I read this for a book club and didn't know what to expect. The premise seemed interesting enough considering it is the insight of a brain scientist who experienced a stroke firsthand. However, I had difficulty connecting emotionally to this book. I felt like the author was "talking down" to the reader to the point offensiveness. The majority of the book club agreed, and only one person was touched by this book. Overall, I was disappointed and thought instead of being a memoir it was actually a lengthy essay. Pass!!!!
