Aphasia is an invisible disability. It has a profound impact on people's lives. This book is the first one I have seen that discusses the challenges of aphasia in the words of people who are living with it. If you are trying to wrap your head around the meaning of aphasia or want some insight into that world, read this book! It is written in plain English, free of jargon or professional language, with lots of life stories that illustrate the major points.
