No Regrets: Last Chance for a Father and Son Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No Regrets is the personal story of an "adventure" – the adventure of a shared life between son and father. The story spans decades but culminated in two terrific years of reconciliation and love. This book is a tribute to a man called Abe, a good man, a person of simple tastes, modest aspirations and respectable accomplishments, who dared, at the age of eighty-five, to challenge the very fabric of his life and open his heart in a manner profoundly new. Barry Kaufman has spent his entire life in self examination and exploring human emotions and thoughts, trying to understand relationships and interactions. His life work has been to assist individuals and families cope with severe adversities and traumas. When his own son was diagnosed as irreversibly autistic, functionally retarded and neurologically impaired, he and his wife realized that they had worked diligently, as if toward an unknown goal, to transform themselves before his arrival. All the work with others had been preparing them to meet this challenge successfully.

Synopsis:

Barry Kaufmans life has been spent helping others cope with severe adversities and traumas. When he learned of his fathers cancer diagnosis, he had to summon all of his strength. That struggle, and the surprising rewards that came from it, are the subject of No Regrets. Kaufmans father, Abe, was a man of simple tastes, modest aspirations, and respectable accomplishments who dared, at age 85, to open his heart in the face of a terminal illness. His son was not ready for it at first, having depleted his emotional reserves when his own son was diagnosed as irreversibly autistic. This moving book about the unbreakable bond between a father and son shows how one man learned to confront and finally celebrate lifes transitions. It is an inspiring memoir of the relationship between a son and his dying father.
