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.
Tommye-Karen Mayer survived a stroke at the age of 23 and has been managing single-handedly 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 accomplish a wide range of everyday activities of daily living one-handedly ? dressing, eating, cooking, doing household chores, traveling, and much more.

One-Handed in a Two-Handed World is known as the "bible" for occupational therapists and other healthcare and rehabilitation professionals who work with patients who are temporarily or permanently one-handed. This is the only book of practical advice for managing activities of daily living one-handedly. It may be used by individuals who have experienced strokes or traumatic brain injury, had shoulder surgery, were born without an arm or hand, need to rest an arm for repetitive strain injuries, or have lost the use of an arm or hand as the result of injury.

It is a practical guide to a wide variety of useful devices and technology, and provides step-by-step instructions on how to accomplish each task discussed. Numerous figures show useful tools to make the tasks easier.
