While the information about brain hemispheres is useful, the author's personal insights become incredibly
Repetitive in the final chapters.
Her retelling of her time during the stroke is powerfully told and worth reading.

Interesting book relating a neuroanatomist's memory of suffering a stroke and the experiences that followed during the months of recovery.

This was a quick read but full of hope for those who have suffered a brain injury and also full of valuable information and advice for those who are caretakers.

I found this book fascinating. The author is a neuroscientist who has a massive stroke and lost the use of the left half of her brain. It took many years for her to recover fully. Her description of life with just the right brain sounded very similar to an enlightened nirvana-like state. A really interesting study of how we can choose how to interact with the world.
