A Stroke of Insight

Imagine experiencing a stroke, and knowing exactly what is happening to you. That's just what happened to brain scientist Jill Bolte Taylor when she suffered a stroke at age 37.
She talks about that experience and what it taught her, as detailed in her book, My Stroke of Insight.
Here is her presentation at TED in 2008.
I didn't read the book, but the presentation is pretty powerful.
