Reviews

"In this book childhood memories combine with family histories to create a moving tapestry of a loving family fiercely dedicated to the well-being of a member, even when things are seemingly at their worst . . .

Readers navigating a similar "onslaught of family responsibility" may feel less alone after reading this book--and have a better understanding of what works and what doesn't. A brave, soul-searching first-hand account of the risks and rewards of caregiving."

-- Kirkus Reviews

"In Run, Walk, Crawl, Sarahbeth Persiani shares the 24/7 perspective on the days and nights of a daughter, mother, sister, wife and employee. The impact of Sarahbeth's personal caregiving experience on her career is as heart-breaking as her personal losses. Her memoir is a poignant reminder to everyone that our co-workers often show up to work weary from their other job--caring for a family member. You'll feel as if Sarahbeth is a close friend bearing her soul to you as you read her gripping and honest account. Highly recommended."

-- Denise M. Brown, founder of CareGiving.com

"A must read for any human resource professional--or any people manager for that matter--who seeks to understand the pressures on and perspective of the millions of working caregivers whose workdays stretch around the clock. Sarahbeth Persiani's personal story eloquently illustrates the non-stop pressures on working caregivers that can lead to collisions between work and life."
