What’ve people said about the cleft lip kid and his story?

Here are a few of the thousands of reactions to Cleft Heart from various sources:

“Great read, great family, great life…Congratulations!”
Bruce Fleming,  Psychotherapist, California

“If you’ve never had a moment of self-doubt about your looks, your intelligence, your relationships, your physical abilities, the decisions you make or your prospects in life, then don’t read this book. Instead, check into a mental ward immediately because you’re probably delusional.
If you’re like the rest of us, “Cleft Heart” is a valuable lesson in honesty, courage and the indomitable human spirit that will open your heart and enrich your life.
Like “Catcher in the Rye,” it’s the saga of a boy, then young man, trying to find himself against great odds. Unlike “Catcher,” this story is true…
Ron Kalb, Public Relations Executive, Missouri

“Cleft Heart” is a multifaceted memoir, covering {Schonborn’s life in] detail, from birth to adulthood. In the process, several different themes interweave to create the whole of Schonborn’s experience growing up in the 1960s.
The main theme, which underlies all the others, is that he was born with a severe cleft palate. The resulting heroism of his parents—especially his mom—in dealing with doctors and hospitals and operations for decades to fix this problem, is amazing. And since memoirs are written in first person, readers also learn of the mental stress all this put on him, and how well he coped, how well he made decisions—even as a kid—to deal with the bullying from others, and the intense frustration from knowing he looked different.” 
Bruce Roberts, SynchChaos Staff

“The author writes charmingly of his childhood [yet…] brings this coming-of-age memoir to a suspenseful close. “
Kirkus Reviews
