From two different individuals who had brain injuries and used the book to help them move forward, I can recommend it to others who are looking for answers. It is even helpful for family members and care takers of brain injured individuals.
Now; 33 years later, I am physically recouped but the brain and executive function are still and always will be impaired but reading this book has helped me understand that I will have days that are good and days that are not so good. It has helped me to better understand my mood swings, anger, thought & learning processes, anxiety, depression & bipolar disorder.
I wish I had read this or had it to read 30 years ago as it would have greatly increased my understanding of TBI and the everyday challenges we, as survivors, face everyday.
Being that I have severe Vision problems as a result of my concussion, I didn't know it it would be difficult for me to read this book. I was excited when it arrived. I read it slowly at the pace my eyes and brain could handle. Reading stories of people recovering and surviving TBI made me feel like I wasn't alone suffering from some crazy illness that people thought was in my head.
If you know someone that has a TBI its a great gift and also a good book for friends and family of those with TBI.
