Dr. Beverly Klug, a professor emerita in the College of Education at Idaho State University and the author of two other books and many chapters and journal articles in the field of education, has completed her new book “Riding on the Sun: Surviving and Thriving with Traumatic Brain Injury”: an invaluable resource for anyone touched by TBI. Co-authors Drs. Mark Corgiat and Theresa Ross add to understandings about TBI causes and its effects.
Klug was a professor in education at a large university when she was involved in a traffic accident. Throughout her recovery and the years following, she learned a great deal about human brains and the impacts of brain injuries on all areas of cognition. She learned how to adjust her workload and teaching to accommodate her disabilities. She had to be honest and open with her students about what had happened to her and reteach herself in areas affected by her injuries.
As with all TBIs, Klug’s home life was negatively impacted as she could not continue to take on the same load as before. While functioning normally on the outside, she was experiencing the terrible impacts of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on the inside. Operating in a world that seemed as alien as another planet was an everyday challenge for several years.
Friends, families, and professionals will benefit from this book as it provides a view of what it feels like on a daily basis to be part of and yet not part of a familiar landscape. The good news is that TBI survivors can develop resiliency while needing to readjust their ways of thinking, learning, and doing. While they may not appear to be the same to those who knew them best prior to their TBIs, they can again learn how to thrive in their new lives with all their uncertainties.
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Dr. Beverly Klug’s inspiring and informative story is a must-read for families, friends, and caregivers of anyone who has suffered a traumatic brain injury.
Readers who wish to experience this illuminating work can purchase “Riding on the Sun: Surviving and Thriving with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
