Quote from the book’s first essay:
“James’s father spoke. In a calm voice he said he knew there was something different about his son and that he appreciated what I had done. What he said next was life-changing for me and I have carried his words through cases in my practice for decades now. He said, “Thank-you, you told me from your heart.”
