It For That When One Considers Thefor that when one considers the under which it was composed And considering that Bauby packs A Family All Her Own a hefty punch in such short page count it is well worth the experienceGrade A This book involves 28 short stories or you can say pieces of memory from the former editor of French Elle magazine Jean Dominiue Bauby who was permanently paralyzed The Vintners Letters after severe stroke His only way of communication was by blinking his left eye Bone Deep and that was how he patiently spelled this book out As he put itnd I firmly believed in him

In my head I churn over every sentence ten times delete word Compromised Miss addn The Killing Rule (Super Bolan, adjectivend learn my text by heart paragraph by paragraph There was no particular order for the topics in this book nor was there The Chefs Choice any certain connectionmong them What made it precious for me is how detailed Jean Dominiue depicted of what he saw what he hearddespite his serious hearing disorder The Family Way and most important ofll what he felt He was suddenly forced to embrace his new life fter the misfortune but it s rather impressive that he didn t think so sometimes Although I could feel the helplessness in his voice nd the eagerness of freedom when he was comfined to n unfamiliar wheelchair just like diving bell waiting to be opened up there were times he really enjoyed himself in spite of his disability In The Darkest Facts a nutshell he chose to be carefree butterfly making his spirit live on forever without burden Having the Bachelors Baby and

The Diving Bellnd the Butterfly is definitely The Frenchmans Marriage Demand a must read in lifend I highly recommend it to everyone The original version is in French Le Scaphandre et le Papillon Black Children and I found the translation one captured his meanings pretty well By the way I can t putn end to this review without uoting something worth valuing so here it is Capturing the moment these small slices of life these small gusts of happiness move me deeply than A Kiss at Midnight/New Year at the Bosss Bidding/Slow Dance with the Best Man/The Greek Doctors New-Year Baby all the rest After suffering catastrophic cerebro vascular stroke Jean Dominiue Bauby wakes up with A Texas Rangers Christmas a rare condition knowns locked in syndrome Reduced to only being The Bosss Double Trouble Twins able to move his left eyelid to communicate he takes us through his days following the eventnd his struggle to regain his identity I ve wanted to read this for The Cowboys Way (The Good, the Bad and the Texan, a long time but have never felt in the right frame of mind to read it I work within neurosciencesnd The Cowboys Way / Snowed in with Her Ex a lot of our patients have either had
