Praise for The Beautiful Brain 'I can't even tell you how many women and their caregivers found us and joined our support groups thanks to The Beautiful Brain and Hana's work on TBI in Domestic Violence because I have lost count! There is a true power in this work.'
I can't stop thinking about its core message - the breadth or argument and depth of detail are remarkable
'It's gripping and essential - if often overwhelmingly poignant and righteously enraging, as much a call-to-arms as a piece of investigative journalism.'
A powerful debut. A delicate game is on its surface an urgently needed exposé on one of the most lethal and horrifyingly well-kept secrets of contact sport. An eye-opening mix of neuroscience, politics, and facts and figures that show the real dangers of even the most seemingly minor head injury and what happens when there are people with power and a vested interest in keeping these dangers quiet. At its heart however it is so much more. A book about people, relationships, memories and love, and the devastation left behind when we lose any of those things. An intimate, lovingly crafted collection of interviews woven together to give us an insight into the lived experience of people personally affected by CTE, and to ensure these personal stories are heard. Hana Walker-Brown is an incredible talent, deftly shifting between storyteller, science communicator, and political commentator. Prepare to be informed, devastated, and to find yourself raring to join in the campaign to make sure head trauma is understood and prevented at all costs."
