We were recently in contact with a member of staff from an adult day centre in Edinburgh. One of his clients, Stuart Hepburn has just finished writing a book, A Most Curious Detour, which describes his experience of becoming disabled as a result of a massive stroke in 2005. The stroke left him paralysed and unable to communicate. The book describes the impact of the stroke on his life and his encounters with the medical system in Scotland. He also reflects on his past life as a business consultant  and describes some of the dreams he has while in hospital. The book can be seen as a Scottish answer to Jean Dominique Bauby's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and is definitely required reading for anybody wanting to find out more about the impact of an acquired disability on a person's life.

The book can be purchased through the Lulu web site. It is now also available through Amazon. All profits go to charity.
