Not always sure what the purpose of this book was
While I enjoyed the background story of the author's struggle w/ his extremely preterm daughter, the author rambled quite a bit leaving the reader wondering what the author's purpose was in writing the book. Was it catharsis? Was it to tell the story of his daughter? Was it to review the current research? Was it to show what great parents they are because they sought out modes of treatment that most parents don't have the resources to seek out? I am not sure. Portions of the book are very moving and to some degree heart wrenching but then the author immediately breaks the spell he has you under by going off on a tangent about something that at times seems completely unrelated.Was this review helpful?

The book includes a lot of research review which may turn many readers off. I enjoyed reading the research review but thought it was not woven into the story very well. I feel for the author and his daughter's struggles but this book could have used a few more edits and rewrites and then probably would have been a great read.
