Editorial Reviews

Review


"The editor has gathered together many of the best and most current peer-reviewed publications on mild traumatic brain injury and compiled an excellent reference. Any well informed healthcare provider will want to pick up a copy of this book."--Doody's, a 5-star review!


"This is a very good book that describes the neurological and neuronal reasons why some clients with MTBI and PCS do not make the progress that would be expected...It provides great information about methods that can be used to understand the patient's level of consciousness, treatment integrity, and how a team approach can be utilized."--Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology


"[This book] is a jewel. It is rare in its accomplishment to so succinctly cover such an impressive amount of research...Old hands and students alike will find this book a concise and comprehensive reference text on the topic of MTBI and PCS...I wholeheartedly recommend this book to all with an interest or need."--Ty S. Callahan, Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society

I'm a military psychiatrist serving with Marines in Afghanistan. Sadly, the last few months' combat operations has resulted in a slew of mTBI cases that have been referred my way. I needed a quick review of the literature on this topic to bring me up to speed, and this book did it. A colleague of mine (also serving out here) highly recommended this text, so I bought it, and was able to quickly get through it. Wonderful chapter on the proposed mechanism of injury, explaining the fascinating neurometabolic cascade the follows a TBI (my previous understanding was limited to "diffuse axonal injury"). Great section on the natural history of TBI that has really helped me frame expectations for my patients. It's rare to find a book that, at once, exhaustively reviews the literature AND is easily-readable and clinically applicable. Bravo Zulu, Dr. McCrea!

Format: Paperback
I suspect this book egregiously downplays the impact of (some recent, and some not-so-recent) studies of postconcussion syndrome which utilize SPECT imaging. The organic origin of postconcussion syndrome symptoms and other MTBI-related long-term sequelae has been validated by the detection of perfusion abnormalities using SPECT that were otherwise imperceptible using other imaging techniques (MRI, CT). Thus, this book, in its later sections, appears to be a reckless dismissal of those individuals who suffer long-term disabilities due to CBF changes resultant from brain trauma.

I'm not inclined to agree or disagree with other reviews implying that this book was designed for or by insurance companies or attorneys, but it would be irresponsible not to state that this book likely overrepresents the increasingly marginal voice of those denying the physiological origin of the very real long-term effects MTBIs have on a rare, but significant, number of patients.

As a result, I do not advise that this book be treated as anything more than supplemental reading for professionals. In fact, for those more litigious readers, I feel that treating a book underrepresenting the realities of postconcussion syndrome as monolithic, factual, would endanger more individuals than just the sufferer of the condition.

Fabulous book! Outcome in mild traumatic brain injury has been the subject of many unfortunate myths that have actually served to harm mild TBI patients. I have seen many mild traumatic brain injury patients who came to believe that they were disabled by their injury, and and as a result were robbed of their quality of life (e.g., left jobs that they were capable of still doing and as a result suffered financial reversals, etc.). This book carefully, thoroughly, and convincingly summarizes the literature showing no longterm cognitive changes in this population. Hopefully, medical professionals will now start acccurately educating their patients as to true outcome in this condition.

As an army psychologist working with patients who have moderate to severe as well as mTBI (concussion), I find this book to be the most scientifically sound in terms of understanding brain injury, diagnosing, and making sound assessments. I recommend this book to all neuropsychologists or neurologists; and others who work with patients who suffer from or want to be evaluated for possible brain injuries(s). It is also somewhat of a quick read, which gets to the point; while at the same time citing all appropriate scientific literature.

I'm not sure who the people are that are giving this a 1-star review, but it's obvious that they know almost nothing about the TBI field. Great book to have on as a reference if you work with mildTBI in a mecical or legal setting.

Covers all the key issues related to MTBI and does so with the proper balance of research and everyday language. Very reassuring (oddly reassuring?) to me as I try to understand and cope with my MTBI and post-concussion syndrome symptoms. Take your time reading it, though, because it taxes the post-concussion brain! I read multiple chapters in one sitting 3 months post-injury (couldn't put it down) and couldn't function the rest of the day. When I finish the book, I plan to give it to my doctor.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Post Concussion Syndrome is included in the title, but there is very, very little information about it in the book. The very last section of the book discusses it, and it is not 'new' information, other than believing it is all in your head, essentially. I wanted to return it right away after seeing how little PCS was discussed.
