My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey

A Plume Book, 2009 - 183 Seiten
Jill Bolte Taylor experienced a massive stroke in the left hemisphere of her brain. As she observed her mind deteriorate to the point that she could not walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life - all within four hours. It would take her eight years to fully recover. For Taylor, her stroke was a blessing and a revelation. It taught her that by 'stepping to the right' of left brains, she can uncover feelings of well-being that are often sidelined by 'brain chatter.' Taylor provides a recovery guide for those touched by brain injury and an testimony that inner peace is accessible to anyone.
