Stories of hope and recovery from a nation of parents of autistic children by the high-profile bestselling author of Louder than Words

When Jenny McCarthy published the story of her successful efforts to save her son from autism, the response was tremendous, including a number-three rank on the New York Times bestseller list and an appearance on the cover of People magazine. What she hadn’t anticipated was the overwhelming response from other parents of autistic children who wanted to share their own stories of success.

No two autistic children heal in exactly the same way. And in her new book, Jenny expands her message to share recovery stories from parents across the country, showing how each parent fought to find her own child’s perfect “remedy of interventions.” Along the way, Jenny shares her own journey as an autism advocate and mother, as well as the continuing progress of her son, Evan. Emotional and genuinely practical, Mother Warriors will inspire a generation of parents with hope.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corri | 2/13/2014

    " There are some good points and ideas, but some rather liberal views- "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Brown | 2/4/2014

    " This is an extremely powerful book and one that is very near and dear to my heart. Jenny McCarthy, once again, is able to give a voice to the parents who KNOW in their hearts that their children were harmed by vaccines, and what they have done in order to help their children recover from autism. We are not crazy, we are not delusional....we know our children better than anyone else and we know when something has changed in them. Leaky gut syndrome is real and the vaccine schedule must be changed....one size does not fit all. i cannot praise Jenny enough. Her writing style is fantastic and she relates to the reader in a way that many simply cannot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pam | 1/28/2014

    " I hated this book and was appalled at the notion of Jenny McCarthy deciding that she was a spokesperson for mothers of autistic children. I am happy that her son did well, but find her views insulting. Can't say how much I hated this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisha | 1/27/2014

    " As soon as my Sister-in-Law heard about some of the problems I've been having with my baby, she called me and told me I had to read this book. It's about autism and vaccines. My baby doesn't have autism, but it has made me think about a lot of things and made me question everything. I will be waiting awhile before I vaccinate my baby again. We just found out that he has several food allergies and I want to give his immune system some time. I've never really understood autism before - this book is a real eye opener. It's a good reminder that we have to fight for our kids - no matter the situation. I've found myself in this role lately as we've been trying to figure out the food allergies and deal with doctors for my baby. You have to do what feels right to you. Great book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kori | 1/24/2014

    " While I do commend Jenny McCarthy for putting herself and her story out there, the biggest frustration stems from her belief that her son has been cured. There is no medically known cure for Autism, period. Bottom line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/20/2014

    " How enjoyed reading it. I learned even more about what parents deal with from doctors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/19/2014

    " WOW! Everyone must read this book. I can't explain it, very toughing. My heart goes out to these people and I am very thankful for my blessings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea | 1/11/2014

    " I think every mother, new or old, should read this book, even if it is to only more familiarize themself with the autism world. "

    " Loving this book! Wanted to learn more about families afffected by autism. Will lend out as soon as I finish. It is a fast read. Let me know if you want to borrow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 11/20/2013

    " I do not support Jenny McCarthy's belief that vaccines cause autism, but I still enjoyed this book. It was interesting to hear the stories of real families who are dealing with autism. This book helped me understand their perspectives and beliefs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 7/10/2013

    " A good read for any parent - even if they aren't touched by autism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 6/18/2013

    " Love her writing. Love her ideas. So hard to implement. I really hope the doctors of the world come to realize that autism is treatable- to a point- and help families find the right path for their diagnosis. "

    " Who proof-read this thing? Typos and missspellings on practically every page!! More and more scientific evidence points to vaccinations NOT being the cause of austim. "Science" seems to be a bad word for Jenny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Jill | 12/5/2011

    " Unbelievably heart-wrenching. What we are "unknowingly" doing to an entire generation of children absolutely outrages me and breaks my heart. PLEASE read this book and spread the word. The ignorance has to stop and the powers that be need to be held accountable!! "

    " Amazing book! It goes through the trials/tribulations of Mothers fighting for their children. (FYI) You'll definitely need a box of Kleenex. "
