Overview

Barry Kaufman's life has been spent helping others cope with severe adversities and traumas. When he learned of his father's cancer diagnosis, he had to summon all of his strength. That struggle, and the surprising rewards that came from it are the subject of No Regrets.

Kaufman's father, Abe, was a man of simple tastes, modest aspirations, and respectable accomplishments who dares, at age eighty-five, to open his heart in the face of a terminal illness. His son was not ready for it at first, having limited emotional reserves after his own son was diagnosed as irreversibly autistic. This moving book about the unbreakable bond between a father and son shows how one man learned to confront and finally celebrate life's transitions.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This chronicle of the diagnosis, treatment, and death of Kaufman's father, Abe, from cancer relates a moving and deeply spiritual experience for both father and son. Abe, perhaps for the first time, chooses happiness: he grows, learns, and lives fully even while dying. Meanwhile, Kaufman, author of Happiness Is a Choice and founder of the Option Institute, a learning center, ponders the meaning of all this and comes to a deep and human understanding of himself, his father, and their growing relationship. Calming and packed with wisdom, this inspirational and emotional read is not a journey of sadness but of love: as Kaufman observes, "Cancer did not seem like an enemy but instead, a friend that offered us an opportunity to find more of each other and, in the process, more of ourselves." Those who liked Barbara Sher's lively How To Live the Life You Love might enjoy this; an inherently different approach is Daniel Rutley's up-tempo Escaping Emotional Entrapment. Recommended.

Table of Contents

“A tremendously healing book full of insight, courage, tenderness, respect, and forgiveness. Kaufman powerfully teaches the salient truth in Dag Hammerskjöld’s saying, ‘It is more noble to give yourself completely to one individual than to labor diligently for the salvation of the masses.’ Would you like to heal a special relationship that has become like a metastasizing cancer? Read this book.” — Stephen R. Covey, Ph.D., author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People “No Regrets is a great learning tool for those of you at a crossroads in your life.” — Jackie Joyner-Kersee, six-time Olympic Medalist
