Product Description

Scott Bolzan has achieved tremendous success in life as an NFL football player, professional pilot, owner of a thriving aviation and charter management company, and devoted family man. Or so he's been told.

In December 2008, forty-six year old Scott suffered a traumatic brain injury that caused a rare and permanent amnesia. Now, Scott and his wife of twenty-seven years, Joan, share their story of starting over. Part medical mystery, part love story, and part inspirational memoir, My Life, Deleted is an extraordinary look at what defines a person, a marriage, and a family.

Publisher's Description

Scott Bolzan went to work on December 17, 2008, like any other Wednesday. By that afternoon, he'd lost every memory of his past.

Awakening in a hospital with no memory of who he was or how he got there, the forty-six-year-old didn’t know that the petite blonde at his side was his wife of twenty-four years, Joan—or even what a wife was. He couldn’t remember the births of his two young-adult children, the daughter he’d lost, his time as an offensive lineman for the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, or his flourishing aviation career.

Scott’s life and the lives of everyone who loved him were forever changed when he slipped, hit his head, and lost consciousness in his office bathroom, suffering one of the most severe cases of permanent retrograde amnesia on record. With heartrending honesty and no shortage of humor, the Bolzans share their remarkable journey as Scott navigates his way through a now-unfamiliar world. The challenges are initially overwhelming: Scott’s debilitating headaches, his relearning of social etiquette (taking cues from The Sopranos!), Joan’s grief over the loss of the man she married and their shared history, the financial burden of Scott’s lost income, his mounting medical bills, and the agony of their twenty-year-old son’s struggles with drug addiction.

But remarkably, My Life, Deleted is above all else a celebration of extraordinary perseverance, and of the enduring love that emerges when we are most tested. Scott learns to trust his intuition in a way few people ever will, while Joan taps into a well of patience and resourcefulness she didn’t know she had. Throughout it all, what unfolds—against all odds—is an enviable romance as Scott and Joan fall in love all over again.

Both gut-wrenching and brimming with optimism, the Bolzans’ captivating story makes a powerful statement about commitment—and the possibility of finding extraordinary opportunity in life’s greatest challenges.

Publisher's Weekly

Bolzan, who briefly played with the Cleveland Browns, tries to make sense of his life when, after an accidental slip, he suffered memory loss. His fluke brain injury meant that everything he knew about his previous 46 years was wiped clean, and he was left with unbearable headaches, a family he didn't know, a job he couldn't do, and more questions than a toddler. Writing with the help of his wife, Joan, and journalist-novelist Rother, this memoir perfectly captures Bolzan's desperation and confusion. Even as the writers do a good job keeping up the suspense as to whether Bolzan's memory will ever come back, the up-and-down relationship between husband and wife, who must find out if they can fall in love all over again while also trying to figure out how to pay the bills and handle their son's heroin addiction, is the emotional glue that holds this work together. What the book lacks is Joan's perspective on what it's like to be with a man who didn't remember marrying her. (Oct.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
