It's All in the Mind

It's All in the Mind is a practical self-help guide for anyone who has suffered a stroke and is seeking information to speed their return to health. It is the author's personal story of having a stroke whilst cycling in the Himalayas, being treated in a military hospital in Tibet, evacuated to Hong Kong and finally brought back to New Zealand. The book describes his determined journey toward rehabilitation and, finally, to getting back on his bike. Included are various practical programmes he developed to stimulate his recovery and maintain the necessary momentum for ongoing improvement. Several chapters focus on mobility, on land and in the water, and on activities for the legs, trunk, arms and shoulders. There is a special focus on exploring issues associated with improving the mind and, in particular, with motivation, positivity and determination. Adapting to the new frustrating challenges of everyday living is also covered. This engaging book also includes a useful 'Notes for carers' section. It's All in the Mind has been endorsed by the Stroke Foundation of New Zealand as a valuable self-help guide. The Foundation required that five medical practitioners approved the content and this has been achieved; some changes have been made as a result of their evaluation and these have added to the book's value.
