    Outstanding and Helpful

    Thank you for your book and the unique, practical and real information it contains. My daughter, Belle, who is now 15, suffered a severe closed concussion on 12/2/07. It resulted in a 'mild' Traumatic Brain Injury. Only recently have we been able to 'embrace' what is going on. I am no longer a blink away from crying. :) Your book has made me smile and even laugh as we encounter this new life. The best effect of your book is that your compassion, appreciation and sincere understanding is evident in every sentence and somehow, those words on each page have made me not feel so alone. For that I am forever grateful. Thank you, Belle One and Belle Two's mom

    An Essential Guide To Healthy Living

    You¿re having a pretty typical day: work is progressing as usual, you make casual conversation here and there, you begin to look forward to your favorite TV shows later that evening... All of a sudden, you feel a sharp, flashing sensation, you become dizzy & disoriented, and the next thing you know you¿re waking up in a hospital bed surrounded by friends & family. Over the next few days, doctors and nurses check on your regularly, assuring you that you¿re improving nicely, that you¿ll be going home soon, and that you¿re going to be just fine... But you¿re not fine at all. Soon you begin having difficulty reading simple sentences & phrases. Key facts and information ¿ such as your husband¿s birthday or your anniversary ¿ escape your memory. Cooking a meal for yourself becomes nearly impossible. You even have trouble seeing things in your peripheral vision... Welcome to the world of over 5 million people in the United States with a long-term or lifelong need for help related to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). From stroke victims to war veterans to athletes recovering from multiple concussions, TBI survivors often look as normal as their healthy counterparts, but their lives are anything but, and in Brain Injury Survivor¿s Guide Larry & Beth Jameson provide detailed insight into exactly what makes their daily experiences such a challenge. Make no mistake, though: their informative self-help guide does not serve as a de facto pity party designed to remind TBI survivors of just how discouraged they should feel about their conditions. Rather, as survivors themselves, the Jamesons do a commendable job of infusing hope, optimism, and courage into the hearts and minds of the numerous individuals whose lives have been thusly affected. With the constant reminder that their lives will never be what they once were, the Jamesons successfully provide TBI survivors with helpful tips and useful advice regarding the adoption of new daily routines, which will greatly assist in the survivors¿ acclimation to their new quality of life. The Jamesons even include a detailed list of professional organizations & associations that support TBI survivors with helpful programs and other useful opportunities. Coupled with their comprehensive suggestions for memory improvement and overcoming cognitive & behavioral difficulties, Brain Injury Survivor¿s Guide is a well-balanced, invaluable resource sure to benefit dozens ¿ if not thousands ¿ of individuals who may feel that they have nowhere to turn. Essential reading for those affected by TBI, as well as those who know someone that is or may be.

    A reviewer

    Brain Injury Survivor's Guide shows how Beth Jameson used strategies to compensate for her brain in deficit areas of memory, cognitive skills and behavioral skills. Over two dozen strategies provide step-by-step guidance. There is a lot of information for family members as well. Anyone affected by brain injury, including professionals who work with this segment of the population, would not go wrong with this book.
