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.

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 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.

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."

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.

Good book if you are looking for some insight into autism. We have two children with autism in my extended family and this book has been passed around the family. All have said it helped them see autism in a different light. It was received in a timely manner and was packaged approriately,

This book was a Christmas present for my 7 year old Aspie son. This book is suitable for any type of autism, it is not specific to Asperger's although it does touch on it.

1. This book is short enough that every family member could read it in ten minutes, we just passed it around.
2. This book affirmed my son and made him feel validated and as if he had other people he could relate to. This is not something I can do myself, this is something I look for the community to provide.
3. I bought a 2nd copy for his teacher. It is simple and it will help him advocate for himself. I expect him to advocate for himself and not get a free pass because he has autism.
4. This book is inexpensive enough that I can buy one for his teacher at the beginning of each school year.
5. As a parent, this is the best, most useful book I have ever read about autism. I am a school librarian with a passion for reading, as a parent of an autistic child I read daily for at least an hour on this topic. The other incredibly useful site I have found is Karla's ASD page, a public page or a page you can follow on Facebook. My son is in a mainstream class, manages his sensory issues, is educated about his ASD neurology and the neurology of NT people which is a huge aid in preventing frustration and allowing him a full life.
6. My son found the graphic format and light text extremely appealing.

I look forward to more from this author.

Finally, I am not autistic, so I asked my son to tell me 2 things he liked about the book.

Brady said his favorite part of the book was "I think the best way to help autistic people is to help them be happy and useful", He thought it was ridiculous that someone would say someone with autism would not understand autism," he says someone who is Autistic understands autism the best because they experience it, it is actually a part of them.
