Praise
"A profoundly moving new work of research and narrative...explores the ways that parents of marginalized children...have been transformed and largely enriched by caring for their high-needs children." (starred review)
"Mr. Solomon's first chapter, entitled "Son," is as masterly a piece of writing as I've come across all year. It combines his own story with a taut and elegant précis of this book's arguments. It is required reading....This is a book that shoots arrow after arrow into your heart. Yet there's nothing maudlin. Mr. Solomon's prose is dry and epigrammatic."
"An informative and moving book that raises profound issues regarding the nature of love, the value of human life and the future of humanity." (starred review)
