Mark McEwen was at the top of his game and enjoying life when he suffered a stroke. After fifteen years on The Early Show, he had moved to Orlando to anchor the local news and spend more time with his family. While traveling, he experienced symptoms that led him to a hospital, where he was misdiagnosed with the flu. Two days later, on an airplane flight just hours before he finally collapsed, flight attendants and airport staff discounted his slurred speech and heavy sweating. Misinformation not only delayed his treatment, but it also nearly cost him his life. 

Now in a candid and moving memoir, America’s beloved morning-show weatherman recalls his harrowing journey of rehabilitation from a massive stroke. Change in the Weather traces his recovery in the aftermath of temporarily losing some of his greatest gifts—his talent as a public speaker, and his warm, witty exuberance—while his wife worked valiantly to care for their children as well as her seriously ill husband. Telling an ultimately triumphant story, McEwen also offers extensive insights into the warning signs of stroke as well as prevention and treatment options.
