One of the best books available about sports-related concussions
Posted Mar 14 2010 12:00am
One of the things that drives me nuts, is how little truly good and reliable information there is about sports-related concussions. There are many, many studies about it, and there is tons of life experience with concussions. Yet, precious few books actually exist to share this vital information with the general public.
Despite my difficulties reading (my distractability turns it into more work than play, at times), I got through this book in the space of a few days.
Head Games – Football’s Concussion Crisis was penned by former football player and professional wrestler, Chris Nowinski, who had his career cut short by concussion. He gives good information that makes total sense. He also has some good ideas about how to address what is truly a crisis in our country. It’s well worth the read.

Personally, I’ll be buying my own copy, so I can go through it again with a highlighter. There is much good in there to be had, learned, and applied.
