Summary
Having lost virtually everything - his wife, family, home, and livelihood - Benjamin Benjamin enrolls in The Fundamentals of Caregiving, where he is instructed in the art of inserting catheters, avoiding liability, and keeping distance between client and provider. But Ben soon discovers that this has done little to prepare him for the reality of caring for a tyrannical nineteen-year-old in the advanced stages of Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Summary
After losing virtually everything meaningful in his life, Benjamin trains to be a caregiver, but his first client, a fiercely independent teen with muscular dystrophy, gives him more than he bargained for and soon the two embark on a road trip to visit the boy's ailing father.
