Editorial Reviews

Review

A story of intermingled triumph and tragedy, What About the Boy?will touch not only those who have dealt with autism or any otherdisability but also those who have been spared those agonies. In life,agony comes to most of us, but Gallup's book is a testament to living.
- Richmond, VA Times-Dispatch

What About the Boy? is an homage to parental love andsacrifice. ... It is socially relevant, exposing gaps in Americanmedicine and underscoring the need for all parents to be vocal andvigilant when it comes to their children. What About the Boy? is a challenging book, filled with tragedy and determination.
- New York Journal of Books

From the Back Cover

Nobody knew what hurt little Joseph. Perhaps some toxin had invaded hismother's body before his birth. Perhaps it was the difficult birthitself. Or maybe the origin of his disabilities was genetic. Whateverthe cause, something had gone terribly wrong -- but no one was offeringsolutions or reasonable guidance.

He cried most of the time, andthrashed about as if in great pain. He wasn't learning how to crawl,talk, or interact normally. His parents sought medical help and weretold at first not to worry so much. Later, the professionals recommended counseling to help the parents accept reality. Nothing could help their son, and the quality of their own lives was at risk.

Refusal to accept that advice launched an improbable journey that changed their lives forever.

What About the Boy? A Father's Pledge to His Disabled Son chronicles afamily's rejection of hopelessness and their pursuit of a normal life.
