book review: my stroke of insight

This is a quick and easy read (I finished it in two days), but don’t let that fool you. It’s full of fascinating insights into our brains from the unique perspective of a neuroscientist who temporarily lost half of hers to a stroke. Her story is invaluable for stroke victims and their friends and families. But it can also help the rest of us understand what we are, how our brains process information to form our day to day personalities, and how to take ownership of that process to live a better life. For a preview of the topics covered in this book, you can see the author give a short presentation on it here.
