Book Blurb -- "My Stroke of Insight"

Many know about Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor's experience suffering a stroke from a video of her that went viral on the Web last year. As a neuroscientist herself, her self-analysis of her own condition, even as she was experiencing the stroke, is indeed 'insightful.' Taylor's talk is remarkable and inspirational, while moving to the very edges of science. If somehow you've missed it, give a watch

Her book, "My Stroke of Insight" details more fully the experience outlined in that video and her recovery, and is widely available. A review of it here.

Further, she runs another interesting website expanding on the material and lessons of the book here:
