"This a tremendously important book. Peter Levine has carefully and accurately brought together complex research findings from both basic neuroscience and clinical rehabilitation. Not only that, but he has made the material both accessible and enjoyable to read. "-Sarah A. Raskin, PhD, ABBP/ABCN, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Program, Trinity College
"Recovery from stroke is a lifelong journey. Stronger After Stroke by Peter Levine provides a hopeful, practical, and informative roadmap that explains how the brain recovers in the early stages of stroke recovery and guides the reader through lifestyle strategies that will lead to a healthy and happy life after stroke." -Katherine J. Sullivan, PhD, PT, Associate Professor of Clinical Physical Therapy, University of Southern California
"This second edition of Stronger After Stroke...incorporates a straightforward, commonsense, 'outsider' perspective. The combination of Pete's voice as a writer and his veracity for 'science over sentiment' distinguish this book from the rest of the pack." -Stephen J. Page, PhD, MS, MOT, FAHA, Director, Neurorecovery and Rehabilitation Laboratory; The Ohio State University Medical Center
"Brain plasticity is one of the most exciting discoveries ever made because it has implications for everyone. In Stronger After Stroke, Peter Levine explains how the discovery that the brain can be rewired is bringing new hope to stroke survivors. While this book is aimed directly at stroke survivors I also highly recommend it to all caregivers (including physicians) and loved ones because it contains practical, down-to-earth advice. More importantly, it separates the science from the hype and gathers all the latest information into one easy-to-read volume." -Ginger Campbell, MD, Creator and Host of the Brain Science Podcast, Author of Are You Sure? The Unconscious Origins of Certainty (20121130) --Sarah A. Raskin, PhD, ABBP/ABCN, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Program, Trinity College

This book is a must have!
The key point this doctor made crystal clear was that the ONLY injured part of his body was somewhere within the BRAIN. The rest of his disabilities were not actually what they appeared to be. And I came away from this book knowing that he will recover fully, or near to it. With the right understanding and appropriate action taken to heal THE BRAIN. The rest would follow through.
