This book is excellent. And the narrator was, too.
This is a piece of work that should be in every household in every age group in every walk of life
Honestly, it's a very interesting book to listen to, but if you are looking for any positive information on autism, there are other better books. This book would be much better titled as "The Dark History of Autism Research".
As a parent of a child with ASD, I appreciated the fresh perspective on autism and what my daughter has to offer the world. The concept of neurodiversity was new to me, but offers some compelling hope for the future for families and those who have been diagnosed as "on the spectrum." The book was a little longish on historical details, but a definite must-read for anyone seeking to learn more about the truths, half-truths and outright fiction surrounding autism. Thank you to Steve for sharing his unique perspective.
