“A powerful, real and hopeful voice. Her raw and emotional account explores a crucial mindset shift: how to hold the negative and the positive in your hand at the same time.”
Clare Marie Barbao, Speech-Language Pathologist, UVA
Beth Cottone has given generously in this book about how experiencing stroke has changed her life. She has opened up her own life story so that other survivors of brain injuries and those who care for them can see what is possible in the aftermath.
She has included entries from her personal journal that show her progress, while also providing insight into the scientific basis for her injury and recovery.
Beth Cottone’s book is both a very personal reflection and a clear interpretation of the neurology of stroke.
