Change in the Weather: Life After Stroke | [Mark McEwen, Daniel Paisner]

Change in the Weather: Life After Stroke

Mark McEwen's stroke was anything but sudden. His symptoms led him to a hospital, where he was misdiagnosed with the flu. Two days later, on an airplane flight just hours before he finally collapsed, flight attendants and airport staff discounted his slurred speech and heavy sweating, passing him off as intoxicated. Misinformation not only delayed his treatment but nearly cost him his life.

Publisher's Summary

Mark McEwen's stroke was anything but sudden. His symptoms led him to a hospital, where he was misdiagnosed with the flu. Two days later, on an airplane flight just hours before he finally collapsed, flight attendants and airport staff discounted his slurred speech and heavy sweating, passing him off as intoxicated. Misinformation not only delayed his treatment but nearly cost him his life.

A candid, moving memoir, Change in the Weather traces one man's recovery in the aftermath of temporarily losing some of his greatest gifts---his talent as a public speaker and his warm, witty exuberance. Telling an ultimately triumphant story, McEwen also offers insights into the warning signs of stroke as well as prevention and treatment options.

Change in the Weather signals a change in America's mind-set, led by one of our most dynamic new crusaders for stroke victims and their families.

"This is a book about humility, dignity, courage and never giving up.... Kudos to celebrity Mark McEwen for the courage to share his stroke recovery journey." (James Baranski, CEO of the National Stroke Association)
"McEwen was voted one of the most trusted people in America.... His wit and warmth made him a welcome guest in millions of homes. The stroke almost took all that away [but] today he has a new mission." (CBS.com)
