Mark McEwen's stroke was anything but sudden. His symptoms led him to a hospital, where he was misdiagnosed with the flu. Two days later, on an airplane flight just hours before he finally collapsed, flight attendants and airport staff discounted his slurred speech and heavy sweating, passing him off as intoxicated. Misinformation not only delayed his treatment but nearly cost him his life. A candid, moving memoir, Change in the Weather traces one man's recovery in the aftermath of temporarily losing some of his greatest gifts-his talent as a public speaker and his warm, witty exuberance. Telling an ultimately triumphant story, McEwen also offers insights into the warning signs of stroke as well as prevention and treatment options. Change in the Weather signals a change in America's mind-set, led by one of our most dynamic new crusaders for stroke victims and their families.

Mark McEwen was a fixture on CBS's The Early Show from 1987 to 2002.From AudioFile:
Along with his thoughtful phrasing and appealing vocal resonance, Richard Allen adds a friendly gravitas to this inspiring memoir by genuine nice guy Mark McEwen--the career broadcaster and former CBS weatherman who had a major stroke in 2005. The narrative alternates between McEwen's grueling rehabilitation and his life in an exciting business before the stroke. Though his optimism and humor helped his rehab efforts, he gives most of the credit to outside influences. For McEwen, it was all about family, friends, purpose, and allowing himself to be touched and energized by the dozens of therapists who worked with him. Lucidly written, this is a textured glimpse of the determination one must find when challenged to pick oneself up and redefine what it means to live well. T.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
