Item description for Someone Stole Yesterday by Helene Wright...
In the midst of Mardi Gras festivities in Bolivia, a bright young American was assaulted and robbed. He did survive, but with traumatic brain injury. That night began his second life, for it was the end of his life as he and his family had known it. He had to start from the beginning, learning almost everything over again. A story of miraculous courage and recovery against the greatest of odds, Someone Stole Yesterday touches the soul. From Helene Wright's pen, we come to know her son, Tim, his struggles, and their family bond, which strengthens in the process of recovery.

Good but not the best Apr 29, 2003
This a moving account of a family's struggle to deal with a grown son's head injury, but it suffers from a lack of judicious editing. There is a bit too much repetition and inclusion of unimportant details that detract from the central, compelling story of their son's recovery. I found myself frustrated by descriptions of homes and meals that had little or no bearing on this central story and its powerful message. I think people read these books to learn more about brain injury or to be inspired by the courage and perseverance of the brain injured person. This book accomplishes those goals, but I have read other memoirs that do a better job and make for more focused accounts of the pitfalls and triumphs of the brain injured and their loved ones.

The book was a moving example of what humanity & family should be. Makes me believe that real life heros are still out there
