While I love the love story of Bob and Lee and I am so happy for
While I love the love story of Bob and Lee and I am so happy for his success and progress in dealing with the TBI, I believe that this book is a fairy tale. My husband also has a TBI. We could not afford the best hospitals and the best doctors; as most people cannot. I think this book gives people a sense that everyone who has a TBI will fully recover which is not the case. Bob's recovery was miraculous. He came back to his wife and children. So many TBI survivors do not. Even Bob is not back to work at his full capacity as they had hoped for in the book and its been several years. I think what happened is this book was written too soon after his accident. Now I think it may be a totally different story. All Traumatic Brain Injuries are different. It depends on what type of injury, what part of the brain is damaged and how quickly the person gets the correct medical help. I thank Bob and Lee for writing this book because it brought a lot of attentention to the world of traumatic brain injury that was not there before the book. For that I am very grateful. But I'd like an honest look into their lives right now. I think we'd get a better insight to the real life of a TBI survivor.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This seemed as if this book was written only as a money maker, since Mr Woodruff will probably not bring in the salary in which this family is accustomed to. In An Instant does not deflect the horrific damage Bob Woodruff and others wounded in war endured, but only tells a slow story of he and his wife's meeting and somewhat ordinary married life told primarily by his wife. This book is a disservice to all of the wounded survivors of war, and those family members of those that did not survive as it only tells of a personal everyday love story when the title indicates otherwise. A VERY DISAPPOINTING READ!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
