Dr. Tamara McClintock Greenberg has taken on a timely and multi-leveled problem that every individual and family will face at some time in their lives. She combines human compassion with convincing and well-supported data that is applicable to so many situations people face when they, or their loved ones, lose their ability to continue life as it has been. Chronic illness requires that all people involved must face major transformations to survive these experiences intact. In my forty years of practice, I have rarely come across a patient who has not had to deal with this in some way. Dr. Greenberg manages to cover every viable and crucial aspect of this subject in a book that is at once both extremely helpful and emotionally touching." --- --Dr. Randi Gunther; author of Relationship Saboteurs and When Love Stumbles.
