Guest Author Lisa Genova, Ph.D.

Don't you wish that you didn't need to sleep, have to work, have daily responsibilities and just read 24/7 because there are just so many fantastic books that you want to delve into?  I know I do.  I was contacted by Ayelet from Simon and Schuster regarding today's guest.  I read the synopsis and my first thought was FASCINATING and then I looked at my tbr pile and thought, I am just too far behind, but I wanted to hear more about this book, and share it with you.  So I invited Ayelet and the Author to visit.  It is with great pleasure to introduce you to and have NY Times Best Selling Author, Lisa Genova, here today!

Lisa Genova holds a PhD in neuroscience from Harvard University. The author of the New York Times bestselling novel STILL ALICE, she lives with her family in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Synopsis (borrowed from B&N):
Sarah Nickerson, like any other working mom, is busy trying to have it all. One morning while racing to work and distracted by her cell phone, she looks away from the road for one second too long. In that blink of an eye, all the rapidly moving parts of her over-scheduled life come to a screeching halt. After a brain injury steals her awareness of everything on her left side, Sarah must retrain her mind to perceive the world as a whole. In so doing, she also learns how to pay attention to the people and parts of her life that matter most.

In this powerful and poignant New York Times bestseller, Lisa Genova explores what can happen when we are forced to change our perception of everything around us. Left Neglected is an unforgettable story about finding abundance in the most difficult of circumstances, learning to pay attention to the details, and nourishing what truly matters.
