"The aim is to provide a handbook with practical, clinically useful information for the assessment and treatment of patients with TBI. The book is intended for clinical neuropsychologists, although anyone involved in neurorehabilitation may find it of interest." (Christopher J. Graver, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2016)"The aim of this book is to provide information about the latest cognitive and behavioral aspects of TBI and to guide clinicians in their response to and treatment of patients presenting with this problem. ... Although the book is clearly for neuropsychologists, it also provides adequate reading material for a variety of disciplines involved in the assessment and treatment of patients with TBI, as well as students of those disciplines."
