I am the husband of a traumatic brain injury survivor. I bought this book for my wife to read to help her become more functional and also for me so I could understand her and help her better. This review is going to be a combination of opinions from both my wife and myself after reading the book. My wife felt that the beginning of the book wasted time going over things that are common sense. Things like eat well. Get adequate sleep. Take breaks. Know your limits and stick to them. Say no. She felt that these were things a higher functioning person with a TBI pretty much already knows and stated that it would have been better if the first third of the book were utilized to give more tips and clues that maybe weren't common sense. Despite the slow start the remaining 2/3 of the book was full of information that the higher functioning TBI patient can use to increase functionality! She said that it was a perspective changing experience to read it. She also felt that it validated her concerns and feelings regarding her injury. That in itself is an invaluable benefit of the book. To read something that tells you what you are going through is what others are going through too and that there are things that can be done to help decrease the stress and the frustration of everyday life! It was reassuring to her. Neuro typical individuals take these every day tasks for grated. They come naturally. We don't expend extra energy trying to complete them. My wife read the book in chunks due to her visual disturbances and the book is set up in such a way that she could do that. I read the book in one sitting. Regardless of who is reading it you get something great out of it. After I read the book I felt like I finally began to understand what my wife goes through on a daily basis. It helped me see life through her eyes better and this is what helped me discover new ways to be helpful to her. This has strengthened our bond as a couple and made things easier on her. Family members and partners of those that are injured often feel helpless to change anything. It's an emotionally awful feeling. I now have some tools to help me get past that feeling and try to be helpful (but not so much that it prevents her from doing for herself where she can). It isn't often that you can read a book and say "that changed my life". That's what it did for both of us. And most of all, it gave both of us hope that with time and some hard work that things can improve. It's helped my wife accept her limitations. Increased her self esteem. Taught me how to help her the way she needs help. Thank you Cheryle Sullivan for sharing your experience with the world. This book is helping so many people as a result.

This product was not obtained through a promotion. I paid full price for this item.

Many people do not understand the wide spectrum of results from brain injury...from the severe and most obvious to those who live day to day with moderate disabilities and their consequences. Many of the survival techniques in this book are directed to those who suffer from the subtle changes that are a disaster to the sufferer but hardly noticed by those surrounding them. Dr. Sullivan speaks to those of us who can function--just not as well as most of the population. She extends a helping hand to those of us who need her--those of us who keep our moderate symptoms a secret but still need help. It would also be a great tool kit for those suffering "normal" memory loss in the aging process. My sincere thanks for this survival kit.

My husband suffered multiple traumatic brain injuries while deployed in both Iraq & Afghanistan. This last deployment was the worse and he is being medically retired. I read this book to him and he said that it put his condition into words tgat he could not because he can never find the words. I passed it on to his OT and neurologist at the Camp LeJeune TBI Clinic and I left a few copies in the waiting (they quickly disappeared). The clinic now uses the book as a reference and it is recommended that the staff read it to better understand the patients. This book also helped me to understand what my husband is dealing with and made me more patients. It is a wonderful book if you really want to understand TBI.

I very much appreciated this book. I began to read it to see if it might have some ideas for a client of mine who has brain injury impairments. I was hooked when I found that it was written by an MD who both has and treats folks with TBI (traumatic brain injury). But my client and I continued to be launched into it's organized, clearly expressed ideas: it is so easy to read (early high school and up) and yet idea-provoking and empowering, propelling folks with TBI toward self-care actions and awareness. This might just be a 'must' for those of us working with folks with TBI, whether you're a professional - doctor, nurse, visiting aide, counselor, therapist, or family or friend. I am proud to have it on my shelf.

I would have liked to have seen more on coping with the emotional impact and changes of TBI on both the patient and those around them, as well as the medical tools and medications now being developed. Maybe the next book the author writes?

In sum, I strongly recommend the pennies for the book, and still turn to it again and again to get the concrete, practical and compassionate ideas it offers.

I wish I would have read this before I purchased it. While the author means well, it was really not at all what I expected especially from a doctor. I too do not need help micro managing,organizing common sense things. If my functioning was nearly vegative then I may have found it useful. And perhaps the best part was reference resources in the back. Sorry it was to elementary and redundantly repeating things of just basic common sense information, basic dietary habits and simplistic things that anyone who has raised a kid knows how to do i.e. leave with snacks ect.. Even after my accident I would have not found it useful and when I did get to a part that I was really looking for a pearl of wisdom she scantly addressed that issue which ? I cannot even remember what it was now. Disappointed.

Before I had to quit work and ICU was my specialty. As a nurse with a head injury, I am finding comfort and hope with this book. It isn’t written as a text book but the information is profoundly educational with lots of great ideas

Was kind of a boring read. I did find 2 helpful hints from it, but not worth purchasing IMO. One was organize your clothes in your closet and drawers by season and color so you save time searching for stuff. The other was to buy a tall chair for the kitchen so you can sit while cooking if standing is painful.
