Reviews

"Written by internationally known experts in traumatic brain injury rehabilitation, this volume provides a comprehensive guide to assessment and treatment that emphasizes practical, real-world approaches to patient and family needs along the continuum of TBI care. With an unusual blend of scholarly reviews of the literature and practical "how-to" advice, illustrated by excellent case examples, this book will be valuable to clinicians and researchers alike." - Tessa Hart, Institute Scientist, Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute, USA "This second edition of Ponsford, Sloan and Snow's book builds beautifully on the fabulous first edition. The book is practical and pragmatic. It teaches us how to address the many and varied problems that face people with TBI and their families. The advice offered is theoretically based, informed by the evidence, but very clearly grounded in the authors' many years of experience of actually using these approaches. If you work in brain injury rehabilitation you will want to read this book." - Jonathan Evans, Professor of Applied Neuropsychology, University of Glasgow, UK "The second edition of this book is an excellent, thoroughly updated work on the various aspects of TBI. It represents a major step forward for traumatic brain injury rehabilitation in children, adolescents and adults. Moreover, the principles for the assessment and management of the various dysfunctions will serve as a model for the rehabilitation of other aetiologies of brain injury. Overall, the book can be highly recommended to everybody working in the field of rehabilitation." - Josef Zihl, Professor of Neuropsychology, University of Munich, Germany
