This book is not about understanding autism, but understanding people with autism, what they go through, that they are not that much different than us, and that with the right people in their lives, and the right motivation they can live happy fulfilled lives.
This isn't just a book for anyone who has a friend or loved one with autism. It's a book for everyone that wants to learn a thing or two about life, how to experience the world as others do, and how to make yourself a better person.
I guarantee that anyone that picks up this book will enjoy it's message, the authors struggles and triumphs, as well as the humor and humanity.
And somehow, even as it reads like a manual for how to achieve those connections, it manages to be funny as hell. Barb invites you to laugh with her -- she dares you to laugh at yourself as she does herself. Her humor was, for me, the most delicious surprise of all.
It is not remotely an exaggeration to say that this book has changed me. It has made me a better mother, a better advocate for my autistic daughter, and, above all, a better person. I want to be Barb when I grow up.
Read the book. It's a gift.
