Glad you managed to find a copy.

Since a friend of ours had a brain hemorrhage a year ago I was given a book called My Stroke Of Insight by a lady called Jill Bolte Taylor. It was about how she had a massive stroke at 37 and documents how it happened on the day and her recovery. It was an amazing read and has taught me so much about the brain.
