    I read this book quite quickly for me as it only took a few days but it was interesting. It was great to gain an insight into a person who I met recently at a study weekend and it was interesting to know more about her background and early life. However, the book is quite short and I felt more could have been added but I guess I am just nosy. The book is not an academic textbook although it does contain a small amount of references, I think some people may see the topic and think it will help with study but I read it more as background reading for my course and work life which involves Autism support. Definitely a book to recommend to anyone interested in Autism and gaining a personal view of living with undiagnosed Autism.

    Interesting. A quick read that has slightly increased my understanding of autism. Not a lot of detail or a lot of story. There's obviously an important message in this book but I don't feel like I will even remember reading it in a few month's time.
