        It is published by the PVA. Most of the cost is for the costs of writing, editing and production of the book, but any remainder would fund PVA programs for SCI/D veterans as well as their research and education programs.

                I thought this was the stupidest book ever in rehab and wouldn't open it because I was going to make a full recovery anyway.

                Still got it and it actually is useful every so often. Covers many important topics.

                    I thought I was the only one. Even when they were fitting me for my chair, I wasn't taking it seriously, I just didn't want to accept the fact that 'this was going to be me'.

                      I still think CC should have a pamplet. I was lucky and had an OT at the rehab hospital I went to gave me the the V.A. book. She also gave me a list of other Sci info I could find online and recomended Dr. Wise as her favorite. She didn't mention CC, and I didn't get the conection till I stumbled onto this site. Seems like most find this site by looking online, but it took me awhile to find it and I could have used it earlier in my recovery. The info here was better than I was getting from anywhere else. Still is.

                        That's such a helpful thing but the greatest part is that it's free of cost....really appreciating.

                          I sniffed all thru the PVA site and could not find that book. Found other valuable stuff, but not the book. Has anyone actually seen the books page lately?

                            PVA changed their website (for the worse) some time ago. You can access this publication here (not easy to find):
