This review is good and makes me want to read this book. A book about something that is really never talked about. I do wish it was longer then 100 pages but I will definitely read it!

A great book n a wonderful review..often in life we tend to forget about the definition of health...this book sounds as a reminder to us that in a split second an event could change our life and it also gives hope that positivity is the answer to this change..it also adds to the fact that giving support to people would help them confront their fears

The book seems great, and emphasizes what anyone of us or even someone we love could go through. The review was awesome and captured the most important details of the story.

At first, I thought from the title it was a comic novel, but I after reading the review I realise it is a non-fiction. The title is captivating enough but with a review like this, it makes one want to purchase it instantly. It is great to know about personal renderings of individuals who go through traumatic experiences such as this one. His positive outlook on this will certainly help others in similar situations. It, however, is mildly disappointing how this book is not professionally edited and the formatting is confusing. I really hope it gets resolved soon. Splendid review!

Thank you for your review, kandscreeley. Stories like this one make you think about how precious life really is, and that we should strive to do the best we possibly can in whatever we endeavor to do. I, too, have a chronic disease and struggle daily getting through each day. Looking back, I wished I had done things differently, better, more aggressively, more lovingly. . .the list goes on. The Day I Broke My Brain sounds like a good book that I will put on my "want to read" list.

When reading this book I understood the mind an body but what I don't understand is why didn't the author talk more about the brains function an how it balances itself with the body function I wish the author had said more

I love books that are based on personal experiences. Too bad for the errors. However, that will not make me not to read the book to capture the author's story.

What an interesting topic for a book! I admire the bravery involved in sharing such a personal traumatic experience. Despite the needed edits you mentioned, I think I'd still enjoy reading it.

This sounds like a good book. It’s great to be able to look at someone’s life before and after a tragic event and how they over came the opticals. Great review

This sounds like an interesting read. The inescapable truth is that on any given day, anyone could have a similar life-changing accident. Learning how to retreat your life afterward must be a challenge. Thanks for this review.

Wow... What an amazing story. Most times people don't care about how they live their lives and death to them sounds like something for others cos they've had no near experience. But the moment they do, it's as if there's this rush of electrical impulses from the experience that changes them for the better, yet, some deviate from it later in life.. This is a book I'd love to read. Really nice😊
