Summary

Whilst preparing for his travel adventures into a world he had yet to explore, Christopher Yeoh was involved in a road traffic accident and experienced something few others would be "privileged" to witness. Eight days in a coma, more than a year in and out of hospital and a gradual re-introduction to the world of work.

A Different Perspective After Brain Injury: A Tilted Point of View is written entirely by the survivor, providing an unusually introspective and critical personal account of life following a serious blow to the head. It charts the initial insult, early rehabilitation, development of understanding, the return of emotion, moments of triumph and regression into depression, the exercise of reframing how a brain injury is perceived and a return to work. It also describes the mental adjustments of awareness and acceptance alongside the physical recovery process.

Readily accessible to the general public, this book will also be of particular interest to professionals involved in the care of people who have had significant brain injuries, brain injury survivors, their families and friends and also those who fund and organise health and social care. This unique author account will provide a degree of understanding of what living with a hidden disability is really like.
