'I would recommend this book to those treating and working with those who have suffered ABI as part of the tools early in the rehabilitation programme. Its strengths are practical and step-by-step exercises and the lack of confusing medical jargon...There is no resource like this book so far that is focused on providing practical help on ADL for people for people recovering enough from ABI to want to return to independent living. It is a resource tool for everyone involved in the rehabilitation of people with ABI, from the doctors, through the occupational therapists/psychologists to the carers.' 2012 BMA Medical Book Awards Judges
