If I Only Had a Brain Injury is a page-turner and a must-read. It is a testimony of the power of believing in oneself, a true survival story.”
The ‘Oz’ analogy is something I had never thought of and it is perfect. … The book will be a great resource. … I especially like that you offer ways to deal with the emotional impact on survivors, friends and family members. Your book will be of great help to families. I see it all the time, people with TBI are looking for anything that will help, and conventional medicine can only do so much.”
—–Karen Ruppert–Nurse Manager, trauma rehabilitation unit at Harborview Medical Center
Unlike other books on healing from so-called “Medical Mysteries,” If I Only Had a Brain Injury encourages readers to chart their own inspirational journeys. The book’s structure follows The Wizard of Oz storyline (Dorothy’s journey begins with a concussion), guiding readers to a “yellow brick road through recovery.” A collection of personal examples, alternative treatments and spiritual growth exercises, this book also offers wisdom from thirteen contributors, including Robin Cohn (Vice President of New York State Brain Injury Association), Dr. William Padula (Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association), Dana Reeve, and Kay Strom.
