And a Bang on the Ear: Reclaiming My Life After a Brain Injury by Phil Quinlan & Steve O'Rourke


Phil Quinlan was a sports-mad fifteen year old when he packed his bag one Sunday morning in 1989 to play a game of football. A clash of heads on the pitch changed his life forever.

Falling into a coma, he was given a twenty-five-percent chance to live. He regained consciousness six weeks later, waking to a world filled with pain.

Full of hope and humour, rage and despair, this is Phil's story of chronic pain and rehabilitation, travelling the globe and finding love. A hugely inspirational tale of determination to overcome the results of a devastating injury.

Through all the hurt, rage and rehabilitation, trials and tribulations, he's living the dream now…
