Drawing on dozens of intimate audio interviews with families from all across the country, award-winning psychologist and writer Andrew Solomon redefines what it means to be an “ideal family” in America today. Solomon observes that America, led in large part by the women’s, civil rights, and gay rights movements, has undergone a radical social shift in the last few decades. Although the structure of family has changed, economic and legal structures lag behind and need to adapt to accommodate this explosive new reality.

after listening to different family dynamics, my views are different to what my original traditional values mean to the word "family". This books has helped with understanding, overall everyone just want love and acceptance no matter how abnormal it may look to society's eyes. I pray GOD take the judgement from my eyes bc this book has change my heart.
