really liked it
Read in June, 2012

Well I very much enjoyed this book. While her style I believe would entertain just about anybody I felt especially drawn to the fully integrated while loosely connected way Temple manages to get her points across.

I was pleased to read insights that allow for gradients of understanding and the possibility of expansion from an intellect such as hers. My own experience with the autism spectrum has lead me to be quite sure that it is a different ability rather than a disorder. I wouldn't change one of my own differences, nor those of my fellow 'weirdos.'

Temple does a fine job of describing what it is like to learn to function in a world that is not used to bending to integrate the gifts of the minority. Everyone wants to be seen. This book is a step towards that reality for more of us.
