Head injury can quickly thrust families into a situation filled with fear, confusion, and uncertainty. They are forced to make critical decisions at a time of severe emotional stress, and many times are unable to effectively communicate with medical personnel.

This book makes a great educational tool. Its easy reading style and clear illustrations help patients and their families cope with the changes that are about to occur in their lives. It also helps facilitate communication between the family and the health care team.

Interviews with families who suddenly found themselves dealing with this tragedy add a personal dimension to the book. Their insight offers readers additional tips for coping, as well as an understanding of what they can expect on the road to rehabilitation.
