    Great Book....

    We read Rescuing Jeffrey in my college class. Once I opened the cover of the book, I read the whole thing then and there. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN FOR THE LIFE OF ME. Very compelling and unbeleivable. I was amazed at this book. I HIGHLY recommend this to EVERYONE. Thank you so much for writing this book.

    Wow! Read This Book!

    I read Tuesdays with Morrie and was moved by the thought of a relationship rekindled-at a time when it still had a chance to matter to both individuals. I read Rescuing Jeffrey and was moved by much more than that. With riveting eloquence, one dad shares with all of us his horrific struggle to do what he thinks is best for his terribly injured son. Galli does not ask for our understanding or our support. He simply tells his story with brutal honesty. The book grabs you and takes you on an emotional journey from which you truly emerge a different person. You cannot put this book down, your tears will wet the pages as you turn them, but you rejoice in Jeffrey Galli's own declaration that he wants to continue life's journey-even with the cards that now have been dealt him. While Galli argues with the system for the right to end his son's life, his account of those ten days reveals too many points along the way where he actually is searching for reasons to let that decision be Jeffrey's. In the end, Galli recognizes that, too. He probably knew it all along. He just was lucky enough to have a son who reminded him of it when it counted the most. This is a life-affirming narrative of the first order.

    A Terrific Book!

    While reading Rescuing Jeffery, I was struck at the refreshing honesty that Mr. Galli presented to the reader. His remarkable and candid account of the decisions and thoughts he as a loving father had to go through during a horrible time are truly touching and poignant. This is an inspiring book that touches upon many of the most important and beautiful aspects of the human spirit.
