I have learned about t/dysfunctions resulting from selection. I struggle w/th author's use of "normal", tho I understand her viewpoint.

My sister, we think, is autistic. I wonder if this book will offer me insight, or just remind me of her. Either way, a must-read!

This is my second go at this book. At first I approached it as I would a novel, but it's more like a textbook. Very illuminating.

So far I am finding the information from this book intriguing about animals and autistic people. I worked with autistic children for a year.

It's not just social contact that raises endorphins in the brain. Social touching also raises endorphins.
