Emerging From the Dark

★★★★★ “Terence Ang has written a wonderful book. Strokes can be debilitating – or they can be dealt with in a way that allows people to continue to live happy and productive lives. He says it best: “I want to raise awareness that anyone can suffer a stroke. I also want to tell fellow victims, as well as their caregivers and loved ones, that they are not alone. There is help and there is hope.” I encourage anyone who has had a stroke, or has a loved one who has, to read this wonderful book.” – Paul Brandus – Columnist for USA Today and Dow Jones/MarketWatch, acclaimed author and an award-winning member of the White House press corps ___ What does it feel like to have a stroke? How do you move forward in a body that will never be the same? Having a stroke is one of most people’s worst fears. But the truth is a stroke is a common medical issue. Most of us have no real idea what a stroke feels like or what it takes to recover from one. Our fear often has us pull away from people who most need our help and support. Even medical professionals often fail to fully grasp what it takes to recover from a stroke or how much energy and grit that journey takes. In his first book, A Cry in the Dark, author Terence Ang shared his moving story of stroke recovery with us. In this new book, Emerging from the Dark, Ang has assembled a collection of moving stories from people in all stages of stroke recovery. In these pages, you will find tales of unimaginable courage and determination. Most of all, these are stories of fighters. These are people who reject the idea of being a victim. Instead, they are fighting with everything they have to return to a normal daily life, even if the new normal is different from their old normal. This book will change the way you see people recovering from strokes! These are positive people with positive stories. They don’t want or need pity—they just want their stories to be heard. Order your copy today, because the odds are that one day you or someone close to you will experience a stroke and this could be the most important book you will ever read!

Meet Terence Ang

Terence Ang was a man used to being the one calling the shots and having full control of his life. When he had a stroke in August 2020, the largest electronics and home appliances company in Singapore at the time had him in charge of digital marketing and e-commerce. It was a rude shock for him to suddenly need to depend on others, and this experience resulted in his first book, A Cry in the Dark. In the process, he made new friends and also overcame new challenges. This led to his second book, incorporating stories of other stroke survivors with his own hand-drawn illustrations that powerfully sheds light on life after a stroke. As a stroke survivor, he wanted to make a difference in someone’s life through his own journey with the hope of providing a positive outlook as one navigates everyday life. This new book Emerging From the Dark has received multiple accolades from readers who were touched and inspired by his resilience. His journey of recovery continues as he works on his third book, which will be launched later this year.
