"[My son] could not tell me his thoughts, so the only place I could go was inside to see my own thoughts, and as I relearned myself, I knew him." - Author, Daniel James Wilson

The story begins in 1958 and continues through 2011. “It starts with my childhood and my views as I grew up. Then came the gift of my first son who was labeled autistic, and without speech. He could not tell me his thoughts, so the only place I could go was inside to see my own thoughts, and as I relearned myself, I knew him. Then the awareness I was given allowed me to see within my thoughts, and this is how I met my son at twenty-nine-and-a-half,” says the author.

To write this book, he had to embrace living and being alone so he could hear his thoughts clearly. He hopes others will be helped by "The Best Kept Secret Is You."

About the Author: Daniel James Wilson was born in 1956 and raised in the San Fernando Valley. After his parents’ separation when he was five, his schooling began to decline, as he could not read fast enough to keep up with the other students. In fact, he did not like reading, so he read very little. He only wrote what was necessary for his work after he dropped out of school at the age of sixteen and began roofing. In 2009, he was asked to write about his son. This is the result. He is also the author of "I Think NOT Therefore I Am Unlimited."
