Tommye-Karen Mayer suffered a stroke at the age of 23, and has been managing with the use of one hand in a two-handed world for three decades. After a period of wondering whether she would ever again live independently, she began developing a system for how to do a wide range of everyday tasks ("Activities of Daily Living" or ADLs) with one hand - dressing, eating, cooking, doing household chores, traveling, and much more. In this book, Mayer shares her vast experience, with detailed instructions for hundreds of daily tasks and a guide to the equipment and technology that make them possible to accomplish one-handedly.

Mayer is also the author of Teaching Me to Run, now in its second edition.
