There is many good points in this book. The information can be dense and overwhelming at times.
There is mentions of Autistic social issues etc and the authors opinions on them some I agree with some, others not, but I guess this proves everyone on the spectrum has different beliefs on what helps and what not.
Anyways politics aside, this book describes things not to say to someone on the spectrum, teach you about stims, ableism, etc. I would recommend this book if you want terminology and want a perspective from an autistic writer not just someone who writes from the outside.
This book has some information dense points for me but I enjoyed the read, I understand people have different opinions and that’s okay, do I agree? No. But being listening to someone else side is always insightful, I’m not against changing my mind if the arguments just.
Overall I think this book is more good then bad. 3/5 I recommend giving this to someone who is new to the spectrum and learning about themselves, or giving this book to someone you love to teach them about your experience on the spectrum and highlight the parts that resonate with you.
This book is good because it’s the voice of someone with autism, it’s not like those mom books. If that isn’t a seller then the information u get will be for sure very detailed, you’ll definitely learn a lot.
