Not What I Expected from the Author: Rita Eichenstein PhD. Finalist for a Books for a Better Life Award A pediatric neuropsychologist presents strategies to help parents of special-needs children navigate the emotional challenges they face. As diagnosis rates continue to rise for autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, and other developmental differences, parents face a maze of medical, psychological, and educational choices – and a great deal of emotional stress. Many books address children’s learning or behavior problems and advise parents what they can do to help their kids, but until Not What I Expected: Help and Hope for Parents of Atypical Children there were no books that explain what the parents are going through - and how they can cope with their own emotional upheaval – for their own sake, and for the wellbeing of the whole family. With compassion, clarity, and an emphasis on practical solutions, Dr. Rita Eichenstein's Not What I Expected: Help and Hope for Parents of Atypical Children walks readers through the five stages of acceptance (similar to the stages of grief, but modified for parents of special-needs kids). Using vivid anecdotes and suggestions, she helps readers understand their own emotional experience, nurture themselves in addition to their kids, identify and address relationship wounds including tension in a marriage and struggles with children (special-needs and neurotypical), and embrace their child with acceptance, compassion and joy. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Not What I Expected from the Author: Sara E. Lewis. Recovery from her physical wounds was all that seemed to matter back in 1977 when SaraÂżs legs were badly broken in car crash that upended her college graduation and shiny new career plans. Imagine living your life with an undiagnosed brain injury. No one told Sara Lewis about the Âżsevere concussionÂż noted by a doctor at the hospital. So she lived for nearly 3 decades with a brain injury she didnÂżt know she had. During those years, frustration over thinking problems grew. Wrong turns, misunderstandings, and defeats at work and at home led to emotional and behavioral meltdowns that are the hallmark of so many brain injuries. Public awareness was growing, but not fast enough to save Sara from ruining her career, losing friends, and becoming more and more isolated. Even after her traumatic brain injury was diagnosed, it took another decade and another trip to graduate school to become a speech-language pathologist for her to understand its impact on her life. Acknowledging and adapting to her brain injury has finally freed her to live her life fully as a survivor of a brain injury.

Joy During The Journey from the Author: Bud Lee. The author was just your average guy trying to make a living and at the same time have a family he could be proud of. But like so many other men, things didn’t work out the way he imagined. He found while he was successful in business, he was a failure in marriage relationship. Since this failure was unacceptable to him, he set out to find a way to be better at relationships. Along the way he discovered God and accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior. He also married a girl who was willing to be patient while he learned from God. For a lot of people the story could’ve ended right there, but for the author he wanted more than just a church membership. Because of his wanting more, and his appetite for investigation, which he used in his business. The Holy Spirit saw this as an opportunity to take the author on a journey of discovery. As the book unfolds the author has incidents that happened in his life defying the laws of coincidences, and so slowly, so ever slowly, the author starts admitting to himself God is in charge, and is taking him on a journey. Each step of the journey has been orchestrated to teach the author a specific lesson he will use in later years. Each of these steps the author has put into a separate chapter, because each of these steps was an unexpected surprise to the author.

Not Quite What I Was Planning from the Author: Larry Smith. Deceptively simple and surprisingly addictive, Not Quite What I Was Planning is a thousand glimpses of humanity—six words at a time. One Life. Six Words. What's Yours? When Hemingway famously wrote, "For Sale: baby shoes, never worn," he proved that an entire story can be told using a half dozen words. When the online storytelling magazine SMITH asked readers to submit six-word memoirs, they proved a whole, real life can be told this way too. The results are fascinating, hilarious, shocking, and moving. From small sagas of bittersweet romance ("Found true love, married someone else") to proud achievements and stinging regrets ("After Harvard, had baby with crackhead"), these terse true tales relate the diversity of human experience in tasty bite-sized pieces. From authors Jonathan Lethem and Richard Ford to comedians Stephen Colbert and Amy Sedaris, to ordinary folks around the world, everyone has a six-word story to tell.
