Avid reader! I probably read 25 to 30 books a year, and most are on the New York Times best seller list. I was drawn to this book, because of the cover and the description on the back of the book. I am glad I have read this book and encourage anyone raising child to get this book. This book is exceptionally written. You will find yourself crying during one chapter, laughing in another, and being inspired by a great story teller. THIS BOOK SHOULD BE ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER LIST. BY FAR THE BEST WRITTEN BOOK I HAVE READ IN THE PAST TWO YEARS.
MUST READ! This is a wonderful book! It’s nice to read a story from a father’s point of view on raising a child with autism. I love the honesty of this father who shares the struggles he faced within himself while coming to terms with his son’s diagnosis. He shares the challenges of getting a child into the write programs and the funding to help pay for those programs. This book will make you think, it will make you cry, it will make you laugh, and it gives you hope. I look forward to another book from this father, telling us how his son is progressing. I have learned a great deal from reading this book and will be getting more involved in the fight. I would recommend this book to EVERYONE!
