George Getschow, Writer-in-Residence, Mayborn Graduate School of Journalism at the University of North Texas:
“Saving Ben is a haunting tale, so powerfully told that readers will find it practically crawls under their skin as they flip the pages. Answers don’t come easily. It will take years for the father to see his son as his darling “scarecrow,” a never-ending work in progress, but also a gift.
This is no ordinary journey, with no neat and tidy resolution. It’s the story of Benjamin’s downward spiral into a world not well suited to deal with him. Only a father who grew to love his son unconditionally, a father who was willing to sacrifice all for his son’s sake, could save him.”

“This is a significant work to help inform parents of autistic children. Dan Burns is a pioneer in his struggle to recover his son."
