At first glance, you might be tempted to think this is simply a book about recovering from a traumatic life experience, but it is so much more. A real-life tale with unexpected twists and turns, chance meetings that will inspire and amaze you, it is the story of true triumph and victory of the human spirit. It is a story about the ability to overcome insurmountable odds with dignity and tenacity and a splash of humor.
Often, truth is indeed stranger than fiction. You'll read about his triumphs over seemingly insurmountable situations, share in heartbreak and perhaps learn a little about yourself along the way. It is a tale of true victory of the human spirit. David's brain injury has cost him a lot, but he still retains the gift of adding richly textured and meaningful words to life experiences.
This book is a gift to anyone who has questioned their long-term health after a brain injury. If we could get this book into the hands of every neurologist or counselors who specialize in head injuries, the world would be a better place.
Mr. Grant captures so much of what we at first may have been called struggles. They eventually become acceptable curves in our road. Thanks for the book and may it help others through their new lifetime.
I heartily recommend this book. And I celebrate the special mix of intelligence, courage, and talent that allowed the author to share such a remarkable journey.
Aside from the fact that he is a brilliant writer, Grant opens the door of his heart so that anyone suffering from any type of brain injury can benefit. The story itself is riveting, but when you add Grant's optimism and tenacity and Sarah's unwavering support as they ramble though the complex world of medicine, you find yourself touched at a deeper level.
