"This book is an important step in bringing to a wider audience the major diagnostic and curative modalities of QEEG and EEG neurofeedback... The practicing psychologist beset by insurance carriers demanding proof of treatment efficacy should come away from reading this book with a compelling excitement. What stands out in prominent relief is that psychologists are using off-the-shelf technology to effectively treat disorders that had been considered untreatable... This volume is rich in information."
