THE CONCUSSION CRISIS brings an explosive but largely unseen epidemic out of the shadows. It puts a human face on a pressing public health crisis through poignant stories of athletes (from the peewees to the pros), soldiers, and others whose lives have been forever changed by jolts to the head and brain. Weaving their cautionary tales with a clear and accessible explanation of the advancing science and medicine, The Concussion Crisis is the definitive exploration of the invisible injury behind today’s alarming headlines. Journalists Linda Carroll and David Rosner sound an urgent wake-up call to every family and argue for changing a macho culture that refuses to treat concussion seriously as the traumatic brain injury it is.

Editorial Reviews

“Carroll and Rosner tell some utterly heartbreaking stories, but their book, ultimately, offers hope by giving readers the information and resources they need to confront a public health crisis. They show us that a concussion does not have to be a life-altering event, but it can be if it is not properly recognized, respected, and treated.” —Michael Sokolove, author of Warrior Girls: Protecting Our Daughters Against the Injury Epidemic in Women's Sports
