second edition is not merely an update, but reflects the reconceptualization and evolution of performance validity testing across the vast corpus of scientific literature that has accumulated in neuropsychology. This comprehensive guide covers research methodology, detection of feigned responses across multiple cognitive domains, and considerations for specific clinical populations. The volume is invaluable for any clinical neuropsychologist, as well as for graduate students and trainees learning the nuances of the assessment of test validity—the bedrock of accurate test interpretation—in clinical and forensic practice.”
