I enjoyed her TED talk much more than her book.

An audiobook read by the author is always a treat to listen to. This memoir about science, ambition, compassion, and creativity is a masterstroke.

I found this audiobook extremely enlightening and I continue to be fascinated and amazed by the brain's plasticity. I found her personal account of stroke, recovery and reflection magnificent and I loved hearing it in her voice. What a remarkable woman to take a devastating experience and turn it into such positivity.

Surprisingly inspiring. The unexpected piece here is how the author's experience with her own brain and her knowledge of brain anatomy combine to give her insight into how to manage life well. I really liked it.
