I was so impressed with the caliber of writing in this remarkable collection of stories, both by the TBI survivors and their family members or caregivers. It is a difficult subject to treat but the outcomes described in the stories gave hope and comfort to readers like myself. I am proud to have my own story "Sometimes the Little Fish Wins" included in the book.

Life hasn't always been easy, given my impaired memory resulting from my traumatic brain injury. But I've been fortunate enough to find ways to compensate for this lack over the years, even writing a book "HEALING THROUGH HUMOR: CHANGE YOUR FOCUS, CHANGE YOUR LIFE!" to share my own struggles (everything from a traumatic brain injury from a head-on auto accident to breast cancer) and the remedies I found to assist my coping.

A helpful way for TBI survivors to begin their own path to recovery is to read the stories shared in Chicken Soup for the Soul's "Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries." This book goes way beyond the message of "you're not alone." Who know the possibilities they'll discover for themselves along the way?

I was so glad to find this book. My husband suffered a traumatic brain injury four and half years ago. I cried along with several of the stories, but it is a healing kind of crying. These are powerful stories and reading them has helped my husband and I to remember not to give up, and to keep trying every single day for recovery.

Being a TBI survivor, I wish I had had this book 3 years ago. I have been thru hell and back, but this book validates my feelings and struggles and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK not only to the TBI patient but the family members as well. It opens up a whole new and TRUEST world about BRAIN INJURY.

We waited for this one to be distributed - family member with TBI. I pick and choose those that are appropriate and upbeat for my TBI survivor - as it is SOOOO important to keep all things positive in recovery.

Each recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury has, not only its unique path and timetable, but also many, many facets. There are different and specific needs at each level of recovery and this book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries, serves up a heaping bowl full of positive evidence for the searching survivor.

At some point, most survivors reach a plateau where their immediate circle of support and understanding can only take them so far. Unable or, perhaps, unwilling to comprehend a changing future that boasts many positive opportunities and choices, it is a place where many abandon their hope and expectation for successful recovery from TBI.

Amy Newmark and Dr. Carolyn Roy-Bornstein's collection of survivors' stories provides overwhelming evidence of hope where often none seems to linger. These people have fallen and risen again, many to greater heights than previously imagined.

Hats off to the wonderful people willing to share their stories and share their light. Congratulations to Ms. Newmark and Dr. Roy-Bornstein for crafting a vessel on which the light can travel to even the darkest corners of need.

Kara Swanson, author of the book, "I'll Carry the Fork! Recovering a Life After Brain Injury"

As someone recovering from a TBI, I was hoping to connect to these stories and think 'yeah, I've been there' but most of them barely seemed to scratch the surface of what I've gone through. I was so excited to get this book in the mail, but yet I have had to force myself to keep reading. Not what I had hoped for.
