I came across this book a few years back and found that it had a strong influence on how I thought about and conceptualized learning disorders. Pennington does a nice job of integrating research with case studies. The NVLD chapter especially had an effect upon how I conceptualized assessment data and presented it to parents and professionals. A good survey of the neuropsychological underpinnings of various learning disorders. The material in each chapter has been covered in greater depth in other writings, but this provides a good overview and catalyst for changing the way one thinks about learning disorders. May be a bit technical for nonprofessionals, but Pennington's writing style is generally readable.
