About the Book

Autism Speaks talks to Ron Fournier and son Tyler about LOVE THAT BOY

Praise for LOVE THAT BOY

Love That Boy captures both the fears and gifts of fatherhood and writes about it with honest, selfless clarity. This book is a joy to read, and should be required for all new dads…Really.”
—Jim Gaffigan, Comedian and author of Dad is Fat


“This illuminating and touching book gives us the great gift of letting us know and appreciate the Asperger's world of young Tyler Fournier, who steals scenes from presidents while teaching his parents and all of us what is important in life. “
—David Maraniss, Pulitzer-prize winning author of Once in a Great City: A Detroit Story


"LOVE THAT BOY is a gift to families of all kinds. Tyler is a reminder of why being a parent, whatever the child's condition, is at once the most important and challenging job in mankind."
—Tom Brokaw, journalist, news anchor, and author of The Greatest Generation


“Ron Fournier and his son Tyler are partners on an eye-opening road trip to the crossroads of love and humanity. Along the way, they meet Bill Clinton and George Bush; but the real reward for readers from his being on the road with his dad is that we meet Tyler, a young man with Asperger’s and a heart as big as the country.”
—Mike Barnicle, journalist and MSNBC news analyst
