Daniel Shapiro shares the reality of the fifteen years he spent living and caring for his wife while single-handedly raising three young children. He often found himself looking for guidance as he struggled to figure out what is right, what is okay, what is wrong, what is just human, and how to bear it all. For anyone who has ever had to deal with the anguish and desperation of an illness, Daniel addresses questions that people living through unspeakable misfortunes may wonder about, but don’t know who to ask.

Dan Shapiro is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Brain Research Foundation, a foundation that exists to accelerate discoveries of the human brain by funding pioneering neuroscience research. Dan’s three children co-founded the Young Leadership Board in 2016 and have raised more than $260,000 for BRF. Dan is a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School. A lifelong Chicagoan, he has practiced trial law nationally for many years. He enjoys spending his time reading and hanging out with his grown children. The Thin Ledge is his debut book. He is currently at work on a second book, a novel about an aging lawyer, late career ambition, and ethnicity in a changing world. Find out more here.
