really liked it

Compilation of short articles about various aspects of autism and Asperger's based in large part on her own experience of being autistic. Always iffy to draw general conclusions from one's own experience (i had tremendous noise sensitivity, so people with autism are noise sensitive), but she supplements the personal anecdotes with information gleaned from people who write her or come to hear her speak, as well as more systematic research. Her ability to analyze the condition objectively, acknowledge variability in people's symptoms and experiences, and communicate to "neurotypicals" is outstanding.
