Review-Stonger After Stroke

This is a book that I received from Library Things (LT) Member Giveaways. It is an Advanced Copy and there were some typographical errors which I expected. I found the book quite informative and very useful. Even though I have not suffered a stroke nor am I currently caring for some one I am glad to have had the opportunity to read the book and do my review. I have posted a review on LT and my forum.

Stronger After Stroke is a great book to learn about helping someone that has suffered a stroke. You learn that you should push the limits yet be cautious and always consult your doctor. Peter Levine does a great job of explaining the recovery process in detail. I like how each section was set up the same so you knew what to expect as you read. You first learn the concept/idea and then you learn how it is done. The last part of each section you are given the Precautions that should be taken.

If you consider yourself someone that wants to for armed with information than Stronger After Stroke is a great book to consider. This is the first time that I have ever read a book like this and was very pleased with the outcome of my experience. I feel confident to say that I am more prepared then before and that I can offer advice to someone if it is needed.

Thanks so much for reviewing my book! I appreciate the nice comments.

The editing issues are hilarious to me because, the ONE thing I expected from the publisher was decent copy editing. No such luck! Ultimately, its my responsibility and it reflects on me. Next time I'll know; DIY.

Oh, and if you feel like presenting me a list o' mistakes, that would help (I'm sure you've caught some I have not).

Thank you for the nice comments. There weren't too many mistakes that I can recall off the top of my head. I will try to compile a list of mistakes.
