My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey is an amazing book written by Dr Jill Bolte Taylor describing exactly how it felt to have a stroke, a blood vessel exploded leaving a massive clot on the left cerebral hemisphere of Her Brain. But not only does she describe the effect having a stroke had on her in this book, she also describes how she fought her way back to health. Seeing in s very small way how having a minor stroke has left my husband with a slight speech impediment, I marvel at Dr Jill Boltes recovery, and you only have to watch the video to know that she has made a fully recovery. One reviewer states ‘Dr Bolte takes us on a tour of the mystical right side of her brain which little is known about, and says the right side of the brain is the gateway to enlightenment. Her tips on how to achieve Nirvana or Inner Peace by accessing the right side of the brain is worth the price of the book many times over.
The videos shown below are of her Shows with Oprah discussing the book and her experiences. I have shown the last three in a series of 12 as I felt that it was more significant in understanding the end rather than the beginning, mainly because on the sister website http://healthandfitness4you,net in the article about Dr Jill Bolte called Changing the Size of the Text I showed 2 videos showing Dr Jill Bolte explaining in great detail how the stroke occurred and what she felt when she had it, so thought for this post i would show the later videos with Oprah. I hope I have got this right and this is more helpful to whoever is reading this post.
