The dangers of unconditional love

You could call it being an extreme extrovert -- people who are always excited to hug strangers and or strike up conversations with everyone they meet. But taken too far, it’s a genetic disorder. People with Williams Syndrome have no suspicion or skepticism toward strangers. That can be dangerous when you trust the wrong person. A new book follows the story of one young man with Williams, and how his mother raises him. It’s called “The Boy Who Loved Too Much: A True Story of Pathological Friendliness.”
