Appearances can be deceiving ! It is very challenging to the patient himself/ herself and the family, to deal with the ailments that hit you in the core and leave no trail on the outside. Sounds like a gripping and thoughtful read.

Eastwell picked up his sleeves even after a traumatic injury. The damage did not derail his ambitions but instead led a normal life with a blend of therapy sessions. This is a good motivation book.

Excellent review on this touching account of how one young man's life changed in an instant. It was not quite what I was expecting when I saw the title. When I read what his life was before that fateful day it was heart wrenching to think about his long and arduous road to being as well as he could be and learning to cope with TBI. I am glad he had the support of family and friends, particularly those who also know what it is like to live with TBI.

Hopefully, this book although short, can serve as an inspiration to others.

Brilliant review. I like books with a message written from personal perspective, not only offers the reader a journey through other person's struggles, but also enhances their understanding of life in general.

Great review! I can't imagine being in a tragic incident like that, it must take immense courage and strength of mind to write about your experiences especially after a traumatic injury.

This is a great book especially on today's generation. People think that mental illness is a joke but in reality it is one of the main issue our world is having right now. This book will change people's perspective about mental issues. And ofcourse in the beginning, it's so catchy. Nice work :D

Thanks for the great review! Traumatic brain injuries are a very under-represented condition that needs more attention and study. It sounds like a very interesting book, but maybe I will wait until it goes through another edit.
