5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Idaho John on April 7, 2009
Format: Perfect Paperback
I bought this book because I have a brother with a traumatic brain injury (TBI), and I hoped that it would contribute some insight into his world. I have read several other books on traumatic brain injuries, all written by specialists in the field, so I assumed that I had a relatively good perspective of what it is like to live with a TBI. I couldn't have been more wrong - this book really opened my eyes!

The book is authored by a TBI survivor, and from the very first page I was drawn into his world. It reads like a well-written novel, spread over a 10-year period. The book covers his revovery from injury, rehabilitation, adjustment to his TBI deficits, and the discrimination he encountered at his workplace (UPS). Most importantly, we see the world from the perspective of a TBI survivor. Mr. Sweeney tells his story in a straight-forward manner and allows us to experience the up-and-downs of his recovery and struggle to return to his former self and life. It is an emotional roller-coaster of a ride, told with humor and gut-wrenching honesty.

If you know a survivor of a traumatic brain injury, or if you just want to read a great story, then get this book. I can't wait for the movie.

My brother has a brain injury from a truck accident four years ago. I really learned what my brother is going through. My brother has trouble getting feeling and thoughts together and verbalized. To read what the author thought, felt and dealt with was very interesting to me. I give him the utmost respect for getting his experience on paper for me to read. I am looking forward to my sister reading this book. It's an experience that we may never have understood until now.

This book never lets you put it down! It is extremely hard to imagine what survivors of brain injuries deal with on a daily basis. I felt like I was sitting across the table listening to the author tell the story. It was honest, eye-opening, straight forward and a few laughs were thrown in. I never knew this type of world existed. This is a great book. Never read one like it. Hats off to the author.

This book was truly inspirational for me, Being the spouse of a TBI Survivor this book was a mirror like image to what our family was dealing with. It gave me hope when i thought I had none, strength to know others were going through the same, and courage to help our family heal. The patience, love and support that was shown in this book clearly helped our family to fight hard to make our life as normal as possible.
