No Regrets is the personal story of an "adventure" – the adventure of a shared life between son and father. The story spans decades but culminated in two terrific years of reconciliation and love. This book is a tribute to a man called Abe, a good man, a person of simple tastes, modest aspirations and respectable accomplishments, who dared, at the age of eighty-five, to challenge the very fabric of his life and open his heart in a manner profoundly new. Barry Kaufman has spent his entire life in self-examination and exploring human emotions and thoughts, trying to understand relationships and interactions. His life work has been to assist individuals and families cope with severe adversities and traumas. When his own son was diagnosed as irreversibly autistic, functionally retarded and neurologically impaired, he and his wife realized that they had worked diligently, as if toward an unknown goal, to transform themselves before his arrival. All the work with others had been preparing them to meet this challenge successfully.
“No Regrets is quite wonderful. A book of deep healing. The work of a true heart,of deep courage and unfailing devotion. Certainly required reading for all who wish to complete unfinished business and decompose the armoring over the heart to meet the world in mercy and forgiveness.” -Stephen and Ondrea Levine, Authors, Who Dies and A Year To Live “No Regrets offers the greatest possible gift – hope.”
-Mary Manin Morrissey, Author, No Less Than Greatness
“A tremendously healing book full of insight, courage, tenderness, respect and forgive-ness. Kaufman powerfully teaches the salient truth in Dag Hammerskjöld¹s saying, It is more noble to give yourself completely to one individual than to labor diligently for the salvation of the masses.¹ Would you like to heal a special relationship that has become like a metastasizing cancer? Read this book.”
-Dr. Stephen R. Covey, Author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
“As a surgeon, my intention is to help people heal. From the introduction, packed with wisdom, to a story that touches and strengthens the heart. No Regrets is a guidebook to healing the accumulation of life¹s wounds. If you want no regrets in your life, read this book and learn how you, too, can repair old wounds and heal your life.”
