This is a remarkable story of an everyday person who overcame a debilitating injury, reclaiming her life and dignity in the process. Joyce's life was disrupted by an auto accident, causing traumatic brain injury (TBI). When attempting to recover medical expenses she confronted a legal system taht assaulted her on several levels, accusing her of "milking the insurance industry" while being sexually harassed by her own attorney! Read how her efforts led to the most significant changes in the rules in 25 years for the Georgia State Bar Association.

You will learn her character consists of a positive mental attitude, refusal of victim status, faith perseverance, courage, fortitude, creativity, and humor. This is a story of triumph over tragedy, not a dry medical term filled book or a how-to-book. It is extremely inspirational for those with TBI, their loved ones and caregivers.

"I knew Joyce Fahl was a winner from the frist day I met her in 1986. Her can-do spirit led her to great success in real estate, and empowers her to covercome the challenges of Traumatic Brain Injury. Joyce is a living example of the power of positive thinking!" US Senator Johnny Isakson, Georgia

"I loved it! Our heroine is the victor, despite the villans that abound in "TBI: Shaken, But Not Stirred." By the end of this page turner, she has overcome her challenges, beaten the legal system and broken the sterotypes that come with traumatic brain injury" Suan H. Connors, President/CEO, Brain Injury Association of America
