Barbara Capobianco, M.S. CCC/SLP
I am a speech-language pathologist in an outpatient rehabilitation setting. I have worked with numerous persons with MTBI who so often tell me that they have listened enough to the doctors, the lawyers, etc. and want to hear from someone who "really gets it". David really gets it. If you are a survivor of MTBI, I highly recommend this book. If you are someone who lives with, knows, loves or works with a survivor of MTBI, I also highly recommend you read this book.
Web Review - C. H.
This is an amazing perspective on Traumatic Brain Injury, written by a TBI survivor two years after the accident that left him "permanently disabled." His struggles are heart-breaking but his determination and generosity are inspiring.
For any reader wanting to understand one man's experiences as a result of this injury, I heartily recommend this book. And I celebrate the special mix of intelligence, courage, and talent that allowed the author to share such a remarkable journey.
Web Review - T. G.
This is a well-written and powerful story that sheds light on a "silent epidemic." This book offers tremendous insight into the world of TBI. As a registered nurse, it was helpful for me to read a survivor's story of the challenges that are faced on a daily basis. The author's tenacity is admirable. As we journey with him down the road of recovery, there is message of hope that shines through. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been affected by a TBI.
Web Review - V. D.
As a 10 year TBI survivor David's story made me cry! As I was subjected to so many similar things! I have never heard from another survivor it did my heart good! So, similar yet so different as we are individuals. Thank you David for sharing your journey!!!!

This fills a missing link in the medical community's assistance in dealing with Traumatic Brain Injury. The honesty in David Grant's portrayal of his experiences may give a bone chilling insight into an epidemic in the US today. We have talked to David about our son's TBI following a serious car accident. He is doing his part to help family and friends understand a loved one 's actions and feelings following a TBI. We have purchased 5 copies to give family and friends . The book is easy to read, printed as to assist an individual with brain trauma to read. It Is surprisingly entertaining reading due to David Grant's unfailing optimism and sense of humor. Bless him! This is a good read.
