“A refreshingly candid look into the experiences of stroke survivors, Emerging From the Dark by Terence Ang is both informative and inspiring. Arranged as a series of essays, the book uses original illustrations as a companion to the text in order to examine myriad topics faced by stroke survivors: physical and mental health, depression, loneliness, as well as the determination to get better and start a new life. Powerful and unabashed in its comprehensive overview of what people might face, this is a book for anyone who is struggling after a stroke and needs some inspiration, as well as for caregivers and family members who wish to better understand one of the most life-changing health conditions.” Self-Publishing Review
