Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Much more in depth than most books on Mild TBI. It was very helpful to our family.
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.
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!
