I am a nursing student who is interested in the mental health challenges of children. Reading this book gave me a lot of insight into the autistic brain and will help me with my approach with patients who have autistic spectrum disorder.

Everyone who has an autistic person(s) in their lives should read this book. The author is unapologetically autistic and her ideas were presented from the unique perspective of a person “on the spectrum” . So many autism books are written as if autistic people need a cure for their illness but this is a book about understanding autistic people and appreciating the gifts autistic people have. I especially enjoyed that this book was written as a book nothing more nothing less, there were no “sales pitches” trying to sell me on a special diet, miracle cutting edge treatment, apps for my tablet or other Autism books and gadgets. There were resources and web sites listed but they were informational. Reading this book has helped me better comprehend what people with autism are facing and how real their need for understanding is. The last chapter offered many “real life” examples of how to encourage people with autism. My only complaint was whoever borrowed this book before me took it upon themselves to add their own personal notes, underscores and parentheses’ on almost every page of the entire book…really who would do such a thing to our library’s property?
