I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it gives me new insight and new thoughts about a subject I am very familiar with.

There are a lot of books by non-autistic people about what autism looks like from an outsider's perspective - this book provides a much-needed autistic view.

This book is a MUST read for every parent who has an autistic or neurodiverse child, and every therapist that works in this field.

The compelling, diverse, deeply insightful essays of this collection should completely reshape the discussion about autism in contemporary North American society, dispelling the echo chamber of panic and pessimism that surrounds the diagnosis in most media, fostered by fear-mongering organizations such as Autism Speaks. Along with other excellent recent titles like I Love Being My Own Autistic Self: A thAutoons Book and Thinking Person's Guide To Autism, this book brings out the essential perspectives of neurodiverse individuals.

Autistics are speaking: can we listen to them instead of the organizations that *pretend* to speak on their behalf?

I have not finished the book yet, as it is so rich in stunning and original ideas. If you are a parent, as I am (of a profoundly disabled adult man) do yourself and your family a favor and listen to these autistics.

This is one book that anyone who wants to understand how autistic feel when they are treated as "less than", or when they are seen as something broken must have.
Autistic people, speaking all right. And speaking very well.
Awesome is only one word to describe it

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Helen Ellis on January 10, 2013
Format: Paperback
This is not a book written about autistic people by non-autistic people. It's written by autistic people themselves, and is therefore highly compelling and positive and turns all the tragedy-oriented books on their heads. I have not finished it; it's a meaty book. The first part deals with the history of the autism self-advocacy movement and it is fascinating and wonderful to read about the way in which autistic folks have taken control of the bs that others have been churning out for so long. I am the grandma of an autistic boy, so I know firsthand that special challenges don't translate into anything vaguely resembling tragedy. Read this book! It will drown out the voices of Autism Speaks and others that have misinformed us for years.

This book is the only one about autism that can truly be said expert on the subject of autism, because it's an anthology of writings by over a dozen autistic people of various ages, races, and backgrounds. The writing styles vary greatly, from nonfiction about the history of the autistic self-advocacy movement, to heartwrenching essays about the difficulty of being told to change who you are in education and society, to beautiful poetry about the expression of a different sensory reality. I can't recommend it highly enough. I look forward to more from the ASAN press.

Moving, beautiful collection of works by autistic people about their experiences and feelings being autistic in a neurotypical world. Heart-warming and heart-breaking, funny and serious essays and poetry from people on the autism spectrum making their own voices heard. There are a lot of books by non-autistic people about what autism looks like from an outsider's perspective - this book provides a much-needed autistic view.
