Excellent, informative, important
The information about the function of the left brain vs. right brain.
Jill herself was my favorite character.
The function of the brain.
This is now one of my favorite books and I have read 100's of non-fiction books. I read this as an audio with Jill herself as the narrator. The amount of important information about the left hemisphere and right hemisphere as well as, the new knowledge of what a stroke survivor is going through is absolutely invaluable to the medical field. Jill Bolte Taylor is now one of my new heros.
I recommend this book as it provides you education on how our brain works as well as inspiration on the human spirit.
Learning how the Right Brain and Left Brain function -
Jill speaks from the heart. This was my first time listening to Jill
I recommend this book to everyone. It a repeated read.
It's interesting to learn how are left and right brain are opposites in allot of ways, but we as humans are very similar to one another. I came away feeling more connected with others and will use Jill's definition of FEAR moving forward - "False expectations appearing real"
Après un début assez technique où j'ai été tentée d'abandonner la lecture, j'ai trouvé le récit de l'accident cérébral et de la guérison intéressant. L'explication du rôle des deux hemisphères du cerveau est fascinante et la conviction de l'auteure qu'on peut se conditionner à activer davantage le droit pour être heureux inspire l'espoir.
Jill has really shed a bright light upon the brain. Her story is incredible and so useful for every day life.
I'm studying to be certified as a MnemeTherapist, to do directed painting with those who have brain issues. This book was on our reading list, but I would recommend it for everyone!!!
After suffering a TBI, I was desperate to hear recovery success stories. This book assured me of the plasticity of the brain.
An amazing trip into a re-builded brain. I can not see my own brain in the same way as before. If you are interested in the plasticity of the brain, this is your book.
Amazing insight into patients who have stroke!
How Dr. Taylor talked about how she felt when dealing with health care workers.
This is a MUST read for all health care workers.
While I loved the book, I loved hearing the words in her own voice.
Ms. Taylor's incredible ability to realize and talk about what was going on in her brain.
Definitely recommend this book to anyone, especially anyone dealing with someone with stroke or brain disease.
