heartfelt letters that he hoped Sam would read later in life. He planned
to cover all the important topics -- dealing with your parents,
handling bullies, falling in love, coping with death -- and what
motivated him was the fear that he might not live long enough to see Sam
reach adulthood. You see, Daniel Gottlieb is a quadriplegic -- the
result of a near-fatal automobile accident that occurred two decades ago
-- and he knows enough not to take anything for granted.
Then, when Sam was only fourteen months old, he was diagnosed with
Pervasive Developmental Disability, a form of autism, and suddenly
everything changed. Now the grandfather and grandson were bound by
something more: a disability -- and Daniel Gottlieb's special
understanding of what that means became invaluable.
A lovingly written, emotionally gripping book that offers unique -- and universal -- insights into what it means to be human.
In addition to his thriving psychotherapy practice, Daniel Gottlieb
serves as the host of Voices in the Family, an award-winning mental
health call-in show on Philadelphia's much-respected public radio
station, WHYY. He also writes a bimonthly column for the Philadelphia Inquirer
entitled 'On Healing,' and is the author of two books. He lectures
locally and nationally on a variety of topics affecting the well-being
of people, families, and the larger community.
