Prognosis: A Memoir of My Brain Reviews

  • Rebekah
    Not your typical white woman memoir of healing and redemption. Vallance's rendering of her life is told with brutal honesty and minimalist mush which just happen to include moments of humour and tenderness when confronted with the various faces of death. I laughed when I wanted to cry and vice versa...
  • Kira
    This is a work of phenomenal power. Vallance's story is one of courage and tenacity, revealing the need for a better understanding of Traumatic Brain Injury and its terrifying consequences. With wit and intelligence, Vallance chronicles her journey through experiences that would cause a lesser indiv...

    If you like Oliver Sack's article about face-blindness (New Yorker) or his books (particularly Uncle Tungsten and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat), you will love this book.Before I get into why this is an amazing book: I've seen a few reviews by people who gave an unthinking criticism of the ...

    Sarah had a good life. She was well on her way to getting her doctorate degree. She was very intelligent and scholastic things came easy to her (with the exception of math).

Like Sarah, many others tried to talk me out of my struggle. Among other things, I lost the ability to determine befor...

    This was a free Amazon Prime First Read selection for July. I feel a little apathetic giving 2 stars to someone who penned a memoir about recovering and living with a traumatic brain injury. But I’m keeping it real. While I can admire Sarah Vallance for sharing and relating her calamitous accid...
  • Lisa Van Gemert
    I wanted to like this book, I really did. Unfortunately, I didn't. I wanted to understand TBI better, which is why I picked it up, but I just couldn't get past the shocking selfishness of the author. She was so incredibly hypocritical in so many ways ("I love dogs so much, so much...here, let me hav...
  • Kay
    I read this because of Kindle First Reads and, if it hadn't been free, I'd want my money back.Vallance comes off as a heartless ass, using others so she can get whatever she wants and emotionally abusing her partners. Actually, everyone but Louise in this book seems to be kind of terrible. What can ...
