Description

The international best seller and recommended by medics, patients and the NHS, this is a brain scientist's personal experience of a stroke. It tells of her journey and gives rare insight into human consciousness and its possibilities for all of us.

On the morning of the 10th December 1996, Jill Bolte Taylor, a 37-year-old Harvard-trained brain scientist, experienced a massive stroke when a blood vessel exploded in the left side of her brain.  

A neuroanatomist by profession, she observed her own mind completely deteriorate to the point that she lost the ability to walk, talk, read, write or recall any of her life, all within the space of four hours. As the damaged left side of her brain - the rational, logical, detail and time-oriented side - swung in and out of function, Taylor alternated between two distinct and opposite realities: the euphoric nirvana of the intuitive and emotional right brain, in which she felt a sense of complete well-being and peace, and the logical left brain that realised Jill was having a stroke and enabled her to seek help before she was lost completely. 

In My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey, Taylor brings to light a new perspective on the brain and its capacity for recovery that she gained through the intimate experience of awakening her own injured mind. The journey to recovery took eight years for Jill to feel completely healed. Using her knowledge of how the brain works, her respect for the cells composing her human form, and an amazing mother, Taylor completely repaired her mind and recalibrated her understanding of the world according to the insight gained from her right brain that December morning.

fantastic insights!

At first I watched the TedEx speach several times and shared it with people who understood the language. Then I found this book in German language and gave it to people in need. Now again I gave it to a German grandmother who is soooo sad because her 10 years old granddaughter is loosing parts of her brilliant brain by a kind of stroke.
Hopefully this book will help the child as well as her loved ones to handle this situation.
I have ordered the audio book and really . . . I would love to help children and parents on their way to a new brain.
I have been reading books about brainfunctions by Norman Doidge, David Perlmutter and some more about healing and preventing Alzheimer and so on.
I love Jill's book for people, who have never before being touched with this kind of themes.
Tank you ❤
