I was just blindsided at what these two individuals , the authors, had to struggle through to become such quality human beings at the end. What models are they for the autism community and for others with neurological and mental health issues. I admit I became discouraged at times, particularly with Sean's entries because they were not progressing as quickly,it seemed, as Temple's. They were filled with so much self-hatred much like the emotional issues I have experienced. It was interesting to see how different these two authors relate to the world based on the ways their brains were wired. I have a little autistic granddaughter now so I think I might be able to understand her better and hopefully help her after this book..
