The one hand used to write this book is the one not impaired by the hemorrhagic stroke Paul Berger suffered in 1985, when he was 36. This memoir on his rehabilitation, written with his wife, reveals a spunky and genuine storyteller. At first, Berger was beaten down by his misfortune and frustrated by the medical community's haphazard efforts to help him. These details are perfectly expressed in the self-deprecating tone of the writing. Johnny Rodriguez's voice sounds weak and timid, but, midway through, one starts to see how well his victim tone, reminiscent of Woody Allen, fits with the author's running-on-ice struggles to get well.
