"SPECIAL HEART is a deeply touching personal story told through the eyes of a journalist as he faces the most daunting challenge in life - far more frightening than reporting from battlefields, infinitely more momentous than interviewing newsmakers of the day: caring for his critically ill newborn son. Baier reflects on past challenges as he looks forward with hope, chronicling the steps on his path to national prominence as a television anchor, as well as his unexpected journey into the world of pediatric cardiac disease. With the finely-honed insight of a seasoned reporter, and the deep love of a husband and father, Baier shares with readers the behind-the-scenes stories and emotional narrative of young Paul's life thus far, including the heart-wrenching fears and decisions he and his wife, Amy, have faced together. Surviving every parent's worst nightmare, Bret and Amy emerge - just like their brave young son - scarred but infinitely stronger, and clearly understanding what matter

Interesting background on a major news anchorman

The book is primarily focused on how a young family deals with their first child's major medical issues discovered a day after birth. It is a warm, heart wrenching and sometimes funny look at how one family copes with adversity. It address such issues as blame, faith, importance of family and balancing work and family priorities. The medical issues of a new born child are set in the context of the father being a major cable news anchor. To establish that context the book starts with an extended look at the background of the author/father and how it led up to how he and the Fox News Channel balanced a changing of priorities. Very quick read.
