"A spellbinding investigation into the mysteries of the human brain, led by a scientist whose tenacity is as remarkable as her story.”
AMANDA RIPLEY, New York Times bestselling author of The Smartest Kids in the World and The Unthinkable
“A superb memoir from a highly respected neuroscientist who is uniquely qualified to describe her titanic battle against malignant melanoma of the brain. Barbara Lipska clearly believes in those miracles that can be achieved through medical science, and also has an iron resolve to survive. Both qualities underpin this remarkable account of sanity lost and regained.”
FRANK VERTOSICK, author of When the Air Hits Your Brain
"An extraordinary chronicle. Barbara Lipska's story is inspiring and painful, but most of all it is a tribute to the human spirit told with the insight of a scientist and the love of a truly compassionate soul. I was hooked from the first page and could not put this down until the final sentence."
