Item description for No Regrets: Last Chance for a Father and Son by Barry Neil Kaufman...
Barry Kaufman's life has been spent helping others cope with severe adversities and traumas. When he learned of his father's cancer diagnosis, he had to summon all of his strength. That struggle, and the surprising rewards that came from it, are the subject of No Regrets. Kaufman's father, Abe, was a man of simple tastes, modest aspirations, and respectable accomplishments who dared, at age 85, to open his heart in the face of a terminal illness. His son was not ready for it at first, having depleted his emotional reserves when his own son was diagnosed as irreversibly autistic. This moving book about the unbreakable bond between a father and son shows how one man learned to confront and finally celebrate life's transitions. It is an inspiring memoir of the relationship between a son and his dying father.

Moving Mountains & Building Bridges Mar 31, 2007
Barry Neil Kaufman has written many inspirational and moving books and this one is no exception. In this one, he provides readers with descriptions of his life with his father and how he would later apply Option approaches in his own life. I just love this book.
It is about moving mountains; building bridges; inspiring hope and reinforcing joy. This book is like a beautiful sunrise - bright, new, fresh and hopeful. It might even make you cry. It makes me think of Mike & the Mechanics' 1989 hit "The Living Years" which is about a father and son who initially don't see eye to eye. This book is about how a father and son converted a strained relationship into an openly loving one. As a father, Barry Neil Kaufman is, from all accounts an extremely loving person. That comes through in his writings and in the things his family says.
This book generates new hope of the possibilities and options available in restoring and repairing relationships. The entire tone of the book is gentle and positive. If you are looking for a good place to take away some life lessons, then this book is for you.

An inspiring story of the transformation of a once distant and difficult relationship into a warm and loving bond between an adult son and his father. Struggle and discord are replaced with openness, kindness and ease. No Regrets teaches by example and thoughtful reflection the possibility of building bridges and deepening relationships which might have once seemed impossible. In his embrace of core positive and powerful beliefs, Barry Neil Kaufman truly imparts remarkable life lessons that are a fabulous gift to us all.
An Inspirational & Moving Family Memoir Apr 22, 2003
No Regrets has moved me in so many ways. I loved being part of Barry Neil Kaufman's experience, through this book, as he reconciled with his estranged father at the announcement of his dad's terminal illness. I really appreciate how he turns challenges into opportunities, how he models that one can change beliefs in an instant, and how and why to give control to our aging, ill, or dying parents.
I'm so glad I read this book before I have to face the same experience. Now I know I'll be with my parents in a way that is honoring to them, honoring to me, and I know that it will be an opportunity to deepen our relationship. But why wait? I'll put these principles to work right now.
I highly recommend this book.
