Reviews

"Sincere, profound and deeply satisfying." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Bursting with life energy. Profound and inspiring. A must-read." --Deepak Chopra

"Timothy Shriver has written a lovely, honest, and inspiring book that draws on his own wisdom, life experiences, and pioneering work as a champion of the intellectually disabled to offer important lessons for all of us." --Michael Beschloss, author of Presidential Courage

"Timothy Shriver is not only a gifted writer but a profound intellect and a genuine seeker of the deep truths that make any human life worth living. To read this book is to have your own experience illuminated by an immensely compassionate being, to embrace your own limitations, and to move on with a warmer heart, a more peaceful mind, and a joyfully uplifted spirit." --Martha Beck, author of Finding Your Way in a Wild New World

"This is a beautiful book about love, meaning, and the Kennedys. It is about Joseph and Rose's life with Rosemary, their daughter with an intellectual disability, who was a tragedy, yes, but also an amazing and precious person, a blessing to her family, challenging and beloved, a radical teacher of the value of each human life. This is the story of Rosemary Kennedy's role in leading the family to its force as advocates for the disabled all over the world, of her sister Eunice Shriver's founding of Special Olympics, of her nephew Timothy's dedication to this great cause. I was lifted, edified, riveted." --Anne Lamott, author of Small Victories
