5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource! March 19 2000
Format:Paperback
As a mother of a 15 yr old boy who has a TBI, I've read many books about brain injury. This book is an excellent resource...describing head trauma and how different functions can be affected. It also explains how a person actually comes out of a coma in gradual stages. It addresses so many pertinent issues...I'm so glad I was able to add it to my library.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent but Outdated Resource March 16 2010
By Garry Prowe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
While this book is excellent, it is ten years old. I prefer the much newer Mindstorms: The Complete Guide for Families Living with Traumatic Brain Injury (2009). Living with Brain Injury answers most of the questions asked by those new to brain injury. It's easy to read (with one exception) and can be digested in small portions. This is important because this book should be read by families as soon as possible after an injury. When I first picked up Living with a Brain Injury a few days after my wife's accident, I found much of Chapter 1, "An Anatomy Lesson," rough going. I'm not sure any writer could explain the complex operations of the brain in a manner that is understood easily by traumatized family members. I quickly moved on to the other more accessible chapters. Chapters 2-4 describe what happens to the brain when it's injured and the types and degrees of brain injury. Chapter 5 introduces the diagnostic and predictive tools used by medical personnel. When Jessica's doctors told me she would be changed forever by her brain injury, I turned to Chapters 6-8, which describe, in lay language, the most common physical, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms suffered by survivors. Chapter 9, "How to Pick the Right Rehabilitation Hospital" lists the fifteen components every rehabilitation program should include. Chapters 10 and 11 describe the rehabilitation personnel and processes that will help your survivor recover as well as possible. Chapter 12 provides even more hope in its explanation of the amazing ability of the brain to rewire itself around damaged areas. Returning home from the hospital presents new challenges to both survivors and caregivers. The final two chapters address these issues. Throughout Living with Brain Injury, Senelick and Dougherty assure their readers that people can recover well from a brain injury, something that we all can't hear too often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something Positive in a Negative Arena May 12 2007
By Carolyn S. Cobb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
After living with and caring for my 31 year old son, who suffers from a TBI, reading this book was a positive lift. It gave me hope, new ideas to try, and support for me and the rest of my family. TBI's are terrible injuries, especially when they are as severe as my son's; having reading material at hand that is well written and filled with good information is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living with Brain Injury: A Guide for Families, Second Ed. May 5 2008
By Y. Basabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
This was an excellent book. It's easy to read and well organized. Great references for further reading and help. If your loved one recently suffered a TBI this is the book to read. It will answer alot of the questions you will have as they progress in treatment. This book will explain the medications, treatment procedures etc that your loved one may be going through. I wish I would have gotten this book from the beginning. This is an excellent book to purchase for someone as soon as possible. It will help guide you through the process and what to expect.
