My guest today is Ron Fournier, who has written a book that is now out in paperback called "Loved That Boy: What Two Presidents, Eight Road Trips, and My Son Taught Me About Parent's Expectations. He is a well-known writer, presidential journalist, and this book is a bit of a departure directly related to accepting his son's autism diagnosis. 

Ron Fournier is Publisher and editor of Crain's Detroit Business, formerly the Senior Political Columnist for National Journal. He began his family and career in Arkansas, covering then Governor Bill Clinton before moving to Washington in 1993, where he covered politics and the presidency during the administrations of Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. Fournier is a four-time winner of the prestigious White House Correspondents' Association Merriman Smith Memorial Award.
