I just finished reading this book. I found it an easy read, informative, personal, touching and well-worth the read. I felt much empathy for the mother; her thoughts were very real, understandable, and sensitive. I easily related to what she was going through. I would, eagerly, read a subsequent book, to find out what happened to Conner as he grew up - how did his sister learn to understand what he was going through...and did the parents stay together, or did it cause an irreparable issue between them?.

If I hadn't known better, I'd say this story was of my mother and I, to a tee. I had temporal lobe seizures as a child and early adult, with all the complications and confusions. It is very unfortunate, all the stigma and misunderstanding that goes on with these types of seizures, especially for a mother and child. "DINGS" is an easy read and an informative eye opener to any reader of any age.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Should be required reading for all medical students and anyone working with children!
Excellent writer. Loved all the little reference to things that anyone interested in medicine, literature or life in general can appreciate.
Also there is a wonderful article about the Dr. Fogan in the Santa Clarita Elite magazine.
Wonderful Doctor and Author, even after 28 yrs as colleagues, you have surprised me. Keep writing and surprising us.

Lance Fogan writes a realistic, but fictionalized account of a child who has developed a form of epilepsy. It's a heart-warming tale of the effects on the child, but also the effects on his "typical" American family. The book provides "easy" reading, but is a classic in its scope and content.
