Cortical plasticity researcher Levine takes the neuroplastic model of stroke recovery from the scientific books and journals and shows how it can help stroke survivors rewire their damaged brain to recover their cognitive abilities. Without mentioning the date of the first edition, he says that this one integrates recent insights from psychology, psychiatry, rehabilitation, exercise science, and neuroscience. He covers stroke recovery essentials, recovery hints and tricks, safeguarding the recovery investment, cool treatment options, elements of exercise essential to recovery, recovery strategies, spastic control and elimination, motivation as recovery fuel, and recovery machines.

This book is one of the best for describing strokes, stages of recovery, treatments and rationales for various medical interventions. The author uses medical terms, yet will elaborate on these to help the reader gain a better understanding. I suggest it be in electronic format as many people who suffer a stroke have accompanying paresis of an arm which makes page turning challenging.
