    "From Black Cabbing to Blackouts" by Ian Starkey

    About the Book:
    Ian Starkey's perfect job and perfect life came crashing down around him. After driving a cab for fifteen years, travelling the world and living life to the fullest, he suffered from a severe stroke, leading to a left-sided weakness and blackouts; he struggles to come to terms with what happened to him and tries to get his life back.

    This memoir shows a surprisingly positive and uplifting story about a London taxi driver's dramatic few years and how he changed his lifestyle to take control of his life.

    Excerpt from the book:
    "It's true that I do miss elements of my former life and it's been a struggle to get back on top of things, but I've worked hard at my physio and concentrated on the positives. This year 2016 was a milestone for me, the thirteenth anniversary of my stroke. I realise how extremely lucky I've been and finally accept that I'll probably always have slight left-sided mobility issues.

    As far as epilepsy is concerned, I'm determined to continue to fight the stigma which still surrounds this condition. I've learnt that alcohol is not my friend, I can't overdo things and I need to be careful with my medication to give myself the best chance of keeping my seizures under control.

    My life so far has been one hell of a ride. I say onwards and upwards, let's see what's next."
