"the book is a good source on information on play assessments" (European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Vol.10, No.4, 2002)
"This revised edition is a hefty tome, rather like an encyclopedia. Yet many of the chapters are written in an engaging, accessible style. I see it primarily as a book of reference, to be consulted by clinicians and researchers. It is very much a book of its time, responding to the urgent need for integrated research and practice, and to the growing interest in the early intervention movement." (European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Spring 2002)
"...a valuable contribution...as a reference text it is potentially extremely valuable..." (Jnl of Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry, Vol 6(2))
