Reviews

"[Meadows] has compiled compelling stories about people who faced and ultimately surmounted daunting medical challenges. . . . The families' ventures into a realm that some would call quackery were typically inspired by love, desperation and hope, and were fueled by irrepressible grit and determination to find solutions to debilitating health problems that defied the best that conventional medicine could offer. Their stories left me in awe of their persistence against formidable odds."--The New York Times "The stories featured in this book are really remarkable--a child making a full recovery from a painful illness, a woman confined to a wheelchair walking again--and all because they wouldn't stop looking for answers."--Good Morning America "This is a book of hope. . . . An amazing book for everyone."--Fox & Friends "At the age of three, the author's son Shepherd was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis. When Western medicine didn't help, Meadows, a journalist, found a special diet--no gluten, no dairy--that did. For this book she found other families who, as she writes, had similarly explored 'the wilds of unfinished science.'"--Newsday "[Meadows's] purpose is to 'suggest potential targets for new research, ' and she does so with writing that's compelling and fair. . . . This is a terrific book for those who need encouragement to take control of their diagnoses, and for their physicians and families."--Publishers Weekly "Throughout these tales, a common attitude binds people together: hope. . . . What cannot be refuted are the will power, perseverance, and hopefulness of the patients and families profiled here."--Booklist "Can eating the right food play a major role in healing medical problems? . . . Encouraging, honest information and real-life cases that show the role food can play in healing the body."--Kirkus Reviews "[The Other Side of Impossible] introduces readers to courageous patients, parents seeking help for their children, and scientists searching for cures and explanations. . . . The author highlights the importance of persistence, hope, and research when facing difficult medical situations."--Library Journal "In this affecting and illuminating book, Susannah Meadows emerges as the kind of sound, sensible, and invaluable friend you want by your side when medical disaster strikes. She brings a strong grasp of science, a writerly sensibility, and a good heart to the difficult subject of the present and future of healthcare. If you love someone, read The Other Side of Impossible."--Jon Meacham "I laughed out loud more than once, choked up more than twice, and generally marveled at the lovely humanity and sharp mind at work. This extremely useful guide to never giving up is journalism at its most responsible, intelligent, and compassionate."--Kelly Corrigan "The Other Side of Impossible is an amazing book--insightful, compassionate, and quite possibly life-changing."--Curtis Sittenfeld
