mTBI listener here

I have been on the search for funny books dealing with TBIs. For me, Mimi’s book struck chords when I least expected it. The chapters dealing with rehab, work and dating really resonated with me. Brain injuries are all different but this book shows that the struggle to recover, the fear of being abandoned by our support groups and just wishing for normalcy are universal. I appreciate that this book comes in audiobook format. Making books like this accessible either in audio or large print format is very important.

My New Hero!

Loved this! Perfectly describes the struggles of recovering from a brain injury with a side of comedy and guacamole.

Great story but with a very angry tone

Too many F words for my taste and so upset of life. Not for me

Great story

So so good. Loved it. Loved the narrator. A real talent for making a bad story funny at times.

Kill Your Darlings

The editor spared the red pen on this one. It started out lively enough, but then slowed, becoming a lengthy, tedious memoir, repetitious and heavy on minutiae. In the last 15 minutes of the book, the author switched gears and interjected overtones of self-help, hoping her book had helped the listener with self-love issues.
