Reviews

"Career journalist Cohen doesn't flinch from probing for truth about relationships, money, fear, and death....One only hopes that, with their group presentation to a class of Harvard medical students, these five taught young medicos as much as they could teach Cohen and, through him, us."--Booklist
"This unusual book gives a voice to the voiceless--the chronically disabled who, in our health-conscious society, are defined by their disease....In this advocacy book, written like a personal journal, Cohen tells their stories....Strong at the Broken Places ends on a note of hope."--Providence Journal
"Extraordinary."--Larry King, Larry King Live
"The strength of these profiles derives from Cohen's focus on chronic illnesses that, as he notes, are not "sexy" and generally "do not resolve themselves"....these are stories dense with quotidian details."--Washington Post
