Editorial Reviews

"From the Foreword by Medical Director, Rehabilitation Services, Memorial Hospital, Gulfport, Mississippi" - Henry Stonnington
"...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"

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Felise S. Zollman, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This is a comprehensive collaborative textbook that addresses all aspects of brain injury medicine, from acute injury management through rehabilitation and community reintegration.
Purpose: The authors assert that the book "is designed as a comprehensive text for all clinicians dealing with the assessment, management, and rehabilitation of patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) from 'coma to community.'" To the extent that this book meets those goals, this is a much-needed and welcome addition to the brain injury medical literature and, in fact, in most respects, the primary aim is met. This book serves as an excellent comprehensive clearinghouse for state-of-the-art knowledge in brain injury medicine today.
Audience: The target audience is "clinical practitioners..., students and trainees learning about TBI, and other professionals who need to learn more about TBI and its management." The book serves its intended audience well, although, as might be expected from any large scale collaborative writing effort of this nature, there is a good deal of variability from chapter to chapter in terms of the accessibility of content. The editors themselves, all leaders in the field of brain injury medicine, authored or coauthored 11 of the 66 chapters.
Features: The book does, indeed, cover a comprehensive spectrum of subjects germane to this field. From the epidemiology of head trauma to acute medical management and rehabilitation care, to a focused discussion of those impairments typically associated with head injury (e.g., cognitive and behavioral issues, motor recovery, medicolegal issues, etc.), this book addresses the myriad of issues unique to this patient population. Most chapters are very well referenced, offering the reader a ready avenue for greater exploration of a given topic if desired. The primary shortcomings are those which could be expected from a first edition collaborative effort of this nature: some redundancy in coverage (e.g., some aspects of epidemiology) and inconsistency of writing style, making some chapters less readily accessible to the reader who is not expert in the specific topic. On the other hand, with few exceptions (such as the chapter, "Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory in the Mechanism and Treatment of TBI," which was authored by a brain injury physician without any asserted specific expertise in Chinese Medicine), the individual chapters have been written by experts in their respective fields. Taken in aggregate, this book's pluses far outweigh these relatively modest minuses.
Assessment: This is a welcome, much-needed addition to the brain injury literature. 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.
