This is a book to definitely read. I love books like this it makes you really think about life and how easily it could be taken away from you. It's so good to know people that get a injury that could take their life but survived it and now can tell about it is amazing.

Hmm, "life isn't fair!" Many would cry, but this review shows us a man who was determined to fight to recover what life stole from him. A Tragic event that changes the course of one's life, a want-to-read book for me.

I have been fortunate to not have experienced a TBI, but I can understand where the author is coming from. It also sounds like he is one of the luckier ones. My neighbors' youngest daughter had a TBI during basketball and its changed her personality completely. I also had an instructor that had when she was young, and she mentioned that it impacted her by giving her really bad migraines.

I count my blessings every day that I have my health. Plus I try to live my life to its fullest always.

The day I broke my brain by Darron Eastwell is a powerful novel, best recommended for busy workers. No matter how busy we are, we shouldn't forget our health comes first

We all suffer from different life struggles and we also have different approach to deal with them. I think this story will make readers realize to appreciate and value every breath we take and not take it for granted. This is also very helpful to be able to focus and think things in a more positive way.

Our health is something that we should never take for granted indeed. It is only when we lose something or someone that we truly realize the value. Thank you for a well-balanced review.

Wow. I'm really turned off by books with many typos and all that, but the story of Darron Eastwell got me emotional. I can truly relate with his struggles to return to his previous self and his positivity (something lacking seriously on health victims). The title of the book had left me curious to know how exactly he broke his brain. It's a book for keeps. I'll get my hands on it. It'll encourage me too. Thank you very much for this fine review.
Writing is so much fun. So is reading. :techie-studyingbrown:

Reading this makes me realize it makes sense to go on expeditions with company. The author was very fortunate there were others around to help when he got into trouble at a remote area.

Latest Review: Of Snow by Rhón

Post by LivreAmour217 » 22 Jun 2018, 13:47

This sounds like an inspirational book. Normally I shy away from books with too many typos, but as someone who also suffers from an "invisible" illness, I am very interested in the author's story. Great review!
