I've got her book out from the library right now and it's on my "to read" pile. Haven't really started reading it yet but I've glanced through it and I must say much of it is not at all like a trip report as her TED talk was. As a neuroscientist, she's able to talk about the brain in some scientific depth (not just elaborating on the experience like she did at TED) and so the book is pretty informative beyond just the section of it that is essentially a description of her mind boggling experience.

The last section details her recovery as she regained her brains capabilities (can't remember if she mentions this in the video, but there was a lot of long-lasting damage from that stroke that she describes in a way that almost makes one envy her) so hopefully when I read it I'll find some practical information that can be applied by someone who hasn't suffered a stroke!

I'll let you know what I think when I read it.


...who else here has had psychedelic experiences that came to mind while you listened to this talk?

When I say informative I mean to the layman like myself, there's a lot to learn for anyone who hasn't studied neuroscience. I'm sure many people on this forum are interested in the subject but know relatively little about it, like myself - and would find it informative too. Chances are there are some well educated people here too and if there are, they may consider the scientific material and concepts in this book quite basic and not learn much... so when I say informative, I mean for the rest of us smile.gif
