Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity by Andrew Solomon
New York Times . Solomon spent 12 years researching this thought provoking, interesting and moving novel. It covers are variety of subjects from deafness to schizophrenia.
You absolutely do NOT need to be a parent to grasp the psychology of the subject matter, the subjects themselves and life choices ( I am not a parent). The material itself is so fascinating that, you will easily absorb it.
This is an exceptional book, that might change you views and ideals on certain subject(s). Solomon uses scientific date and personal stories to engage the reader. His book is unbiased and well researched.
I highly recommend this read.
