Newman and his son share with us a rare glimpse into the imperfect narratives that shape the relationship between a parent and a child. A courageous and honest reflection on the ways we love and the loving we need and the work it takes to bridge the gap between the two.

This book was a really intriguing book to read! The perspectives offered by both Kevin and Alex can likely be related with any parent-child relationship looking for mutual acceptance of one's true self.

Well-written and such a pleasure to learn about some very determined and successful men.

Very moving book. Kevin Newman's life as a journalist is fascinating. The book really drove home how important communication is in any family.
