Reading it was like reading a page of my "normal" day. My car accident was 1 1/2 years ago and I'm still affected by post concussion syndrome. The book describes what I canot and gives words and shapes to that which I can't begin to name. I loved that the library had a copy, but now I need to get my own copy. I've recommended it to my neuropsychologist and family members - who, by the way, don't quite "get" why I'm still a bit strange so long after my accident. Thank you Dr. Denton!

Great book! Should be required reading for all anyone with a brain injury as well as Doctors and Nurses who care for them in and out of the hospital. Also, should be read with love by all family members and caregivers!! I'm going to have to buy this one so I can go back and refer to the chapters as I need them.
