Dr. Taylor describes the events of her stroke and subsequent recovery. Trained as a neuroanatomist she under went the stroke with a unique perspective and is able to provide insights into how the brain functions on different levels in different regions. The descriptions of her brain shutting down, the spiritial awakening as the right side took control, and the fight for recovery are well orth the read.
