“This is an excellent book written by experts in the field. It covers deception in various populations, along with both psychological and medical illnesses. The fourth edition is justified because of the new chapters on neuropsychology and cultural assessments, along with revisions in the remaining chapters. *****!”

Doody's Review Service

“This excellent and standard reference [occupies] a crucial space on many forensic psychiatrists' and psychologists' bookshelves....Useful in clinical practice, especially in institutions that serve forensic or correctional populations.”

Journal of Psychiatric Practice (on the third edition)

“This is a rich volume that provides information and assessment strategies for patients who may be clinical challenges and enigmas. It is a lucid, well-written and helpful volume.”

International Journal of Social Psychiatry (on the third edition)

“Akin to the eminence of the late Hervey Cleckley or Robert Hare as authorities on the topic of psychopathy, it is not unreasonable to accord Professor Richard Rogers analogous status as one of the world's leading scholars on the assessment of malingering....Professor Rogers's text and the wealth of knowledge he has compiled from an august collection of contributors should be viewed as a mandatory item for all forensic mental health practitioners.”

International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology (on the third edition)

“With the addition of the neuropsychological perspective, this fourth edition includes everything a legal or clinical practitioner needs to know about the state of the art in deception detection. The assembled authors are impressive, and Rogers and Bender are acknowledged leaders in the field. Do not go into court in a case involving behavioral science issues without consulting this book.”

—Christopher Slobogin, JD, LLM, Milton Underwood Professor of Law, Vanderbilt University Law School

“The premier work on malingering and deception just got better! The fourth edition of this classic book provides up-to-date, insightful coverage of one of the most important topics in forensic mental health assessment. Rogers and Bender have assembled a world-class cast of contributors with broad research and clinical expertise. The fourth edition includes new chapters on cutting-edge topics, including neuropsychological models of feigned cognitive deficits, psychopathy, child custody, personnel selection, and more. This book is both scholarly and practical, which makes it attractive to students and experienced professionals alike. This is much more than a 'bookshelf' book—it is essential, indispensable reading for those who are or will be involved in conducting forensic mental health assessments.”

—David DeMatteo, JD, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology and Thomas R. Kline School of Law, Drexel University

“Clinicians and forensic practitioners will welcome the fourth edition of this book, particularly in the face of growing concern about the liability that may attend unwarranted use of the ‘malingering’ label. The stellar cast of contributors explores the terrain sensitively and with scholarly incisiveness, assuring the book's appeal to forensic psychology and psychiatry trainees.”

—Ezra E. H. Griffith, MD, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and African American Studies, Yale School of Medicine
