This publication is the same as that issued to medical professionals for their own education and used extensively by victims of Strokes in hospital.
It is a clear and readily understood description of the struggle many suffers will encounter in the conduct of their rehabilitation. Graphics and words enable the publication to be vital reading for those from all educational backgrounds.
Jargon is minimised and the book focusses on the learning processes required of the victim in what will always be a considerable uphill struggle to regain control of their ability to form speech and restore stature.
A fabulous publication which is recommended to all that may have endured a Stroke or TIA, Transient Ischemic Attack.
Superb, sympathetic, encouraging and inspirational... A Stroke need not be such a defining moment in one's life but one's recovery should, instead, be seen as the turning point.

This is an extremely useful, readable book, with a lot of valuable information for stroke survivors and their carers. It covers all sorts of subjects related to stroke and the issues faced by stroke victims. I wish I had come across it sooner. My only disappointment was that there was less in the book about aphasia than I had hoped, and what there was was too general for my needs. I would definitely recommend it for people who have recently suffered a stroke and anyone helping them - get hold of it as soon after the stroke as you can for maximum help.
