Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Over 325,000 Americans annually suffer mild head trauma from automobile accidents, assaults, falls, sports injuries, etc. With a diagnosis of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), the individual will be told to rest for a few days or weeks, and, with luck, that may be the end of it. Unfortunately, many of those affected suffer ongoing, debilitating symptomsmigraines, depression, seizures, etc.for months or even years. Symptoms are unpredictable and are difficult to diagnose because there is no single test to detect MTBI and postconcussive syndrome (PCS). Stoler, a practicing psychologist who has herself experienced mild head injury, and Hill, a psychologist and writer, have compiled a comprehensive manual explaining what is involved in the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of brain-injured people. Presenting short case studies, they discuss the difficult diagnostic context of head trauma and offer practical suggestions for coping with physical and emotional repercussions. Especially valuable for patient education libraries.James Swanton, Harlem Hosp., New York

    Coping with Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

    This book is a must for anyone involved in a car accident, fall, etc. It answers all the
    questions you may have about concussion and the prolonged effects. Easy reading and
    a book you will refer to on a regular basis.

    Excellent Resource for MTBI suffers

    It's not a bad life, it's just so very different from the one I had before my injury. Diane Stoler's book offered me comfort and security when there was none to be found elsewhere. I was not alone. A must read for all TBI patients and their families. It tells those who love you what you can not say yourself. Thank you!
