From the Publisher

The extraordinary memoir of a mother''s love, commitment and nurturing, which allowed her son, originally diagnosed with severe autism, to flourish into a universally recognized genius--and how any parent can help their child find their spark.
     Today, at 13, Jacob is a paid researcher in quantum physics, working on extending Einstein''s theory of relativity. Diagnosed at age 1 with severe autism, at 3 he was assigned to life-skills classes and his parents were told to adjust their expectations. The goal: tying his own shoes at 16. Kristine Barnett''s belief in the power of hope and the dazzling possibilities that can occur when we keep our minds open and learn to fuel a child''s true potential changed everything.
