Concussion by Jeanne Marie Laskas | Summary & Analysis Preview: Concussion by Jeanne Marie Laskas chronicles the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian-born forensic pathologist known for his seminal research on chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease largely found in people who have sustained repetitive brain trauma. In 2002, while working as a pathologist at the Allegheny County coroner’s office in Pittsburgh, Omalu autopsied the brain of Pro Football Hall of Fame center “Iron Mike” Webster of the Pittsburgh Steelers. This led to his groundbreaking discovery of CTE in the brains of relatively young and otherwise healthy football players. When he published his first report on CTE in 2005 in Neurosurgery, Omalu assumed that the National Football League (NFL) would rejoice and take steps to ensure player safety. Instead, this report would lead to a decade-long battle with the NFL, which refused to acknowledge the connection between football’s dangers and the resultant health of its players… PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Inside the most controversial issue in sports Traumatic brain injury in football is not incidental, but an inevitable and central aspect of the sport. Starting in high school, through college, and into the NFL, young players face repeated head trauma, and those sustained injuries create lifelong cognitive and functional difficulties. Muchnick's Concussion Inc. blog exposed the decades-long cover-up of scientific research into sports concussions and the ongoing denial to radically reform football in North America. This compilation from Muchnick's no-holds-barred investigative website reveals the complete head injury story as it developed, from the doctor who played fast and loose with the facts about the efficacy of the state-mandated concussion management system for high school football players, to highly touted solutions that are more self-serving cottage industry than of any genuine benefit. Known for extensive reporting on the tragic story of the Chris Benoit murder-suicide, Muchnick turns his investigative analysis to traumatic brain injury and probes deep into the corporate, government, and media corruption that has enabled the $10-billion-a-year National Football League to trigger a public health crisis.
