    I teach movement. I am used to glossy manuals that cost hundreds of pounds. This manual is less glossy but a fraction of the price I would expect to pay for such a resource – and it has what I need (actually, what my Dad needs). It tells you once you are home what the stroke survivor needs to do and how to go about it. I have read five books so far about stroke and they have all been great. This is the ONLY one that I could find that has practical applications. I plan on going on the ARNI (Action for Rehab from Neurological Injury) instructor training course. Meanwhile I’ll get videos of the exercises (The Essential Stroke Survivor videos 1-6 from the ARNI website) so my Dad can get an idea of what he will be working towards in his recovery. As Tom Balchin makes clear, the survivor’s recovery is in their own hands and is their responsibility. This tool really gives me hope for my father’s rehab.
    This book is a hefty tome (over 500 pages) and the exercises feature on p 177 onwards. This is great for me because I want all the knowledge now. I won’t give it to my Dad though, I think it would be too much. I see that Tom Balchin also has a series of kindle books that break this information up into manageable chunks. The first in a series of five books is ‘Stroke Recovery Essentials (The Successful Stroke Survivor Volume 1)’. This is a very good idea.
