The outcry surrounding CTE is missing something critical: the science to justify it.
"Brainwashed is a must-read for any parent]€]there is still so much unknown in the realm of head injuries and concussions. We both feel more educated after reading Merril's book." -- Ben Roethlisberger and Ashley Roethlisberger "Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback; physician assistant"
"Brainwashed turns discussions [about CTE and concussions] upside down and gives them a good hard shake. A very interesting read." -- Cris Collinsworth "Analyst on NBC's Sunday Night Football and former NFL player"
"I urge you to read Brainwashed. Thank you, Merril, for presenting us with perspective and taking to task the people who have owned the narrative of CTE." -- Suzy Kolber "Host of ESPN's Monday Night Countdown"
"Merril Hoge and Dr. Peter Cummings have produced a detailed, well-documented, first-hand account of the issues that surround the sport of football and the potential for brain injury." -- Dr. Julian Bailes "Director of neurosurgery and codirector of the NorthShore HealthSystem Neurological Institute"
"Reading Brainwashed was an eye-opening experience. It exposes the hidden agendas at play and bad science at work." -- Trent Dilfer and Cassandra Dilfer "Super Bowl champion; former collegiate athlete"
"Whatever your position on the subject of CTE may be, you should read this book. It contains information every parent and athlete should carefully review." -- Bill Polian "Former NFL general manager"
