There is far more to recapturing full, independent lives after spinal-cord injury (SCI) than regaining movement, according to Spinal Cord Injury and the Family. Central to long-term success is mending the family unit. The book is for people and their families who must climb back from injury.

The authors cover the causes and prognoses for SCI through case studies, review common courses of rehab, and answer “what now?” questions, from daily routines to larger issues concerning sex, education and employment, childbearing, and parenting with SCI.

Published by the Harvard University Press, Spinal Cord Injury and the Family shows how real people are living full lives after SCI.

By Michelle J. Alpert and Saul Wisnia. 360 pages; paperback, $17.50; hardcover, $36.50.
