Frank Bruni, The New York Times:
“As good as we humans are at division, we’re better still at connection. Ties That Bind shows this again and again.”
“A testimony to the power of narrative and vision....The collection features an astonishing range of voices, and the stories recount exceptional events in the lives of 'noncelebrated' people. As a result of the participants’ refreshing lack of cynicism, the book is appealingly down-to-earth and, ultimately, moving. The collection successfully fulfills its mission: to make readers feel 'more connected, awake, and alive.'"
