March is Brain Injury Awareness Month! To celebrate and help spread the word, I’ll be posting a different resource every day all month. Today’s book is I Had Brain Surgery, What Your Excuse? by Suzy Parker.
For years Suzy Becker, author of the “New York Times” bestseller “All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat,” literally lived by her wits. Then brain surgery left her temporarily unable to speak, read, or write. “I Had Brain Surgery, What’s Your Excuse?” grapples with the question “What makes me me?” By turns philosophical and whimsical, rivetingly dramatic and unexpectedly light, it is illustrated with drawings, charts, pseudoserious graphs, real EEGs. The result is a book filled with insights into creativity, identity, love, relationships, family, and that intangible something that gives each of us our spark.
