It is estimated that there are up to 30 strokes every minute throughout the world.*

A stroke can be fatal or disabling, while others are purely temporary with a recovery time of less than 24 hours. Whatever the case, a stroke is always serious and as well as having physical and mental consequences for the sufferer, it can also have a significant effect on other family members.

This book gives the basic information needed to understand what a stroke is, how to spot the risk factors that may contribute to a stroke, and how to take steps to deal with the repercussions, including details on:

* What happens in a stroke
* The different types of stroke
* Stroke recovery and rehabilitation
* Medication and aids and equipment for independent living
