Linda Carroll and David Rosner have a book called Concussion Crisis: Anatomy of a Silent Epidemic, and they’re interviewed about it at the website of The Atlantic. See http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2011/09/how-to-fix-sports-concussion-crisis/245733/#.ToH1HQ7dioU.email.

I love this take in an email from author-blogger Matt Chaney (whose longer writings everyone can follow at http://blog.4wallspublishing.com/):

Latest cutting-edge authors stay stepping to establishment line, playing same old song. It’s like, Oh, you can no longer watch football, but it’s “fixable” for other people? Especially the hubby, former loyal fan? Yeah, way to step out on a limb, recommend the obvious impossibility for almost any public school, qualified med response at every football collision, every practice and game–without stating it’s obviously impossible for public football in America. That act is already old, for the allegedly hardcore or indie critics, too timid to speak their minds.
