Who better to report this happy news than someone who was interviewed for Facebook Fairytales by Emily Liebert? That would be me.
In a chapter spritely entitled "Magic Touch," Emily Liebert tells the story of my now 22-year-old son Dan Mulvaney who suffers from severe Autism and -- like many people with Autism - uses Facebook. It helps him to slowly digest facial expressions and respond to people on his own terms, in his own space, in his own time frame. It works the same way for Chou Chou Scantlin, a Washington D.C. based 56-year-old gorgeous and talented showgirl and singer - and former Shakespearean actress -- who has high functioning Autism and yes, is Facebook friends with my son Dan.
Emily got our story right. She got the facts right, the tone and the warmth - and the urgency of Facebook. As an author and a journalism professor, this leads me to believe she got the whole book right. So as I read the other fascinating stories in this compact but important volume which is about our society, as much as it is about social networking, I feel confident I am hearing more real voices from real people.
The layout is ingenious and gorgeous. If you appreciate art in the production of books, then this is a must buy.
The stories in this book are great; not because they bring out complicated nuances of the human condition, but because they reflect the best in all of us. We need to hear more stories like this.
Emily Liebert truly captured the spirit of each person interviewed. This is a great book that every user of social media should buy.
Thanks to Emily for writting the book and thanks to Julie her editor, for networking the book on Facebook, with out Facebook and Julie I would not have know about the book.
