About the Author
Jacquelyn McCandless received her M.D. from the University of Illinois College of Medicine and is certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Since the early 1990s, her interest in women's issues and sexuality has led to an alternative medicine practice with a focus on anti-aging, brain nutrition, and natural hormone therapy. In 1996, after her granddaughter was diagnosed with autism, she returned even more to basic medicine and began working with biomedical aspects of developmentally delayed children. She now utilizes the knowledge she gained searching for treatments for her grandchild to help other ASD children.

For example, on page 88 the author recommends "The Cheerful No Casein, No Gluten, Sugar Optional Cookbook" by Sally Ramsey - a professional chemist who is also a gourmet cook. That last bit was the hook that whet my appetite to purchase the book, but it is no longer available - and hasn't been for years - from the source the author lists: the Autism Research Institute. I did call the institute and am glad to have done so, but that book can't be found through them or anywhere else that I can find.
Likewise, the author cites on page 87 that the Autism Network for Dietary Intervention (ANDI) publishes "The ANDI News," a quarterly newsletter with articles written by parents and health professionals regarding the GF/CF/SF diet. Not so. The newsletter stopped publishing in 2005 - four years before the 4th edition of this book!
So even though I think this is a good book - it appears to be in great need of updating with accurate information. If these recommendations of the author's are any indication, it's possible that other information in this book is out-of-date as well and needs a more thorough combing through by the author and others to truly provide an updated version without false information!
