Publisher's Summary

"I was in absolutely top physical and mental shape when this happened, and I will do whatever it takes to get back to where I was."
At the start of his second year at Harvard, Martin was hit by a car and thrown 150 feet. He landed on his head, suffering severe traumatic brain injury. He resolved to get back.
Climbing Back: A Family's Journey Through Brain Injury follows Martin's sister, father, and mother (the author) as they accompany Martin through rehabilitation and recovery. They find that they too must work to get back, to heal their own minds and souls.
Climbing Back chronicles their extraordinary, transformative journey of realignment and recovery - illuminating mysteries and miracles large and small, laughter's restorative power, and the natural world's vital relationship to the process of healing.

Live in a Hidden Part of Our Culture?

I disagree with Dr. Joseph S. Ratner when he states people with brain injury live in the hidden part of our culture. We are not hidden. A brain injury is not visible to the naked eye upon superfluous observation.
This book is a beautiful example of the strength in communal and familial love and support combined with her son's inner strength and determination to successfully journey through brain injury and the medical establishment. I recommend this book as a must read to anyone with a family member or loved one who has experienced a trauma to the brain.

As a t.b.i. Surviver I was moved

I didn't hear nothing that I didn't go through myself although I am still going threw it.
