Product Reviews

"…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." --The New England Journal of Medicine, May 31, 2007

"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

"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

"Brain Injury Medicine is an outstanding and comprehensive book that can serve as the 'bible' for each member of a team working with a TBI patient, allowing each of them to understand the reasons behind the decisions of their fellow team members. We are what our brains allow us to be. The neurorehabilitation professional needs to have a standard by which they can both understand and advise patients, family members, fellow professionals, and payors regarding TBI related issues. This book will significantly enable each professional to have access to a vast fund of knowledge." --From the Foreword by Henry H. Stonnington, MD, Medical Director, Rehabilitation Services, Memorial Hospital, Gulfport, Mississippi
