"The book will be most useful to researchers in psychology and psychiatry who wish to use psychometric measures with patients, but it will also be useful to trainees and training directors who need to review the literature on the assessment of Asian Americans as well as to graduate students learning about multicultural issues in assessment. ...useful for understanding how measures that were developed for Western patients need to be adapted for use with Asian Americans... I enjoyed Asian American Mental Health very much, as the overall tone is to explain the research that has already been conducted on many topics, to explore the limitations of this research, and to suggest directions for further research."
