"Pointing Is Rude illuminates the challenges, triumphs, heartbreaks and joys of parenting a child with autism with such candor and wit that every reader will feel they have lived the O'Briens' remarkable journey...and feel lucky to be a part of this extraordinary family."

-- Ron Suskind, author of Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism



"The story within Pointing Is Rude breaks your heart, as a father or just as a human being.  But then Digger O'Brien and his family lift you up, with their strength, their love, and their good humor about the challenge at the center of their lives.  This extraordinary book is less about autism than it is about the beautiful power of family."

-- Willie Geist, Host NBC's TODAY and Morning Joe



"People know me as the longtime Dallas Cowboys quarterback and now a FOX broadcaster, but my most important job is Dad; Pointing Is Rude provides a great playbook for any parent on how to handle life's ups and downs with humor and grace."

-- Troy Aikman, 3-time Super Bowl Champion, Pro Football Hall of Fame 2006
