This is a very readable book written through the eyes of a stroke survivor. He shares his challenges and frustrations and how humbling and exhausting it is to live with post stroke challenges. Many of his frustrations are all too common. He shares how difficult it is to have problems with comprehension – a problem that is frequently overlooked. He also mentions that he recognized his progress, but it wasn’t always noticed by others, and how this ended his insurance reimbursement. However, the author thrived on faith, family and friends and he shares not only his challenges but how he faced them. Best of all, he writes helpful hints which led to his success.
As he says: “the book describes what it’s like for a survivor to fight for their former life.”
