Editorial Reviews

Review

"...A 'go-to' reference for any clinician treating individuals with brain injury... The editors have assembled a single resource for physiatrists, neurologists, psychiatrists, therapists, nurses, psychologists, and other medical specialists, as well as for legal professionals and patient advocates. A medical condition of this magnitude and scope requires the thoughtful and wide-ranging coverage this text provides. It will quickly become the authoritative desk reference sought by clinicians practicing brain injury medicine." -- Journal of the American Medical Association, May 31, 2007<br /><br /> "A much-needed and welcome addition to the brain injury medical literature... an excellent comprehensive clearinghouse for state-of-the-art knowledge in brain injury medicine today... Anyone caring for brain-injured patients would do well to obtain this book for use as a go-to reference, a teaching tool, and for assistance with the many medical and rehabilitation management issues which face this patient population and the clinicians who care for them." -- Doody's Reviews<br /><br />"Brain Injury Medicine is clearly a 'go-to' textbook that belongs on the shelves of brain injury professionals across the board-- physicians, psychologists, therapists, and treatments specialists. It contains a depth and breadth of information on the science of brain injury and the state of the art in treating individuals. The editors and chapter authors of this excellent textbook deserve to be complimented for their expertise and commitment to helping professionals expand their knowledge of brain injury treatment, research, and service delivery." --Brain Injury Professional

This is a new and much needed updated medical book with information regarding Concussion and TBI.

From the family practitioner who sees the sports concussion and up, this is a must.

I have many books on TBI (traumatic Brain Injury) including some textbooks, and this is the best. It has everything you need to know about the brain and more importantly what happens when there is damage. It doesn't cover first hand experience, it is more of a encyclopedia of brain injury. Everyone who deals with patients should have one and I highly recommend survivors and thier families have one.
