Brian's Legacy chronicles the emotional journey of a dedicated father and his troubled son, by paring Brian's journal entries with his father's recollections. As a child, Brian Othmer faced many challenges. As a young adult, he recorded his journey in a diary, which reveals a young man determined to understand himself and his brain, and to answer the question that drives him: Where do I fit in this world?
This is the perfect read for anyone who has been touched in some way by the difficulties of raising a troubled child. It is also a universal story for those looking for inspiration to improve their day-to-day lives.
|"I was impressed with the book's examples of honor for individuality. Each character was true to themselves, in difficult times."||"Brian's soul-searching and sometimes lyrical prose about his medical and interpersonal struggles is heart-wrenching throughout the book. The result for me was the feelings of both privilege and pain at being allowed this glimpse inside of his very personal struggles."||"Reading Brian's Legacy helped me reach an even deeper level of understanding and compassion for the struggles as well as the dreams of my children, my clients, and even my own. The pages of this book are filled with honesty, humbleness, wisdom and love brought by its author."|
