needs to be edited

The reader did a great job. But there needed to be more editing done to clean it up.

Well Done

As a professional Orator I felt I had to offer one piece of advice to fine tune the presentation which is... please have someone go through the entire read and makethe the small edits that should have been made in the final mixdown and read through. There are a great number of vocal retakes left in (including throat clearing,rereads, etc) that are a bit distracting. Overall the book is great with very interesting content, a solid well done and appropriate read and contains very important information to a lot of people. I would absolutely recommend! Great job overall.

Generalized to absurdity

Background about me: 35 year old male who just discovered a hidden (from me) autism diagnosis.

There are massive generalizations in this book based upon the author's experiences that are not applicable to many, if not most autistic people. Coupled with the author's endorsement of a "therapy" that is often used to justify punitive applications of electrical shock to children for behaviors that they may not be in full control of, I honestly can not recommend this book.

There are a few bits of good advice that may be applicable mixed in with the problematic content, but I just can't stand to listen to the sweeping generalizations that make it sound to someone who has never met a functioning autistic person that I wouldn't be able to tie my shoes without some nanny standing over me for seven hours a day to get it right.

Excellent book, but audio version needs basic editing

This is a truly excellent and well written, well edited book. The audio book is also well recorded, but it is full of audio editing errors like sniffles and backtracks to correct a reading error—clearly nobody did basic exiting. Still worth buying, though!
