Also included is a sample recovery schedule, a helpful glossary of frequently used stroke recovery terms, and a list of resources for listeners to research emerging stroke recovery options.

Narrators voice was patronising and the book made me more anxious.

I’m not sure about all the rave reviews on this book. I found the narrators voice very patronising. Plus the book itself made my post stroke anxiety worse. I was looking for something to give me a bit of reassurance and hope that things would get better. Instead I was left feeling undermined by the narrators voice. From the content of the book I was left feeling anxious and even more helpless than when I started. So I had to stop listening. Def not helpful for my stroke recovery.

Wise advice

Particularly liked the ‘use it or lose it’ ethos where it’s up to stroke survivor to work hard in rehabilitation to achieve maximum recovery. I also luke how the author encourages safety and managing fatigue whilst on this journey to get best results. About to listen a second time to bed down the learnings.

Robot reading a list

Hard to engage in this book, narrator keeps the same tone throughout, reading sentences like a list. May be helpful for the patient with lower health literacy, as a reading book.
