Book : My Stroke of Insights

Jill Bolte Taylor is a brain scientist_wsb_177x266_Paperback at Harvard.   Taylor experienced a massive stroke at age 37 when a blood vessel exploded in her left side of her brain. As a brain scientist she was in a unique position to be able to understand the impact of such a stroke.

Rating of the book 9/10. This book has been the book that years ago got me passionate about what the human brain is, what it’s impact is not only human behavior but more importantly how we feel and experience the world.

The book focusses on the importance of the left brain (non-rational) in particular as Taylor “lived” in the non-rational brain for many years before getting back her full brain functions. Once released of the filter of the rational brain one comes to realize how critical emotions are to enrich and balance our lives.
