From neuroscientist and bestselling author Lisa Genova comes a story of resilience in the face of a devastating diagnosis. After a car crash leaves a vibrant mother in her thirties with a traumatic brain disorder called “left neglect,” she learns what truly matters most in life.

Sarah Nickerson, like any other working mom, is busy trying to have it all. One morning while racing to work and distracted by her cell phone, she looks away from the road for one second too long. In that blink of an eye, all the rapidly moving parts of her over-scheduled life come to a screeching halt. After a brain injury steals her awareness of everything on her left side, Sarah must retrain her mind to perceive the world as a whole. In so doing, she also learns how to pay attention to the people and parts of her life that matter most.

In this powerful and poignant New York Times bestseller, Lisa Genova explores what can happen when we are forced to change our perception of everything around us. Left Neglected is an unforgettable story about finding abundance in the most difficult of circumstances, learning to pay attention to the details, and nourishing what truly matters.

    As a woman who once was a working mother, I could really relate to this story. Be sure to listen to the prologue at the end, it is very enlightening.

  • Cathy Brennon

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned new things about something I had not heard about before. Fascinating and well written. I could relate to so much of this girls too busy life and the way life brings you to a standstill and you have to listen and get the real message. Very inspiring and challenged some stereo type ideas of 'success'. Good narrator and very enjoyable book. I will look out for more of Lisa Genova's books as a result of reading this one

  • Sundarsingh Amos

    Very well written, with details of hectic life, dreams, all impacted by a life changing crisis and a great ending of readjustment. Well narrated, as well!

  • Anna Kazakova

    I expected a little bit more from this book, but it is still well written as everything by Lisa Genova!

  • Andrea Jones

    A good read. Dragged a bit in the middle and left a couple dangling points without closure. Worth the read though

  • Holly Harrison

    Frightening and heartwarming tale, as it could happen to you at any time. I had very little exposure to the world of brain traumas before this novel and it was interesting to see how one day, one accident, one moment can change your life forever. Definitely a great book that not only exposes inner body function and connection of our minds, but also acts as a reminder to count your blessings along with how being strong and connected through love can get you through life`s most complicated challenges.
