Parenting Myself: Recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury
By Earlene Ahlquist Chadbourne
Price: 13.45
paperback; 2009

Synopsis
Parenting Myself: Recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury by Earlene Ahlquist Chadbourne. $14.95 On August 14, 1990, Earlene Ahlquist Chadbourne went for a casual bicycle ride on a rural road in Saco, Maine. Six days later she woke up in a hospital unable to identify her husband as her husband and incapable of performing many of the skills she had mastered in her former life. All four quadrants of her brain had been injured. Thus began Chadbourne's remarkable journey to regain memory and lost skills. Based on the extensive journals the author kept during the recovery process, Parenting Myself: Recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury is the story of that journey. For anyone whose sense of identity is woven into what they can do, forgetting long-held skills is much like losing one's self. Parenting Myself is the story of skills and a life lost and regained.

Passage to Nirvana
By Lee Carlson
Price: 17.95
paperback; 2010

Synopsis
On a beautiful spring day in 2002, Lee Carlson's life was transformed forever when he was hit by a careless, speeding driver. Father, husband, writer, son—all that was about to change. Several days later he woke up in a hospital with a new identity: Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor. Unfortunately he knew all about Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI. Just months before, his mother had fallen down a flight of basement stairs, crushing her brain and leaving her unable to walk, speak or feed herself. Passage to Nirvana tells the story of one person's descent into the hell of losing everything: family, home, health, even the ability to think—and the slow climb back to a normal life. Told in a unique creative style brought on by the author's brain injury, combining short poems and essays in an interwoven, exuberant narrative, Passage to Nirvana recounts one person’s struggle and ultimate joy at building a new life. The story takes the reader through Intensive Care Units, doctors’ offices and a profusion of therapy centers, eventually winding its way to sunlit oceans, quiet Zen meditation halls, white beaches, azure skies and a sailboat named Nirvana. Passage to Nirvana is a memoir, a treasury of Zen teachings and a sailor’s yarn all rolled into one. Passage to Nirvana is an illustrative tale about finding a path to happiness after a traumatic life event, a book that will teach you about the Poetry of Living.

Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury: New Frontiers in Clinical and Translational Research
By Vicki Anderson
Price: 79.20
hardcover; 2010

Synopsis
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability in children and adolescents around the world and represents a global public health issue.

These disabilities, if left untreated, continue into adulthood with consequent economic and societal costs.

This will be essential reading for neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and pediatricians.

By V. S. Ramachandran, Sandra Blakeslee
Price: 11.20
Hardcover; 1998

In these unsettling tales from a neuroscientist every bit as quirky as the more famous Oliver Sacks, Ramachandran sets out his beliefs that no matter how bizarre the case, empirical, strikingly simple testing can illuminate the ways brain circuitry establishes "self." In a chatty, nearly avuncular style, he (along with his coauthor, a New York Times science writer) snatches territory from philosophers on how we think we know what we know.

Principles of Neuropsychological Rehabilitation
By George P. Prigatano
Price: 55.00
Hardcover; 1999

Synopsis
Without guiding principles clinicians can easily get lost in the maze of problems that a brain-damaged patient presents. This book underlines the importance of patients subjective experience of brain disease or injury, and the frustration and confusion they undergo. It shows that the symptom picture is a mixture of premorbid cognitive and personal characteristics with the neuropsychological changes directly associated with brain pathology. By closely observing the patients behavior the clinician can teach him or her about the direct and indirect effects of brain damage. The book provides guidelines both for the remediation of higher cerebral disturbances and the management of patients interpersonal problems. It presents a new perspective on disorders of self-awareness and recovery as well as deterioration phenomena after brain injury. It will be an invaluable resource for psychologists, neurologists, and psychiatrists involved in neuropsychological rehabilitation.
