Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had a stroke years ago and I could relate totally to his descriptions. It felt good to hear someone else relating to what I was feeling during my stroke. I always thought I was either imaginating or 'blowing out of portion' things that happened to me but his book showed me that what I thought or felt really did happened!
