[PDF/ePUB] My Stroke of Insight – Jill Bolte Taylor

My Stroke of Insight image


On December 10, 1996, Jill Bolte Taylor, a thirty-seven- year-old Harvard-trained brain scientist experienced a massive stroke in the left hemisphere of her brain. As she observed her mind deteriorate to the point that she could not walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life-all within four hours-Taylor alternated between the euphoria of the intuitive and kinesthetic right brain, in which she felt a sense of complete well-being and peace, and the logical, sequential left brain, which recognized she was having a stroke and enabled her to seek help before she was completely lost. It would take her eight years to fully recover. For Taylor, her stroke was a blessing and a revelation. It taught her that by "stepping to the right" of our left brains, we can uncover feelings of well-being that are often sidelined by "brain chatter." Reaching wide audiences through her talk at the Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) conference and her appearance on Oprah's online Soul Series, Taylor provides a valuable recovery guide for those touched by brain injury and an inspiring testimony that inner peace is accessible to anyone.

Readers' Opinions
Thea Bell
I was refuse to buy the book in this version based on some reviews, but finally decided to pull the trigger. This book seemed like the only official publication that would give it to me, so I finally bought it.
Elaine Leonard
Books like this are usually full of theory and jargon; this is different. It has some of that, but it's minimal and has some detailed information that comes mostly from the writer's own experience. Some chapters have been fundamental, especially when it comes to content, but towards the end.
Katherine Stevenson
Very accessible and relevant. It is innovative and very effective.
