"Dear Sam, my life was changed the moment you were born."

So begins this remarkable collection of thirty-two intimate, compassionate letters that Dan ["Pop"] Gottlieb wrote to Sam, his grandson. Frank, honest, and inspiring, they address life changes we all face, each in our own way.

Although the themes of the letters are universal, they draw from a highly personal well of experience: Dan Gottlieb has been paralyzed from the neck down since a nearly fatal automobile accident twenty-five years ago, and his grandson Sam was diagnosed at fourteen months with pervasive developmental disability, a severe form of autism. Dan wrote these letters with the hope that Sam would one day be able to read them, and through them, get to know his grandfather. Devoid of self-pity or regret, Dan's letters sing with the purity of a grandfather's love, and cover life lessons from dealing with parents and coping with school, to falling in love and achieving personal success.

Letters to Sam is an enduring testament to the connection between people, no matter how difficult the obstacles to communication may seem. Written with a keen intelligence and hard-won sensitivity, these letters are inspiring reminders that, regardless of our abilities or limitations, we are all the same.
