This book tells the story of my healing process, my personal recovery experiences, and some advice and tips from someone who has been hurt and understands what it takes to get back to normal. It also includes profanity and swears words, as that is my personal style, and I don't believe I can hide it. It's my perspective on injury and recovery, as well as life, the world, and horses. Some of the sections are realistic, while others are philosophical. There are large, general issues that (I believe) most injured people can relate to, and there are niche and oddly specific sections of the book. I hope you will find this book informative and entertaining. Let's just hope this is the last time either of us will need to read this novel.

This is a comprehensive, must-have reference that provides parents with the support and information they need to help their child recover from a closed-head injury and prevent further incidents. Coping with traumatic brain injury (TBI) involves a complex process of readjustment to the changes in a once healthy child and affects everyone in the family. Traumatic brain injury occurs when the brain abruptly and violently moves within the skull as a result of extreme force to the head during an automobile, biking, or playground accident, for example. The effects of TBI can range from mild to severe and recovery can take from weeks to years. Although each child's condition is unique, all TBI patients experience impairment in one or more of the following areas: cognition; emotion/behaviour; and motor skills. While TBI can happen to anyone, children, particularly teens, are susceptible. And, children who have already had one TBI are at greatest risk. Written by a team of medical specialists, therapists, educators, and an attorney, the book covers: what is traumatic brain injury?; medical concerns; rehabilitation and treatments; coping and adjustment; effects on learning and thinking, speech and language, and behaviour; educational needs; and legal issues. Throughout the book, a case study of a boy who was injured at age eight, illustrates the effects of TBI on education, socialisation and independence. Parent statements at the end of each chapter attest to the variety of response families have, and offer insight about the experience of raising a child with TBI. A resource guide of support and advocacy organisations, a reading list, and glossary round out this authoritative guide. This book is useful to professionals who provide services to children with TBI and their families. General and special educators will find it essential reading to help their students with TBI. But most of all, the book gives parents the hope and facts they need to improve the outcome of their child's recovery.

Now in its ninth edition, Atiyah's Accidents, Compensation and the Law explores the recent and continuous developments in personal injury law by applying social context to the relevant legal principles.

Suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in tort law, this new edition balances theory, practice and context. It draws on new legislation, research and case law to offer the reader thought-provoking examples and analysis.

In this provocative exploration of what draws us to sport as participants and spectators, Tom Murray argues that the values and meanings embedded within our games provide the guidance we need to make difficult decisions about fairness and performance-enhancing technologies. Simply saying that using performance-enhancing drugs is against the rules begs essential questions. The people who play and govern sport create the rules; rules can be changed. Technologies such as fiberglass vaulting poles and hinged skates enhance athletes' performance, not just drugs. Why are some technologies accepted in sport while performance-enhancing drugs are forbidden? Would athletes' health be protected better if at least some performance-enhancing drugs were permitted under doctors' supervision? 'Good Sport' reveals what we really value in sport and how the reckless use of biomedical enhancements undermines those values.
