Editorial Reviews

Review

"Inspiring...gives readers hope that the next generation can do much to heal America’s great divide." ―Booklist (Starred Review)

"Documents the beautiful way [Kaleka and Michaelis] finally came together in founding Serve2Unite, an organization united around cultivating courage, wisdom, love and human kinship." ―Milwaukee Magazine

"As the title suggests, bad can lead to at least some good, and violence to healing, when it gets different kinds of people to talk to each other, understand each other, and even learn to love each other...extend[s] the message of brotherhood and compassion that has been forged from tragedy." ―Kirkus Reviews

"Pardeep Kaleka and Arno Michaelis―a former white supremacist and the son of a man killed by a white supremacist―were never supposed to know one another, let alone see each other as brothers. Today their impossible friendship has become a beacon of light. blueprint for action, and testament to a revolutionary love. Witnessing their brotherhood unfold through the years has been among the greatest sources of inspiration in my life. Now this book makes it possible for their story to embolden countless others. In a time when the fires of hate and vitriol burn bright, The Gift of Our Wounds is required reading for every American seeking a new way forward." ―Valarie Kaur, lawyer, filmmaker and founder of the Revolutionary Love Project

"'What the world needs now, is love sweet love.' While those words were written by Hal David, played by, Burt Bacharach and sung by Jackie DeShannon and Dionne Warwick, they are lived by my brothers Arno Michaelis and Pardeep Kaleka. This is a must read blood and guts story for everyone, the weak and the strong. It is a horrific story of blood, shed through violence and a triumphant, beautiful story of guts, used to stand up against hate, violence and racism. The Gift Of Our Wounds, is a gift to all human beings, showing that love will trump hate in the end every time and, 'It's the only thing, that there's just too little of.'" ―Daryl Davis, Musician and Activist

"A powerful and heartfelt memoir by an unlikely friendship, offering compassion and understanding but more importantly hope for the future of humanity." ―Madeleine Black, author of Unbroken: One Woman's Journey to Rebuild a Life Shattered by Violence

"Arno Michaelis and Pardeep Kaleka are living examples of the transformative power of friendship. Because each was willing to take the risk of meeting, because each was willing to allow for the possibility that their nemesis might in fact not be as terrible as each had been told, their meeting and mutual understanding has not only transformed each of them as individuals, but also the lives of so many others. I can't think of a book that is more needed right at this moment." ―Abigail Disney, filmmaker, philanthropist, activist
