BOOK REPORT: MMPI, MMPI-2, & MMPI-A in Court: A Practical Guide for Expert Witnesses and Attorneys, by Kenneth S. Pope, James N. Butcher, Joyce Seelen


MMPI, MMPI-2, & MMPI-A in Court: A Practical Guide for Expert Witnesses and Attorneys (hereafter "MMPI: A Practical Guide") is a book that should be in the library of any trial attorney who deals with cases involving psychiatric and psychological disorders.

The utility of “MMPI: A Practical Guide” is that it allows attorneys to understand and interpret the results of the MMPI studies, and therefore evaluate defense experts' conclusions about the results of these tests. It is virtually impossible to challenge a psychologist or psychiatrist who utilizes an MMPI test as the basis for his opinion without a basic understanding of what the results from these tests mean.
