This book is one of the best for describing strokes, stages of recovery, treatments and rationales for various medical interventions. The author uses medical terms, yet will elaborate on these to help the reader gain a better understanding. I suggest it be in electronic format as many people who suffer a stroke have accompanying paresis of an arm which makes page turning challenging.
