Four Minute Warning

eBook (PDF), 309 Pages
(6 Ratings)
Price: $7.78
Based on true events, Four Minute Warning is a personal account of how my adolescent world of school, exams, girls and video games in the mid 1990s was suddenly thrown into turmoil by a massive brain haemorrhage, aged just fourteen, which left me semi-paralysed and unable to communicate; lost in a void of silence and confusion. Inspiring and dramatic, as well as nostalgic and humourous, Four Minute Warning is a story of a survival against the odds, shattered memories and the rebuilding of a life that had only just begun. 10% of my royalties from Four Minute Warning will be donated to Different Strokes, a UK charity created to support young stroke survivors.

After spending many years looking after people who have survived a stroke i found this a really good insight as to what happens to the brain and thought processes etc,Fabulous first novel by an outstanding author. Hope to see more books by this young man" - Gillian Rowlands "This frank and intimate book really opened my eyes to understand more about how a stroke can affect peoples lives - not just the authors. Thank you Mark for sharing part of your life with me and giving me an insight to what makes you tick. I love your honesty and humility and as you say 'despite all the odds' you have survived and made your 'mark' on my world. Thank you" - Ann Isherwood

    Four Minute Warning is a haunting, agonising and hilarious book. Although it is listed as a specialist book about a health problem, I found it an incredibly uplifting, feel-good tale about a battle against the odds, that had relevant application to pretty much anyone. I especially loved the very honest portrayal of what it meant to be a teenage boy in the mid 90s. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone; it brought a smile to my face. Just brilliant.

    This book provided a very honest and amazing account of a teenager's battle back to health having suffered a stroke. I really enjoyed this book and consider that it would be a great support to both those recovering from a stroke and their carers.
