“I had first learned of Phineas in an abnormal psych class in college years ago. Lisa has brilliantly filled in the unknown with her imagination and brought to life the remarkable story of a man who survived a seemingly unsurvivable traumatic brain and skull injury in 1848. I’d like to thank the author for provoking my curiosity about Phineas Gage leading me to read other writings about him as well!” – Bonnie McKeegan
