“When I started Sean's book, I read a section and said to myself, ‘I'm going to email Sean to tell him how amazing that sentence is.’ Then as I read a little further I thought, ‘No, I'm going to email Sean to tell him what an amazing depth of knowledge and perception he's giving us.’ And then, yes, you got it, on the very next page he wrote something that made me think, ‘His Mom is looking down on Sean with unending love for what he just wrote.
