This is a very gripping and honest account of a family's unspeakable loss. It is filled with little known details about the massacre at Columbine High School in 1999. It is both valuable historical document and a very touching personal tale. It takes heart and courage to write something like this. I would think it an excellent inspiration for others who have suffered through a very public, personal loss.

When you see things like Columbine on the news, you wonder how parents could cope with something like that. How do they keep their families and themselves together? What would they want to say the parents of their child's killers? How do they deal with unceasing media attention?

Mauser provides a direct and honest account of how he found his way through it all. It's sad and heart-breaking, but it's also a book that describes healing, family bonds and--yes--it includes a bit of humor.

The subtitle outlines the topics of the book: "a father's journey through grief, controversy, activism, and healing."

Mauser explains his title "Walking in Daniel's Shoes." It turned out that he and his son wore the same shoe size, and he often wore Daniel's shoes when he worked for causes related to Columbine.

Mauser talks about the process of deciding to do 3 very brave things:

--He advocated for tougher gun laws, especially to close the gun show loophole, a loophole which allowed the Columbine killers to gather their arsenal. Wherever you stand on gun laws, you have to admire a grieving dad who stands up for what he believes in, even though it attracts all kinds of the painful attention. He engaged in e-mail conversations about the issues, even with the people who were really vicious.

--He, along with his wife, eventually met with the parents of the killers. He says he realized what a loss they had undergone as well, and when the time came to meet, they were all parents talking.

--He and his wife adopted a girl from China, just a couple of years after the shooting. They felt that they had time to give to nurturing another life.

This is a book that walks the reader through the dark valleys, but also describes finding a path to healing.

I loved the way this book was written. I found the shorter chapters made it easy for me to set the book down and reflect. Tom Mauser gives us insight into how he continued to unselfishly honor his son by acting to reduce gun violence. Year after year, he often wanted to, but never gave up. Tom Mauser's compassionate and brilliantly humble storytelling also helps us to understand why so many others who have lost a loved one to gun violence may not be able to actively join this fight. I found myself crying, smiling, frustrated, and ultimately - being inspired. Thank you to the whole Mauser family for sharing hope.

After reading a few books the survivors of Columbine had written, I was curious to know how the families of the murdered were doing, and so I picked up this book. It certainly wasn't an easy read, but I must say it is one of the best and most inspiring stories I have ever read!

First of all the book is VERY emotionally charged, but not morbid in nature. Yes the first few chapters recounting Daniel's death are depressing but that is short-lived compared to the joy and inspiration that come in the following chapters in this very moving book. At times I laughed and at other times I cried but in the end there is a "happy ending" considering all Mr Mauser describes experiencing, and a good moral. The book acknowledges the negative, but focuses on the positive in finding strength and inspiration.

What I really enjoyed about this book was that Mr Mauser took the time to divide the book by subject instead of going along with the story in a chronological order which would have resulted in going back in forth between topics. I also liked the fact that each topic is thoroughly looked at from more than one perspective and explained in depth instead of merely saying it happened and then moving on to the next one. It especially helped me understand the American laws/attitudes regarding guns because I am from overseas and did not know much about them before reading the book, so the in-depth descriptions were not a slow part for me. I also really loved all the photos of Daniel at different times in his life, I couldn't help but grin every time I saw a photo of him smiling. They speak true to Tom's description of a kid that loved life!

Lastly, if you're doubtful of reading this book because Mr Mauser is a gun-control activist, don't let yourself be fooled.
