If you are current with the news you have probably noticed that there has been a lot of discussion regarding traumatic brain injury.  The topic comes up often in regard to professional athletes and repeated concussions, but there are so many other people who also deal with the devastating effects and the often difficult recovery process.

One of these people is Bob Woodruff, the news reporter who was injured by a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq.  Luckily, Bob survived his injuries, but his life will never be the same.  His dramatic story has put a face to a struggle that so many people are dealing with every day.

It is said that in America there is a traumatic brain injury occurrence every 18.5 seconds.  That statistic means that most people have had their lives impacted in some way by TBI.  The purpose of this Chicken soup for the soul book is to reach out with support, advice and inspiration to those who have been injured and their loved ones.

There is a forward by Mr. Woodward's wife, Lee, and ten chapters of stories.  Here is how they are arranged.
  1. But You Look so Normal
  2. Self-Discovery
  3. Never Giving Up
  4. Healing Power of Mother Nature
  5. Acceptance
  6. A Family Affair
  7. Attitude is Everything
  8. Coping Strategies That Work 
  9. Opportunity Knocks
  10. Making a Difference
