Brave man, tragic situation, determination to make a positive impact so that some families can have a better outcome. Shows that one person can be the start of something big, even though it takes lots of people to do the rest of the work. One person can inspire others to join him to accomplish something that he could not do alone. Thank you John Walsh for creating a new and better way of handling child abduction, and also an alternative way for the public to communicate with law enforcement. Not all by yourself of course, but you are a big part of the solution. One person can do a lot if it is the right person.

Such a heartbreaker to read up on the murder of 6-year-old Adam Walsh. I was not alive when this crime happened, but I grew up watching America's Most Wanted and didn't realize that it all got started because John Walsh's son was kidnapped and murdered in 1981. It was something of a history lesson for me to read about how so much has changed as a result of this and the Walsh family's activism. This book, while uncomfortable and heart wrenching, was eye opening and worth reading.

I read this book years ago, loaned it out and never got it back, and so re-ordered it. This is a heart-breaking story of a child's murder that makes one realize how vulnerable we can easily be, but also a fascinating story of a father who turned his grief into very worthwhile and badly needed endeavors which have undoubtedly saved children's lives. I admire John Walsh for all he has done to help recover missing children. Highly recommend this book.

Very interesting read! Some people stated that it was the parents fault because Adam was left alone in the store for a few minutes. I don't feel this way because it was not a long time that Adam's mother was gone and things were just different back then. I would not leave any child alone in a store today.... AND don't you think that Adam's mother thinks about that everyday......let's not judge.

I have just finished reading this book and it will stay with me forever. This is a book that everyone should read. It only takes a second for things to change forever. Adam Walsh was a beautiful child and was killed by a low life. My heart goes out the the John Walsh family. What they went through is unbeliveable! A nightmare! But they rose above their misery and reached out and helped sooo many people. They made a differance. This book has changed my life. In reading this book I could feel their pain and the struggles they went through trying to get justice for Adam. Because of John and Reve, we now have better laws in place and they have dedacated their lives in helping others. This book will open you eyes to the evil in this world. But because of good people like John and Reve Walsh it shows me what a difference we can make if we just try. I have the most respect for this couple and admire their courage!

This is the third time buying not only the movie but the book as well. With very addition to our family I make sure they read and watch both parts of Adam. Even with this day of cell phones young parents need to know and remember the fears of our world as well as the good. That it's alright to scream and yell and above all their area code. My heart still hurts for the Walsh's and I will always be greatful for everything they do. If you have not seen or read this book you should.

As a loyal fan of "America's Most Wanted" and a person who cares about children, I had to read this book. I must admit, I was a bit apprehensive about the contents when I first picked it up. I had heard about the Adam Walsh case prior to reading about it, so I knew how terrible his abduction and murder was. For this reason, I was afraid that I might come across some details that would be so graphic that I'd get discouraged. It's kind of like knowing about an incident that is so bad that you almost do not want the details. But John Walsh's book was informative, compassionate, and just plain well-written. It was not overly gory or negative. In fact, I had a hard time putting this book down. In this book, John Walsh was not merely an author recounting the events of a true and terrible crime. He was a human; a caring, grieving, and determined father who was pouring his heart out to you. Strange as this may sound, I felt his presence in the room when I was reading it. It was as though he was actually sitting across from me, talking to me. He told me his heartwrenching, yet inspiring story. His story held my full attention. Hearing about what happened to Adam and the terrible injustice that John and his wife faced brought tears to my eyes. It angered me. And it changed my outlook on life. I developed a whole new way of thinking. I learned that though I may not have always thought so, crime can happen to me. I do need to be aware. I learned that even though I deeply sympathize with the Walsh family, I will never truly know of their pain and other feelings because I have never actually walked in their shoes. It is only when you are a parent and your worst nightmare has come true that you can truly understand those feelings of anguish. Their story reminded me that we never know what we really have until it is gone. That's why it is important to be thankful for what you have. The Walsh family seems to really be trying to emphasize that: If you have children, realize that you hold a bond for each other that cannot be duplicated. Love those children with all your heart. Accept each of them as they are. Teach them as much about the world as you can. Give them everything you've got. And be careful. Be aware. Because you might wake up early one morning, and like John Walsh, kiss your child good-bye, go off to work (or somewhere else), and never see him or her again. Or like Adam's mother, you may go out with your child to do an errand and discover that your day has taken a terrible, unexpected twist. I will continue to watch "America's Most Wanted" until the show ends for good. I will also continue to pray at night for the security and safety of our children. I have started John Walsh's second book, "No Mercy". Though I have yet to finish it, reading it always leaves me on the edge of my seat! The Walsh family's caring and dedicated efforts are indeed an inspiration. Their work is making a difference in the lives of many. And I know in my heart that some day the Walsh's 3 children (1 daughter and 2 sons, all born after Adam's death)will follow in their parents' footsteps. They will succeed, and stand up for their beliefs. They will always be appreciated. And because they were raised in such a loving environment, they will find only happiness, courage, and strength. They will make wise choices. And have a world of wisdom and inspiration to share with their children and grandchildren. Each day they will be able to thank their wonderful parents- who started it all.
most intriguing book. Follow John through his family life and see the courage of a family facing the ordeal of losing a child. John Walsh had a long hard struggle ahead in order too bring justice to the one who had destroyed his foundation, his hope, and his faith in life. I have the upmost respect for John and his wife in their courage facing the horrible loss of losing their child and the living hell his family faced after Adam disappeared from a Florida Mall.

All Americans have John and his wife to thank because they has worked tirelessly to make life better for other children who may become victims of child abduction. I have several children and I thank You John for making life better for us all.
