Brain Injury Isn't Funny (But Humor Helps You Cope)

If anyone ever had a reason not to laugh, author Bill Jarvis would be first in line. While a college professor at Taylor University in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Dr. Jarvis was involved in a serious car collision. Diagnosed with a severe TBI and multiple fractures, he was in a coma for five weeks, followed by a hospital stay of 1 1/2 years. Bill picked up the pieces and has worked fervently to make his new life as rewarding and fullfilled as he possibly could - and he’s done quite well, considering what he’s been through.

After all of this, Bill has held onto one of his primary (and most critically important) qualities...his sense of humor! In his new book, Brain Injury Isn’t Funny, Bill takes a light-hearted approach to a serious subject, and lifts hopes (and eyebrows) for all who read it – whether they’re a TBI survivor or not.

Final Reflections on Brain Injury

Final Reflections is the final book in popular “Here and Now” columnist Mike Strand’s “Meditations” Trilogy (Meditations on Brain Injury, Expanded Consciousness, and Final Reflections), all of which are available through Lash Publishing. Final Reflections contains the culmination of Mr. Strand’s nearly thirty-year journey living with a severe brain injury that resulted when his pickup truck was t-boned by a semi-truck. Final Reflections contains over 50 short essays that consider brain injury from every angle. The author has seen brain injury not only through his own experience, but through listening to numerous experiences from those who’s stories have entered his mind and touched his heart as he participated in, and then facilitated numerous support groups. We all share a common experience in our own way, and Mike has a natural gift with words that allows him to express the many frustrations and emotions in clear language, often with humor. He also realizes that sunny expressions and breezy quotations, while they have their place, are a dime a dozen. His lines are from the heart and his words ring true. He talks about finding the real world tools an individual can access to confront the here and now.
