Editorial Reviews

"Although it might seem that there has been a plethora of books on brain injury rehabilitation in recent years, making it difficult to come up with new thinking in this area, this latest book covers some topics that are not routinely included in the other books on this topic, thus making it auseful addition to one's personal collection."--Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation
