If nothing else, I think I will better recognize symptoms of a stroke after reading this! The author does a good job of explaining the workings of, and conflict between, the right brain and the left in a way that anyone can understand. I did sense that it was somewhat oversimplified and whether this was due to the author really wanting the book to be accessible to all, or whether she, herself, still has some cognitive impairment due to her own stroke, I could not tell. Also, she skipped over huge amounts of time in her recovery timeline so the ending felt abrupt.
