Very moving. As an educator working in the field of Special Education it was enlightening to hear a parents perspective. This family left "no stone unturned" trying to find appropriate treatments and support for their brain injured son. They received the phone call that every parent dreads and yet were able be effective advocates as well as loving parents giving credit to those who helped them along the way. I would definitely recommend this book to others.

No Stone Unturned is a bright and inspiring memoir about a man and his beloved son and the story of a traumatic brain injury that thousands of people in the U.S. and around the world will find compelling. I was stunned by the beautiful prose and the heartfelt emotions of a family in crisis but determined to find a path to wellness for a cherished child. Interwoven into the story of the accident and its medical consequences is a narrative about two people with so much love to give that they adopted two children from Korea. That is a remarkable tale in and of itself. Americans who have adopted foreign-born children, those who have experienced traumatic brain injury in their families and many others will find this story irresistible. I highly recommend it.

As a parent of a young man who sustained a brain injury in 1998, at the age of 18, I have read many books written by survivors and  caregivers. Joel Goldstein's book is the most real and honest book on what it's like to deal with that heartbreaking experience beginning with that first phone call telling you your child has been in an accident. At times it was a difficult read. It will take you back through that journey or it may give you insight into what lies ahead for you and your loved one. It will break your heart with Bart's loss of "self".  However, it is written with such compassion, humor, and hope. Joel and his wife, Dayle, have searched and continue to search for ways  to help their son live a rewarding life. I will use this as an inspiration and a guide to do the same for my son.

When I learned about this book from our local paper, I ordered and read with interest. Though I once had been a special education teacher and dealt with this, I now am a survivor of my own brain injury (due to a tumor). This book is phenomenal! It tells this family's story in a very real, honest, informative, caring and loving way. Though brain injuries can be dubbed "invisible", the affect they have on everyone involved (family/friends/society) can be difficult at times. This book helps others understand what is going on. I hope lots of people read this book to get a better handle of behaviors caused by a brain injury. I have TONS of books to read to help me get better in this new phase of my life. No Stone Unturned is a book I read and -re-read a lot! Janet Schliff

This is a very smart book. Beautifully written, far better than most memoirs. Touches on all the heartbreaking stuff, but doesn't get bogged down or sentimental. Breaks the tension with lots of funny background that tlightens the read. Author seems sensible, moslty focused on pratical, pragmatic ways to help readers on similar tough journeys. For those struggling with TBI or other grave medical conditions, this book is tops.
