This is an excellent book on a complex topic, and I can think of no one better qualified than Hellige to cover as thoroughly and objectively as he has the many aspects of hemispheric asymmetry. All the important issues are dealt with, clearly exposed, and soundly analyzed… The book certainly provides an exhaustive and timely review of research in cerebral lateralization.—Justine Sergent, McGill University

This book represents an excellent treatment and review of data and theories concerning the behavioral and anatomic asymmetries associated with the left and right cerebral hemispheres in both humans and nonhumans. It is especially timely given the dramatic increase in the scope of laterality issues that has occurred over the last decade… The book is seamless, in terms of both the breadth of the literature surveyed and his assessment of critical issues.—Stephen Christman, University of Toledo
