The Diving Bell and the Butterfly: A Memoir of Life in Death - Jean-Dominique Bauby, Jeremy Leggatt When I heard what this book was about I did not want to read it at all. It's about the ex editor of Elle who had locked-in syndrome - ie his body was useless, but his mind worked perfectly and he wrote this book by blinking his left eye lid... Hmmm... However, it was really funny and real and I would say that most people should read it.
