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!

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.

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.

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.

This is an important book for clinicians and neuropsychologists. There has been a great deal of controversy regarding individuals who experience mTBI and then have persistent cognitive symptoms, sometimes for years. Dr. McCrea does an excellent job of reviewing the pertinent literature, with helpful summaries at the end of each chapter. He goes on to lay out a model of PCS as a neuropsychological disorder with multiple sources of causation including pre-existing psychopathology, somatization, lack of social support and contextual issues including litigation. This volume is concise and provides valuable suggestions for the management of PCS.

My wife actually went to see this guy due to a brain injury from a car accident. The negative reviews of this book are consistent with his patient care. McCrea's agenda doesn't seem to be about patient care or actually caring about something besides himself. Instead, McCrea seems to care more about his legacy and staying in the loop of people that he deems relevant. Exceptionalism=awful!

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.
