I am TBI survivor. Both my wife and I have read many books on TBI. This is an honest, accurate representation of this injury. As the book says, no two injuries and the results are the same, but there are certain aspects that seem to be common to all. Very well written and easily read.

As a 10 year TBI survivor David's story made me cry! As I was subjected to so many similar things! I have never heard from another survivor it did my heart good! So, similar yet so different as we are individuals. Thank you David for sharing your journey!!!!

This is an amazing perspective on Traumatic Brain Injury, written by a TBI survivor two years after the accident that left him "permanently disabled." His struggles are heart-breaking but his determination and generosity are inspiring. I have been learning about traumatic brain injury myself for the past two years, in my case as a friend of a survivor and as a learning specialist. The impact of this injury on survivors and their families is applling and we see ample evidence of this in the book: health care professionals who were less than helpful but happy to take his money, the frustrating lack of help from insurance, the fading away of old friends, the challenges that must have seemed overwhelming, and the struggle with depression and PTSD in addition to the physical and mental damage . .

As a professional I treat brain injury, develop materials to retrain injured brains, and blog about TBI and concussion. I found David Grant's story compelling but I wish he had provided the sorts of information that probably would have bored anyone without my psychological preoccupation. I experienced the same frustration in reading My Stroke of Insight. I want to ask, " Yes, but what did you do, in excruciating detail please, to make progress since your injury?"

For any normal reader wanting to understand one man's experiences as a result of this injury, I heartily recommend this book. And I celebrate the special mix of intelligence, courage, and talent that allowed the author to share such a remarkable journey. My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey

A friend recommended this book to me after my wife had a bicycle accident and resulting TBI that hospitalized her for six weeks (and counting). I found the book to be very informative and a bit chilling concerning the challenges we are likely to face over the coming years but forewarned is forearmed and I'm glad to have read it. I don't know that I'd recommend it for TBI victims early in their recovery as it might be discouraging to realize that they may face late onset problems while they're trying to come to grips with their current difficulties.

I am also a survivor. My attention span is probably about a half hour tops. I read this book in one day over the course of many stops and starts. So much of the book is what I live every day, but so much of what I live with was not included. I guess that doesn't make much sense, but I guess some of you will know what I mean. We are all different in more than how we seem to others. We come to the fact that we know we are different in ourselves. Mr. Grant captures so much of what we at first may have been called struggles. They eventually become acceptable curves in our road. Thanks for the book and may it help others through their new lifetime.

As the wife of a veteran with PTSD, my heart goes out to anyone with PTSD or TBI, or as in David's case, both. I love how he says, "With the passage of time, new perspectives are gained, new insights emerge." Truly evident in his gripping account. Thank you, David, for baring your soul to provide encouragement to all who share a similar journey. Forever changed, but also grateful. Way to go, David! And God bless Sarah too.

David Grant is my hero, and equally so is Sarah Grant. What a compelling story that may not have been told without this complementary team.

Aside from the fact that he is a brilliant writer, Grant opens the door of his heart so that anyone suffering from any type of brain injury can benefit. The story itself is riveting, but when you add Grant's optimism and tenacity and Sarah's unwavering support as they ramble though the complex world of medicine, you find yourself touched at a deeper level.

I will be following his superb blog at [...], for the insight I gain will be invaluable as I occasionally do volunteer for for the disabled and disadvantaged. And I look forward to his next book. I'm hooked.

My sister had a brain tumor removed and we are trying to learn all we can as she recovers and has very little short term memory. This book gave me a lot of good ideas to help her and I quickly shared with other family members to read.
