Newsman Mark McEwen's strokes were 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 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. This candid, moving memoir 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. Though stroke is the number-one cause of disability among adults in the United States--and the third-leading cause of death--it is also one of the least discussed conditions. Telling an ultimately triumphant story, McEwen offers insights into the warning signs of stroke as well as prevention and treatment options.--From publisher description.
