MY STROKE OF INSIGHT A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey

by | Read by Jill Bolte Taylor

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Listeners will find Taylor's story scary and insightful, and not for the faint of heart, as she tells listeners of her experience with a brain aneurysm and her recovery. She covers both the emotional and physical aspects of her illness, as well as its physiology. Sounding like a friend giving advice and sometimes like a teacher instructing a student, Taylor tells her story not only to those who also may have had a stroke, but to their families, friends, and colleagues. Her passion comes through in her narration, both for the subject matter itself, and for her life mission to warn others of how strokes happen, how to identify the symptoms, and the need to get help quickly, as well as to share her experience of the brain's miraculous ability to recover.
