A quick and fascinating book (2012) by NBC News and Meredith Vieira.
Bravo! to NBC News and Meredith Vieira for taking such a serious and graceful approach to what others took as tabloid.
This is the story of Charla Nash, who was viciously attacked by her friend’s 200-pound chimpanzee in February of 2009.
I read this 85-page book during my lunch break, and could not put it down.
Although the attack was horrible and the injuries severe (understatement), the book does not sensationalize the chimp attack. It also does not share images that are too graphic, though I recommend you proceed with caution.
The book focuses on Charla and the more positive aspects of her situation, such as her will to live. It does touch upon the hard parts of the situation, but all in all it is really a very hope-filled book.
It also shares the story of her incredible face transplant, which I am amazed at how well the doctors did! Truly remarkable!
The book is free on Amazon. I added a link in case you want to read it 🙂
