Fluency and Its’ Bases is written by Dr. S. R. Savithri, a highly accomplished and multi award winning researcher, clinician and educator in the area of Speech sciences and Speech pathology. Stuttering is a complex speech disorder, and, to appreciate the complexities of this disorder, one must have a good understanding of fluency. In this book, Fluency and Its Bases, Dr. Savithri has done an excellent job in analyzing fluency from a multidimensional perspective. This is the first comprehensive book to analyze and summarize the body of work done on fluency both nationally (within India) and internationally. This comprehensive book on fluency and its disorders is an essential reading for students, teachers and researchers in the field of communication disorders. This book, organized into eight main chapters and a summary in chapter nine, provides a comprehensive coverage of fluency. Starting with a clear explanation of fluency and its development, the reader is then guided through various bases of fluency including relevant theories and literature. These chapters elucidate bases of fluency including anatomical and physiological, acoustic, genetic, linguistic, psychological, and prosodic bases. Readers will appreciate the history of research as well as the current state of the art research regarding the various dimensions of fluency.” -Sreedevi Aithal, PhD, MSc., MPH., M(Aud)SA, Consultant Audiologist, Adjunct lecturer- James Cook University, Adjunct lecturer – University of Queensland, Department of Audiology, Townsville University Hospital, Australia
