About the Author

Jean-Dominique Bauby was just 43 years old when he suffered a massive stroke. At the time, he was a magazine editor. While the stroke spared Bauby's life and mind, it left him paralyzed. Self-described as "like a mind in a jar," Bauby was unable to move or speak. His only means of communication was mostrar mais his ability to blink his left eyelid. Before this condition claimed his life, Bauby painfully put his experiences and wisdom into the books, The Diving Bell and The Butterfly, by correlating eye-blinking patterns and the French alphabet for transcription.

A lesson of a unique book for carrying all life. An unputdounable story of a man who had a stroke and writes a book blinking his left eye to choose letters and write an unforgettable story. A narrative to reflect on how worth things are in life and how we hard is the value of making wrong decisions.
