"Reading this book offers the opportunity to students and professionals alike to be exposed to rehabilitation techniques, assessment methods, and theories from specialists coming from foreign countries that would otherwise be unknown to them... We would love to see this book evolve into an international `reporter' of TBI rehabilitation and neuropsychological assessment, issued every few years. The editors of Brain Injury Treatment met and overcame the challenge of directing a true international book on TBI rehabilitation, aftercare, assessement, and theories of rehabilitation, worthy of praising. Obviously this book is a forerunner for future international publications and collaborations in the area of TBI." - PsycCRITIQUES, reviewed by Marios Constantinou, Maria Karekla, Despina Hadjikyriacou, January 2007
