About the Author
For the past eighteen years, Bob Mandell has battled to recover from a massive stroke that left him living in a nursing home at 53. Incontinent, paralyzed on his dominant side and in a wheel chair, at one point he was unable to speak, think, write, or do much of anything else. His life was clearly problematic!
Fast forward to today, the wheelchair and cane are gone! Both he and his wife, Debbie, travel the globe while continuing to explore new stroke rehabilitation techniques, both for himself, and his community.
With this book as a platform, he has begun to play a motivational speaking role while advocating for more focus and understanding of stroke, its survivors, and their caregivers. He is also developing a new non-profit foundation, The Stroke Research Foundation to raise money to increase the level of stroke research.
He received his MS Degree in Business from Penn State and a BBA from Pace University in New York. Previous to his stroke, he was a corporate executive, a partner in an international management consulting firm, an Adjunct Instructor at Fairfield University and an entrepreneur.

This book is needed and must get in the hands of everyone – even those not touched by stroke, because the principals in this book truly empower a patient and their caregivers to go beyond the basics and get the very best support and treatments.
Certainly this is a book for anyone who is or knows someone recovering from a stroke. You went above and beyond to provide a very deep holistic and realistic view of how one can educate themselves on all options available including traditional health care, alternative services, nutrition and mindset. Cheers to YOU, Bob. This book will serve masses!!
