A book on quite a "difficult" subject, this deals with life from the point of view of someone diagnosed with the affluent West's psychological illness du jour, autism. It is rather well done, with a sensitivity that stops short of mawkishness. A little reminiscent of "Flowers for Algernon
", this is a good book with some genuine insights about how it feels to be classified this way. I recommend it especially for adults who work with children.
