The best-selling author of Friday Night Lights and 3 Nights in August travels cross-country on a road trip with his son Zach, whose premature birth left him with a mix of remarkable skills and profound disabilities known as savantism. As father and son journey through the best and worst of America—and the best and worst in each other—Buzz tries to discover the logic behind Zach's unique way of seeing the world.
