Haloman: A Memoir of Survival Against All Medical Odds tells the story of a man who wakes up in the hospital after eight days of being in a medically induced coma. He neither has memory of falling and breaking his neck nor of the risky and life threatening neck surgery that followed. No stranger to medical adversity, his discovery of what’s happened to him is the beginning of his struggle – against all medical odds – to insure that his life isn’t shattered by this traumatic injury.

A fantastic read and truly inspiring, however I expected more detail on the TVs in the conference room and the problems with the way Crestron handles audio output (especially from Surfaces and Thinkpads) and I think that the failure to mention how much tequila is actually consumed was a miss. However, in all other ways it was a fascinating and compelling look inside the tiny typeface and baffling layout of Matt's slides.
I can't possibly say enough about this book. It is so moving. It is written with such bravery, courage, and humor that I could not stop reading it. Every chapter is an experience in and of itself.
It tells the story of a man who fought with courage and strength against many odds to overcome a series of intense physical traumas. The lessons he learned along the way about himself, the world, and other people, are profound. He shares himself throughout the entire book so deeply. He shares with you what kept him going.
You get to know, very well, all the people in his life. His wife, his friends, his doctors, teachers, his therapist. The book is a tribute to all of the people who helped him and cared for him throughout his struggles.
Mostly, you become inspired by his strength, his humor, and his will to not only survive, but thrive in every way.
It is inspiring and humbling to read this book. It is a must read for anyone who has...
Haloman is an easy read about Alan's medical journey dealing with a fractured neck (fortunately his spinal cord is not damaged). Alan's great sense of humor shines throughout the book, yet you feel his and his wife's hardships. Don't read it before you go to bed or you will lose sleep. You just have to keep reading it to see what happens!
