    This book speaks inspiration to all. The author has given personal insight on the journey to recovery from brain injury. It is easy to read, with heartfelt emotion, compassion, and humor. You won't want to put it down! It has given me perspective as a Physical Therapist, Mother, and as a Person. I know it would be inspiring for other medical professionals, patients, family members, spouses, caregivers and friends. I think this is a wonderful book and would recommend it to all.

    Billie Jo Waters’ compelling story is a must read for anyone who has experienced a brain injury, as well as for the family, friends and professionals who care about them. The author’s personal journey through the months and years following her own brain injury illuminates the obstacles faced by survivors, the courage and determination needed to overcome them, and the joy of achieving new goals and dreams. Everyday scenes from the author’s life educate the reader about the countless changes to the survivor’s world—including many subtleties perhaps underappreciated by others. Billie Jo Waters’ writing style is concise and straightforward, blending wit, hope and humor into a book difficult to put down. Her remarkable story is an inspiration.

    The author has created a memoir that gives the reader a window into the experiences of a survivor of cerebral hemorrhage. An amazing woman who courageously tells the story of her journey as she applies herself to rehabilitation and recovery with the same zeal that she applied to her life and career. The vignettes in this book will give insight to family members, friends, and caregivers of those who have suffered brain injury and are an inspiration for all.

    As a speech-language pathologist and a professor at a brain injury program for over 30 years who has read many books by survivors, this book ranks with the best of them and should be required reading for survivors, caregivers and professionals. The entries are short, easy to read and yet illuminating and to the point. These vignettes of moments in time in the author's ongoing journey of recovery stimulate us to think about the nature of ability/disability, hope/despair, and connectedness/isolation. The core questions are implied throughout: "What is the nature of one's true self? and "What do the words "getting better" mean after brain injury?"
