Stronger After Stroke puts the power of recovery in the reader's hands by providing simple to follow instructions for reaching the highest possible level of healing. Basic concepts are covered, including: * Repetition of task-specific movements * Proper scheduling of practice * Challenges at each stage of recovery * Setting goals and recognizing when they have been achieved The second edition is completely revised throughout incorporating feedback from readers and the latest research data. Peter has written a new chapter on ""recovery core concepts"" that defines the stages of recovery and explains how these stages can structure efforts toward recovery. There is also a new Question and Answer section culled from the talks Peter regularly gives on the subject.

Review quote

"This is a tremendously important book. Peter Levine has carefully and accurately brought together complex research findings from both basic neuroscience and clinical rehabilitation. Not only that, but he has made the material both accessible and enjoyable to read." --Sarah A. Raskin, PhD, ABBP/ABCN, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Program, Trinity College "Recovery from stroke is a lifelong journey. "Stronger After Stroke" by Peter Levine provides a hopeful, practical, and informative roadmap that explains how the brain recovers in the early stages of stroke recovery and guides the reader through lifestyle strategies that will lead to a healthy and happy life after stroke." --Katherine J. Sullivan, PhD, PT, Associate Professor of Clinical Physical Therapy, University of Southern California "This second edition of "Stronger After Stroke" incorporates a straightforward, commonsense, 'outsider' perspective.

Page, PhD, MS, MOT, FAHA, Director, Neurorecovery and Rehabilitation Laboratory; The Ohio State University Medical Center "Brain plasticity is one of the most exciting discoveries ever made because it has implications for everyone. In "Stronger After Stroke," Peter Levine explains how the discovery that the brain can be rewired is bringing new hope to stroke survivors. While this book is aimed directly at stroke survivors I also highly recommend it to all caregivers (including physicians) and loved ones because it contains practical, down-to-earth advice. More importantly, it separates the science from the hype and gathers all the latest information into one easy-to-read volume." --Ginger Campbell, MD, Creator and Host of the Brain Science Podcast, "Author of Are You Sure? The Unconscious Origins of Certainty" Praise for the First Edition: "A Selection of the Americ
