I was riveted from the first page,” was the reaction of a senior health professional to this first-person account of a traumatically injured patient, a collaterally damaged family and their multi-year relationship with many health professionals. Rare is such a riveting first-person, minute-by-minute account; rarer still, by a father.

All readers will take away the story, suspense, drama, and knowledge for present and future use—including To Do lists. One such item is how professionals and families can use techniques such as blood harmony—entrainment—to save and heal the traumatically injured, the acutely ill and the collaterally damaged family.

If you are preparing health care courses for the coming year, this compelling book will provide new insights, and stimulate thought and discussion in key practice areas. It has been augmented by and for health professionals and educators.

… it is captured as a whole lived experience, including the explainable, the frightening, the joyful and the mysterious. It is the story before analysis, before explanation and before the extraction of "useful" guidance for professionals that captures the heart. Read the words, see his family and yours and marvel at your good fortune to have this account. Learning will follow.

This minute-by-minute account is enriched by anecdotes and revelations behind the social media public face; and analysis, observations and recommendations. Miraculously the traumatically injured patient provides an epilogue—3 years into the journey. The book directly empowers and challenges readers to be—and use—the power of one. Also it affirms those called to health care.

To sample the book you can go to Introduction, Chapter One, Excerpts for Professionals, Excerpts for Family and For Friends and Detailed Table of Contents.

Six months before the book was completed a nursing school committed to adding the text to courses and an association of health professionals commissioned an article for their newsletter and promoted the book to their members.
