This is a book about differences. Hamilton’s supportive, confident voice guides readers through the pages, building trust and asking us to open ourselves to the possibilities that differences bring into our lives.

She tells us in the beginning that what she says is founded on what she has learned from her Down Syndrome son. What follows is a magical, little handbook for coping with the uncomfortable gaps that keep people at arm’s length. It’s jam-packed with good, down-to-earth guidance that encourages readers to balance listening with expression, choose stillness instead of reaction, and explore their wants and needs with an eye to making changes.

Let customers know if they want to replace the drama in their lives with productive communication, they will find much helpful information in this book.
