Reviews - What do customers think about A Casebook of Ethical Challenges in Neuropsychology (Studies on Neuropsychology, Development, and Cognition)?
Makes ethics juicy! Oct 16, 2007
I have always thought ethics was a dry topic. The format of using vignettes to illustrate the ethical principles being presented makes this book an easy, fun read. Each author's style is slightly different, and some are even humourous, so the tales don't become stale.
