From the back cover:

It could happen to anyone. One afternoon coming home from the gym, Diane Wilson pulled to a stop at a red light. In an instant, her life changed in ways that could never be reversed. Diane became a person with an invisible injury, that no one would talk about, that affected every second of her life and eventually birthed a new vocation as an applied neuroscientist. 

Brain Dance is a captivating and touchingly candid story. It traces Diane’s journey through random and sometimes humorous events which shed light on how her brain managed to keep her injury from her, the loss of self, mobility, and focus, an obsession with day-trading retirement funds, and finally nontraditional therapies. These include a retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh, acupuncture, singing, and neurofeedback. She chronicles the gift of her recovery as she now helps people all over the world make the most of their amazing brain.
