From Library Journal:

About six years ago, Siles's good friend Eve suffered and survived a brain aneurysm with significant brain damage. Frustrated with the lack of support and practical advice in the medical establishment, Siles (now a certified professional coach) worked intensively with Eve for the next two years, a time that she wrote about in Brain, Heal Thyself. Since then, Eve (now 65), has made even greater strides, and in her new book, Siles describes the "emotion-based, motivational strategy"-which she named Eureka!-that she developed to help recover and restore Eve's mind, body, and spirit as well as her own. The strategy (which Siles admits is "not very scientific") is based partly on the 12-step program and partly on motivational techniques Siles used in her advertising career. She stresses the role of the subconscious mind as a storage center for healing memories and the keeper of belief and value systems. And she recommends a daily relaxation program for the caregiver. Verdict While most medical professionals prefer evidence-based procedures, this book will inspire and motivate friends and family members who are caring for stroke or brain-injury patients and give them practical tips on improving the lives and abilities of the patients as well as coping with being a caregiver.-Marcia Welsh, Dartmouth Coll., Hanover, NH (c) Copyright 2010.
