I loved, loved, loved this book! Narrator Sarah, a Harvard MBA and vice president at a consulting firm, works crazy hours, multitasking every moment, trying to fit everything into her life. Then in the blink of an eye, she loses half of everything--the left half--and then finds that, in many ways, her traumatic brain injury adds value to her life instead of diminishing it. This is a really fascinating portrayal of a character with Hemispatial Neglect (or Left Neglect), by an author with a PhD in neuroscience.
