“It is always a pleasure when I read the words of an author who eloquently articulates ideas I believe to be important. Even better when it is a patient’s family that leads me there. A couple of days ago, I was led to a brainline.org article published last year, “Fighting the “TBI Wars”: New Alternatives for TBI Survivors,” by Joel Goldstein, based on his book, No Stone Unturned: A Father’s Memoir of His Son’s Encounter with Traumatic Brain Injury. Goldstein expresses his hope that he can pass along lessons learned from his son’s tragic situation, most pointedly, evaluating and experiencing therapies alternative to conventional medicine.”

“Professionals and the lay public will be equally captivated as the neuroscience of TBI leaps into stark humanity in the pages of this superbly written, fascinating story. This book should be added to the medical student curriculum nationwide.”

“No Stone Unturned exemplifies the faith, tenacity and energy of a single family confronting a tragedy both unexpected and life altering. Readers will find they become physically and emotionally trapped within its pages, but with no desire to free themselves. Son Bart’s traumatic brain injury, as well as his family’s determination to minimize its effects, serve as a primer for families confronting the complexities and hurdles that always lie in wait for those most in need.”

“In a voice that is sometimes wrenching, often comic, always fully human, Joel Goldstein brings us into the world he and his network of family and friends learned to navigate in the quest to help his son, Bart, recover from traumatic brain injury. No Stone Unturned shows how well the system can work when families and professionals unite in the journey that is TBI rehabilitation.”
