Join the Stroke Victor from his days as a paralyzed, hiccupping, aphasic, massive stroke survivor living in a Connecticut nursing home to journeys to Australian and New Zealand vineyards where he and his caregiver wife enjoyed wine tastings and tours, jet boating in Tasmania, Americas Cup practice sailing and music at the Sydney Opera House. And what’s really important – you can make strides also!

Survivors should read this book. Family members, especially spouses and partners, particularly those who are the caregivers, should read this book. And so, should doctors to get a patient perspective.
