Letters to Sam: A Grandfather's Lessons on Love, Loss, and the Gifts of Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dear Sam,
As your only living grandfather, I want to welcome you into this world. Always remember that...life is a gift and a blessing.
In the tradition of such bestsellers as Tuesdays with Morrie and Riding the Bus with My Sister, this emotionally powerful collection of letters from grandfather to grandson will touch readers right down to their core. Award-winning radio host, newspaper columnist, and psychologist Daniel Gottlieb has created a truly inspirational work.

When his grandson was born, Daniel Gottlieb began to write a series of heartfelt letters that he hoped Sam would read later in life. He planned to cover all the important topics — dealing with your parents, handling bullies, falling in love, coping with death — and what motivated him was the fear that he might not live long enough to see Sam reach adulthood. You see, Daniel Gottlieb is a quadriplegic — the result of a near-fatal automobile accident that occurred two decades ago — and he knows enough not to take anything for granted.

Then, when Sam was only fourteen months old, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disability, a form of autism, and suddenly everything changed. Now the grandfather and grandson were bound by something more: a disability — and Daniel Gottlieb's special understanding of what that means became invaluable.

A lovingly written, emotionally gripping book that offers unique — and universal — insights into what it means to be human.

Synopsis:

Written by an award-winning radio host, newspaper columnist, and psychologist, this emotionally powerful collection of letters from grandfather to grandson will touch readers down to their core.

Synopsis:

What if the things you imagine will make you happy won't—if what you really need is not what you think you need? Daniel Gottlieb (Letters to Sam) has produced an inspirational primer that takes us on an enlightening journey toward a sense of well-being. Gottlieb, who suffered a traumatic injury that left him a quadriplegic over 30 years ago, is uniquely qualified to offer wise counsel on the relationship between what we want and what we have. He offers his thoughts on breaking patterns and habits, calming the unquiet mind, reconnecting with our emotions and our bodies, living in the moment, discovering that ineffable “something” that defines who we are—and above all, the importance of love.

About the Author

In addition to his thriving psychotherapy practice, Daniel Gottlieb serves as the host of Voices in the Family, an award-winning mental health call-in show on Philadelphia's much-respected public radio station, WHYY. From 1993 to 2008, he wrote a highly regarded column for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and is the author of four other books. He lectures locally and nationally on a variety of topics affecting the well-being of people, families, and the larger community.
