So, if you're sizing this up for a Kindle purchase, be forewarned: the TOC you get in the preview of the 2004 edition is radically different from the one you will receive. I have ordered a used copy of the 2004 edition.
This book, though, explains what happens when aphasia develops but at the same time induces thinking of how our brains process visual and audible signals coming from outside in lingustic way mainly through Broca's and Wernicke areas.
This book is also good for those who are learning a foreign language.
