    Description"The Man who Lost His Language" is a compelling exploration of aphasia - the loss of language - as well as of the resilience of love. When Sir John Hale suffered a stroke that left him unable to walk, write or speak, his wife, Shelia, followed every available medical trail seeking knowledge of his condition and how he might be restored to health. Bringing the story up to date, this revised edition includes additional information about updates in science and medicine since the first edition was published. This personal account of one couple's experiences will be of interest to all those who want to know more about aphasia and related conditions.
