This is by far the best book I have read on the subject of Neurodiversity. It provides the reader with the current landscape of things in Autism-land. The way it is written appeals to me as an autistic person. Very graphic intensive with easy words depicting the real issues facing me today as an autistic person. The underlying message of acceptance is prevalent. I wish this book where handed to me with my diagnosis years ago. It would have saved me hundreds of hours of research.

I loved this book. The characters show the diversity of the autism spectrum and highlight some of the issues that are ever present in the community of advocacy.

This book is amazing. Actually, it's more than that. This book is exactly what people need to read when they think of autistic people, autism, neurodiversity, or anything related to those subjects. I actually purchased the book on Kindle, sat down and read it to my 8 year old autistic son. He's known of his diagnosis since he was six and is very proud to be autistic because we've never allowed him to be anything BUT that. This book is the first concrete "evidence" of anything put forth that I could show him to validate that feeling that is also created by an autistic author. Landon Bryce's use of thAutoons was brilliant in that my son was able to read (most) of the captions, recognize the expressions and then get righteously pissed off at the doctor and sister characters for wanting the Vector character to "blend in" and "be cured" of his autism. I wish I had video taped his little rant against and the muttering of "Oh, the indignity!" Mr. Bryce has already done much to further the neurodiversity movement. However, with this one little book, he has now blown the hinges off of it. Bravo.

This is a beautifully written and illustrated book. Written by an adult self-advocate, this is ideal for everyone touched by ASD. Such a straight-forward, informative, supportive approach - Thank You Mr. Bryce! I've bought another copy for my teenager.

Buy this. Buy one for your kid's teacher, one for the doctor's office, one for grandma, one for the office breakroom--just buy this. Landon Bryce takes a very complicated subject matter and boils it down to all that really matters: people on the autism spectrum--just like the rest of the world--are all different, in beautifully different ways. And no less worthy of dignity and respect.

Also, my favorite line? "I think autism is a fad!" ... "I wish ignorance was a fad."

I have Asperger's and Landon's book is a good reminder that all of us on the spectrum are different from each other; I am different from Temple Grandin and Landon. I don't have the environmental sensitivities nearly as much....but I am autistic; Many of my autistic traits come in much more muted and subdued forms, but they are there; I'm definitely not neurotypical either. Landon's book is a plea for acceptance and for neurodiversity. The reading level is accessible to older children and teens. I was satisfied with the Kindle edition's layout and readability.

Landon has done a wonderful job of illustrating and describing the struggles many people who are autistic face each and every day of their lives. I found the book inspirational and thoughtful and highly recommend it.
