An uplifting look at the neuroplasticity of our brains and our human ability to grow and change

Alison Bonds Shapiro suffered two debilitating and nearly fatal strokes in her fifties. Healing into Possibility chronicles her experience of learning, through trial and error, that her attitude would play the most important role in her remarkable recovery. In this touching book, Shapiro teaches simple principles that anyone can use when faced with illness, injury, or any other seemingly insurmountable problem to transform despair into hope and dead ends into possibilities.

And it could be an inspiring source of support for anyone on a feasible but unpredictable path of recovery for whom the principal ingredients for sustaining their diligence are tenacity and true grit.”
— Sylvia Boorstein, PhD, author of Happiness Is an Inside Job
