Death didn't find Kara Swanson the day the minivan careened into her own car, but the head injury she sustained changed her life forever. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is not a laughing matter, but the author presents her painful tale in an Erma Bombeck-like style that wraps the hard information in humor and gentle playfulness. Alongside Kara's inspirational sense of humor, medical and legal professionals offer technical input and practical advice to those dealing with or helping someone through the aftermath of brain injury. This funny and informative book will help countless others find their way to a new life, and know that they are not alone on the journey.

User Review  - Christine - Goodreads

An amazing book by an amazing woman! I had the pleasure of meeting Kara at a Brain Injury Association event a few years back. She was the keynote speaker. I was astonished by her story and sense of humor and couldn't wait to read her book. I'm honored to have a signed copy. Read full review
