“An amazing book—insightful, compassionate, and quite possibly life-changing.”—Curtis Sittenfeld
“I laughed out loud more than once, choked up more than twice, and generally marveled at the lovely humanity and sharp mind at work. This extremely useful guide to never giving up is journalism at its most responsible, intelligent, and compassionate.” — Kelly Corrigan
