Joseph Palombo's Nonverbal Learning Disabilities: A Clinical Perspective (039-3704785 $37.50) covers a disorder which impairs a person's ability to perceive and understand nonverbal signs. This lack of perception affects everything from behavior patterns and social interactions to personality and affects individuals across all realms of life. Current neurobehavioral research draws together the latest findings on NLD in a book that serves as both an overview of the condition and as a guide to therapies and development. F. Scott Kraly's Brain Science And Psychological Disorders: Therapy, Psychotropic Drugs, And The Brain (0393704653, $23.95) explains how brain chemistry affects behavior, explaining the complex possibilities of neurobiology and drug therapies to explore what happens in the brain of one suffering a debilitating psychological disorder. While it all sounds like readers would need a degree to understand the basics, the beauty of Brain Science And Psychological Disorders is that no advanced knowledge is needed, allowing general- interest audiences a survey of the advantages and disadvantages of drug vs. talk therapies in light of neurological realities.
