Editorial Reviews

From the Author

For years I fantasized about writing this book, talked about writingthis book, bragged about writing this book even before I had written one word. Since it was unusual for me to believe that I had something ofvalue to say, something of value to teach, I never really believed I'ddo it. It didn't fit with my perception of myself--I'm undisciplined, aprocrastinator, I barely got through high school. But in my fantasies, I knew a few things. I knew the title of the book, I knew what I wasgoing to wear on Oprah, and, most importantly, I knew that a portion ofthe proceeds from the sale of the book, the book that I'd yet to writeone word of, was going to Mt. Sinai Hospital's Traumatic Brain InjuryUnit.

Ruby was born there in 1977; eighteen years later, she would bere-born there once again. Ruby's accident has taught us to give thanks, for the big and small, the important and the inconsequential. It isimpossible to give thanks without thanking Mt. Sinai first; they comefirst; they will always come first. Dr. Steven Flanagan, who was theMedical Director of Mt. Sinai Hospital's Brain Injury RehabilitationUnit and Ruby's physician throughout her rehabilitation, is now Chairman of Rehabilitation Medicine at New York University's School of Medicine. Since to my family, Dr. Flanagan is synonymous with success, we willcontinue to support both Mt. Sinai Hospital's and Rusk Institute'sTraumatic Brain Injury Units.
