The book about a personal journey through a stroke and out the other side by a brain scientist that made the New York Times bestseller list


My Stroke of Insight: a brain scientist’s personal journey

by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D


Jill Bolte Taylor experienced a stroke when a blood vessel exploded in the left side of her brain. A brain scientist, she observed her own mind deteriorate in a few hours. As the left side of her brain swung in and out of function, she experienced two distinct realities: the euphoric nirvana of the intuitive right brain, as well as the logical awareness of the left brain.

In My Stroke of Insight, Taylor shares the understanding she gained from her journey to recovery. It took eight years, but she has now completely healed her mind. The stroke has taught her that the feeling of nirvana is never more than a thought away from the left-brain chatter that so often sidelines us.

My Stroke of Insight is both a recovery guide for anyone touched by a brain injury and an emotional testimony that deep internal peace is accessible to anyone.
