This article reviews How did you get here? Students with disabilities and their journeys to Harvard, written by Thomas Herir and Laura A. Schifter. The authors explain the collegiate success stories of several students with varied disabilities and extrapolate themes from interviews with the students and people close to each of them. The book includes many detailed examples and thoughtful questions lead the analysis throughout. Overall, I highly recommend this book as the stories can be an inspiration to any student. Additionally, this book would be a fantastic addition to a course for new professionals in schools or for parents of a child with a disability. Publisher: Harvard Education Press (Boston. MA, 2015). ISBN: 9781612507811. List price: $35.00 (U.S.). 252 pages.
