I'm always skeptical of books that are lists. Of this one, I wondered why "101 Awesome Things?" Why not 201 or 49 or even just the golden rule? So, it might be said I approached reading this in a somewhat skeptical even snarky frame of mind and did so only because it was strongly recommended and we have a very tricky care giving situation in my family.
Having read it, I take it all back. This is a superb compilation of real and valuable resources, informed and professional advice, sensitive insights and real-life anecdotes...all designed to help the reader navigate an emotionally and physically fraught circumstance involving the people who might be closest to them.
I think all of us see well-meaning books...books that purport to provide advice, tips and resources for one circumstance or another. They're well-meaning, but they don't deliver. This one does. It's nothing short of a marvelous effort...well researched and far more complex and sophisticated than its title suggests. Just marvelous. (My only very minor criticism is that the title and cover art don't suggest the real depth and scope of this work.)
