"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) 09/17/2012

"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." - Dwight Garner 11/14/2012

"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) 09/15/2012
