Advance praise for The Fun Master.
Nicola Kraus, co-author of The Nanny Diaries.
“In this poignant memoir, Seitzer takes us inside the grueling day-to-day of parents turned inside out by the arrival of a child with intense medical needs. While reminding us that even in the most challenging times the joy and humor that children bring always shines through. And the love. The big, life-changing love.”
George Bodenheimer, Former President and Executive Chairman, ESPN
“Jeff Seitzer combines compassion, humor and hard truths in this artfully written and beautiful story of a father’s dedication to his son, Ethan. It is a compelling story of personal growth, triumph over adversity and love simultaneously both heart wrenching and heartwarming.”
Ron Bahar, Adjunct Associate Professor of Pediatrics, USC Keck School of Medicine, and author of the young-adult novel, The Frontman
“In his new book, The Fun Master, Jeff Seitzer shepherds readers through charming, poignant, and also heartbreaking tales of parenting, adoption, and the loss of a child. As a pediatric gastroenterologist, I have an excellent understanding of the technical aspects of a tracheoesophageal fistula, the congenital malformation which affected his son Ethan. Through The Fun Master, however, I learned valuable lessons of love and resilience from the point of view of both parent and child, and I am reminded of why I pursued a career in medicine in the first place. The Fun Master is a must read for parents and medical professionals alike.”
