Lovina Mack in Canon City, CO writes:

I found the book equally as valuable as Jill Bolte Taylor's, "My Stroke of Insight" in understanding stroke and how to help my friends who have had strokes. It is from a different perspective, as a different stroke experience. The book offers treatment options. But more importantly, it offers the value of a positive attitude and hard work. Amy is an inspiration to all of us.

Format: Paperback
A great story of one young woman's will to regain her active lifestyle after a stroke. The author inspires with her determination, curiosity, and tenacity as she explores every possible rehabilitative technique. A good lesson, particularly for active adults who suddenly find their lives turned upside down. Ms. Finger encourages others to persist in finding just the right therapies for their particular situation.....out-of-the-box thinking at it's best. She shines a light on the many alternative possibilities for stroke recovery. You just might find within this enjoyable story the perfect solution for you or a loved one.

I'm a therapist and know that the mind is the most powerful thing we have. Ms. Finger powerfully demonstrates the importance of attitude in the healing process, and generously and openly shares her journey with us.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed your book. Your story came through loud and clear---determination, courage, will to fight through, mind over matter, be your own doctor and therapist at times, look for alternatives, must tailor therapy to each case, challenge the conventional wisdom, there is hope, etc.

I think your organization is good for anyone looking to find parts of the book tied to the table of contents.

from Joe Arbuckle, a 32 year career soldier who has served since the late 60s in peace and war through demanding situations where adversity and challenges were common events. From that perspective, he has a special appreciation for Amy's story and message.

I personally know Amy and Gary and the book reads just like having a conversation with Amy, this is a great book, written by a young woman who went through something quite traumatic. Amy continues to work hard at her recovery and has made progress well beyond what the doctors could have imagined.

This woman's life was crippled by a stroke, and her journal of recovery and self-analysis is a triumph of spirit.
