“For such an all-encompassing book title, I don’t think I learned very much about how to actually deal with people with autism. I did learn the very interesting history of ‘autism’ and how we arrived at this diagnosis. I didn’t realize this book would be 90% history and only 10% of how autistic people have organized organizations to help themselves and advocate for funding/services. This book wasn’t what I expected but it was very interesting.
CW: Please note the chapter about Dr. Asperger does mention Nazi’s…a lot. Some may want to skip that chapter.
My Rating: ★★★★ My 2019 Reading Challenge: Book #17
