Since the publication of the second edition in 1995, interest in this area has exploded within the fields of neuropsychology and forensic psychology. This is a highly regarded reference work that comprehensively reviews the effects of toxic industrial substances, alcohol, and abused drugs on brain and behavior. It has achieved a niche within neuropsychology that no one has attempted to emulate, and there is little or no direct competition. The book has been used extensively within the fields of neuropsychology, neurology, and psychiatry, and has also achieved cross-field popularity in legal circles; it is a standard reference source for attorneys who litigate so-called toxic torts (see review attached). The third edition will update and extend each of the 10 major chapters, including expansion of toxic metal, solvent, prescription drug, recreational/"club" drug, and alcohol exposure, as well as the issue of chemical sensitivity and psychosomatic disorders.
