The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Written by the editor of Elle magazine following a severe, incapacitating stroke who wrote this book letter by letter with his speech therapist. It describes his experience of being in hospital, poor communication of healthcare staff & being objectified. Written eloquently about coming to terms with loss of his previous life and learning to live in a new way it is a 'must read' for anyone considering a caring profession. I defy anyone to read this and not feel moved yet empowered to change towards holistic, person-centred practice.
