Review of The Journey I Don’t Remember by James Shover From Staff Reviewer Johanna

I had the pleasure of working on this book, and it will stay with me for a long time. It’s a true story about James, a regular guy in his thirties, who gets hit in the head by a heavy tool at work one day. When he goes to the hospital, the doctor tells him that it’s just a concussion and to go home and rest.


However, it’s not a concussion that James has suffered. After the accident, he experiences dramatic changes in his personality and painful migraines. This book is about his journey in getting a proper diagnosis and how hard it is to fight a system that doesn’t believe in you. We follow James as he learns how to adapt to living with painful symptoms, new personality traits and accepting that he is a young man who can’t work for a living. Throughout the book, he realises his self-worth and finds routines that make life meaningful.


James Shover writes in a straightforward and authentic way. It’s engaging and relatable, and I look forward to reading more from this author.


This book is for anyone who has struggled with mental health issues, has gone through drastic changes in their lives or knows someone who has. To sum it up—it’s for everyone.
