This book is incredibly unique in that it is actually written by a woman who was able to learn to operate outside her autistic tendencies. Apparently, the ability even to recognize one's own autism is far from the norm, and to be able to write a novel about it is that much more remarkable. But in addition to autism, Donna Williams' childhood was filled with abuse and food allergies which make some of her experiences difficult to attribute to any particular factor. The book was very interesting, but not the eye-opener I'd hoped for. In fact, it wasn't until the afterword that I felt I "learned" some things that I could use.
