This easy to read book introduces in a compassionate way a better understanding of stroke for the patients, the family, and the care givers.
I have co-authored a book in the past with Dr. Williams. Heartquake: Songs for Healing. I thought I knew him his style in prose and poetry. However, his compassionate and concise `Stroke Diaries' has re-introduced him to me as a gentleman-physician, who knows how to deliver messages like a story teller.
I congratulate the human race for been blessed with people like Dr. Williams, whose relentless efforts at delivering quality care to his patients while educating all of us, will make a positive impact in our ways and approach to a disease that has multiple pathways in presentation, treatment and recovery.

Composed in equal parts of brief narratives and pertinent information, this new book by neurologist Olajide Williams is a welcome addition to the small but growing literature about stroke that aims at a general readership. In the course of 17 "episodes" gleaned from his practice, Williams outlines risk factors, describes stroke types and subtypes, and develops a series of brief stories that illustrate the human cost of a disorder that is relatively neglected, considering it is not only the third most common cause of death but also the most prevalent cause of adult disability. Williams does not neglect the use of tPA (tissue plasminogen activator), the only FDA-approved drug for treating stroke, which could be used with many more patients if knowledge that "time is brain" was more widely disseminated. Originally educated in Nigeria and today a neurologist at Columbia University Medical Center, Williams combines a refreshingly humane understanding of patient dynamics with accurate and thoughtful use of statistics and helpful illustrations. The book has a foreword by Ralph L. Sacco MD, who in July 2010 will become president of the American Heart Association.

Stroke Diaries: A Guide for Survivors and their Families
You will most definitely be glad you read this book! As a stroke survivor myself, I cannot say enough about the "treatment" Dr. Williams illustrates through his characters and their inner dialogue. His compassion and level of understanding shine through in each and every eloquently written word. As a physician, he shows the rare ability to understand the core of the human spirit inside both a stroke victim and a caregiver. It's because of doctors like him that survivors such as I are still here to testify. Once you start reading, you won't put it down...and he even incorporates medical definitions and illustrations to help give us a window into the clinical side. What a wonderfully gifted man, doctor, writer and educator! All I can say is THIS IS A "MUST READ". You'll understand stroke like never before. Kudos to you, Dr. Williams, for your insight and honesty!!!

This book is a great, quick read for anyone affected by stroke. It's written almost in a short-story format - each chapter starts with a captivating story about someone who's experienced stroke.

It's easy to read and has just the right amount of medical explanation for you to really understand what's going on. I'd recommend this for anyone who is concerned about stroke, has experienced a stroke, or is supporting a family member or friend who's had a stroke. It really is a beautifully written medical book (who knew such a thing existed?!!!?).
