Mind boggling. This book, aside from giving hope to those who are born with mental disabilities and those who have suffered injuries to their brains, also encourages regular readers to never underestimate their capabilities. There are stories of patients that were able to overcome emotional as well as physical traumas thanks to the belief that the brain is plastic and therefore is capable of reorganizing and growing. The brain is an even more remarkable organ than we could have ever imagined.
