The BIAKS-GKC publication, Traumatic Head Injury: Cause, Consequence, and Challenge, has provided guidance to thousands of people over the years.  Known by many as the “Red Book“, this easy to read book was first published in 1987 and is now in its third edition.  Written by Dennis Swiercinsky, Terrie Price and Leif Leaf, the “Red Book” explores the causes and consequences of brain injury, rehabilitation opportunities for regaining as much functional independence as possible, and how to adjust to “the  new normal”of brain injury.
