The Brilliance and the Madness: My Journey from Adversity to Empowerment

Author(s): Anne Margaret McKenzie

Personal Development | Health

My non fiction, beautifully illustrated book, my journey of healing, recovery and empowerment after a brain injury sustained from my dreadful cycling accident in Christchurch, 2005.

My book is a down to earth story set amongst the everydayness of family life, along this path of loss and adjustment, the frustration of brain injury, having all aspects of life compromised, the longevity of recovery, the reality of rehabilitation, the whims of ACC . . . all the issues you become confronted by after such a life changing event. It also explains an important point of law which went to the Supreme Court from my case.

Written to raise awareness and encourage others, this is my book of anguish, laughter, thoughtfulness and truth - the brilliance amongst the madness.
