Good for anyone who hasnt done any previous researchReviewed in the United States on 24 October 2012
I suffered a brain aneurysm hemorrhage on 8-13-12 and was life flighted to a major hospital for emergency brain surgery. I was very fortunate to receive immediate treatment and Thank God I didn't suffer any severe side effects. After being in the hospital for almost a month, I was discharged home with orders for home health, physical therapy, and speech therapy for my short term memory loss issues. I found myself having more and more questions every day about my recovery process: how long am I going to suffer headaches/fatigue/weakness/dizzy spells; how long am I on a weight lifting restriction of only 5 pounds; when can I start driving again etc etc. I scoured the internet in search of some guidance for my recovery process. I found plentiful information about what aneurysms are, what a ruptured aneurysm is and the effect it has on you, and also the different treatment options. I found NO information detailing what to expect in the recovery process. So I found this book, which touts that it has an entire chapter dealing with recovery. I got really excited and ordered right away. As soon as I got the book in the mail, I turned right to that chapter...and was sorely disappointed. The chapter detailed the different therapies you might undergo (physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy) plus some new-age medicine options. That's it. Nothing at all what I was looking for. I read the rest of the book and there was nothing that I hadn't already learned from my research on the internet. Very well written and easy to understand for those looking for the information I mentioned... Just sadly didn't answer my personal questions.

Great!Reviewed in the United States on 25 January 2014
This was a very inexpensive and fast (via Kindle) way to put my Mom at ease before she went to the Brain Surgeon for her consultation after the CT scan showed that she had an 2mm aneurysm. For all she knew, she was going to have to go into brain surgery, without really knowing the problem or any background in it. Spetzler does a thorough job of showing what brain aneurysms are without getting too deep. My Mom at 70 scanned through the material in an hour whereas I read it through in about 5 hours. Of course there are tons of medical websites like Mayo Clinic's that do an okay job of explaining aneusyms, but the book covers a lot more! The book does not have survival/standard of living data after surgery so its still hard to make an informed choice. After meeting with the brain doctor, my Mom is just going to get an MRI every six months.:)
