Words @ the Woodmark - Rebooting My Brain
Thursday, March 29, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (PDT)
Rebooting My Brain is the true story of what happens when you get yanked out of your life by a crisis―and have to get back on the ride all over again. With refreshing candor, humor and heart, Maria Ross shares how the relentless pace of her life came to a screeching halt when an undetected brain aneurysm ruptured and nearly killed her. Along her stubborn road back to health, her resulting cognitive and emotional challenges forced her―sometimes kicking and screaming―to reframe her life, work and identity. Ross reveals the keys to her extraordinary comeback and how her perspective is forever changed, in many ways for the better. Funny, touching and real, this book not only shares an inspirational story of transformation but enlightens readers about the surprising effects of brain injury…and explores the question, “How do our brains define who we are?”
"A captivating, deeply authentic memoir of a devastating illness and a heroic recovery. Maria Ross' memoir Rebooting My Brain is a testament to one woman's personal courage and a reminder that health is a tenuous treasure." –Carol Cassella, best-selling author of Oxygen and Healer
