"Occasionally, a book will come along that actually has the power to change a society. Those are books like Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, Carson's Silent Spring, Haley's The Autobiography of Malcolm X and Roots, Ginsberg's Howl, Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, Galbraith's The Affluent Society and Sinclair's The Jungle. Now let me introduce you to Dale DiLeo's Raymond's Room, an essential work that belongs in the same list...If you never read another book in your entire life, read Raymond's Room." --The Asian Journal
"Thank you, Dale, for telling the truth." - Ann Turnbull, Ed.D., Professor, Special Education, University of Kansas
"DiLeo has thought about these people deeply and compassionately. A warm, highly readable memoir and guide to unprejudiced vision, ... would interest both the disability professional and the general reader." --St. Augustine Record
