Leading Korean skin scientist, Dr. Raymond Park, has spent a lifetime concerned with easing the suffering of those around him and to be the best father he can be. He now shares those experiences in A Quest For Healing (A Memoir That Weaves Together Science, Family and Faith) a memoir that encompasses his search for self and purpose in South Korea, one of the world’s most educationally competitive societies.

Dr. Raymond brings the reader firsthand into the South Korean Student Protests that rocked world headlines in the 1980s, providing a deeply personal view that the news reports did not show. He shares his activist experiences with their harrowing revelations and losses, as part of the journey that gave him the inner strength to find his own way to heal suffering and led to his becoming one of the world’s leading scientists who created a groundbreaking skin barrier-healing formula for sufferers of skin ailments such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis.

Readers will connect with Dr. Raymond’s unflinching self-honesty and inner complexity that we all have as human beings, especially when we become parents. He chronicles his relationships with his sons, especially the anxiety and guilt he suffered when his eldest son was diagnosed with autism. On parenting and healing his relationships with his sons, Dr. Raymond said, “A book is a crucial way to get a message out to the world, and I wanted to tell it as a parent for other parents because we all love our children so much and only want what’s best for them. But this book is also meant to be a gift for my other two sons who have been so supportive and loving of their older brother and who have faced many difficulties because their parents were so preoccupied with their brother’s welfare that we were often absent. That is also a great pain for me as a parent and I have wanted to heal my relationships with them as well. I hope this book is a way of their understanding how much they have been loved all along and to tell them about all they couldn’t see or know these past years.”

At once a book about inner struggle, the challenges and complexities of family relationships, caring about social injustice, finding faith and working tirelessly to fulfill one’s purpose in life, A Quest For Healing (A Memoir that Weaves Together Science, Family and Faith) is both universal and specific, a memoir that every reader can find something to identify with and derive inspiration.
