The book is an interesting, current, light reference text to be read casually once and then kept nearby for its links to other materials. Dr. Stout is among the first to address explicitly the impact of managed care on psychological testing. Because, as he points out, 90 percent of psychologists are involved in testing, the title alone will sell many copies. Dr. Stout avoids any extended discussion of the many controversies over managed care curtailments and simply begins with the assumption that restricted care is the new reality. He speaks realistically about the new constraints managed care imposes and the new opportunities it presents.
