Synopsis: A survivor's true account of the events associated with critical brain trauma, a story readers are not likely to encounter every day. The author's unique exploits battling the effects of a severe head injury have the capacity for mass readership because of the diverse, compelling range of physical, cognitive, emotional, and societal symptoms typical of this malady.
About the Author: The recognition I have received by the regional Pittsburgh, Pa. television, national magazine, and area newspaper medias after writing a critically acclaimed book about my one-of-a-kind recovery after sustaining a traumatic brain injury has been very flattering. My published book, Against All Odds (A Look Through the Eyes of a Survivor), an autobiography by Craig W. Meyers, M.S., is a true account of my experience being a comatose 18-year-old college freshman, struggles during rehabilitation, efforts to overcome prejudice/discrimination, and inspirational recovery following a severe head injury. Personally caught within the turbulence of this disability, I detail the rare cognitive, emotional, societal, and psychological disturbances one commonly experiences with the onset of a critical brain trauma insult. Amongst a host of other symptoms, literally forgetting how to walk, talk, write (agraphia), climb up and down steps, sit down, chew solid food, swim, and process what was occurring in the world because much of what I learned during childhood was no longer remembered, I provide firsthand documentation of the effort required in order to overcome the seemingly infinite mental and physical hurdles faced when doing battle with the symptoms of a mind twisted of its ability to comprehend. Depicting how courage, strength, support, determination, and acceptance facilitate one’s outlook and restoration, I outline how these key elements are essential in order for progress to occur. A survivor’s descriptive chronicle of the events associated with severe brain trauma not being a story readers are likely to encounter everyday, this author’s unique exploits confronting the ravages of a brain contusion would seem to have the potential for mass readership because of its exclusivity and enlightening qualities. Portions of my literary endeavor not being events I could possibly recollect directly because of my distress an aspect of this work which can only enhance its interest,
