About the book:


"I held my breath until they gave the gunman's name. I was afraid it was my son." This letter and others like it from anxious parents reached Jack and Jo Ann Hinckley after their son John shot President Reagan and three other men in 1981.


Ironically, the Hinckleys had no such fears. They had never recognized the danger signs in John's "typical" childhood. "A terrifying account of the unpredictability with which serious mental illness strikes...If out of the Hinckley's tragedy a better public awareness of the reality of mental illness results, than their suffering...will not have been in vain." --John A. Talbott, M.D., President, American Psychiatric Association
