Review quote

"While the chapters on body changes in the various organ systems are written at approximately a high school reading level and contain some medical jargon, they offer a great deal of detail not found in other books on this topic. This book is recommended for all consumer health libraries, and is highly recommended for those serving rehabilitation settings." -Deborah Magnan, Samuel and Sandra Hekemian Medical Library, Hackensack University Medical Center, Hackensack, NJ, CAPHIS "Mayo Clinic Guide to Living with a Spinal Cord Injury brings down the full force of the Mayo Clinic's medical expertise...is a must for any coping with this difficult situation." -The Midwest Book Review "Illustrated and easy to consult, Mayo Clinic Guide to Living with a Spinal Cord Injury provides the basics of challenges and how to overcome them: any serious health library needs this patient reference." -California Bookwatch "A helpful, well-organized, readable guide." - Library Journal"This is a very helpful guide especially for the newly injured and their families as they begin to put together a plan for their new life.
