This is an important, cutting-edge work by the premier specialist in his field. If you watch sports, or if you have a young athlete in your family, you need to read this book. Dan Shaughnessy, author of The Curse of the Bambino
From Washington to Quebec, from offices at the NFL to the New York Times, from the NHL players union to the soccer fields of Anytown, U.S.A., people are talking about concussions. At the center of this crisis and one of the key reasons for this increased awareness is Dr. Robert Cantu, the country s leading expert on athletic brain trauma and a pioneer in the study of the link between concussions and progressive brain disease in athletes.
Concussions and Our Kids is the first prescriptive book of its kind to address the issue of head trauma in sports and to offer guidelines for playing sports safely. Described as the single most important issue in sports today, concussions are widespread and devastating. Dr. Cantu has treated thousands of patients, from pro athletes to peewee players, and his groundbreaking research is changing how sports are played. Parents, coaches, and players can learn from this combination manifesto/manual, helping to reduce concussions now and prevent more brain trauma down the road.
A well-researched, riveting story that every coach and parent of a young athlete should read. Christine Brennan, USA Today sports columnist and author of Best Seat in the House
[AU PHOTO] ROBERT CANTU, M.D., is the chief of neurosurgery and chairman of the Department of Surgery at Emerson Hospital, and codirector of Boston University s Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy. At his practice at Emerson Hospital, he treats hundreds of patients a year for concussions suffered while playing sports.
MARK HYMAN is a sports journalist whose previous books on youth sports are Until It Hurts and The Most Expensive Game in Town.
