Required reading for everyone!, Feb. 12 2010
I read this book from my library, and felt it was so important that I bought my own copy. This is an utterly fascinating account of a young brain scientist's stroke - she tells her story from the point of view of the sufferer and also as a scientist who knew what was happening at the moment. It would be valuable reading for anyone who will ever have a stroke, or who loves someone who has. It is especially useful in showing us how to help someone in that situation during the long months of recovery. I can't recommend it highly enough.
