Author and autism advocate Steve Silberman takes us back through the history of society’s relationship with autism. Silberman weaves a page-turning narrative in which we meet the controversial clinicians who coined the term, witness the ways in which being autistic have been beneficial and lethal, and are introduced to present day advocates for the neurodiversity movement.
If you read a handful of books about autism, make this one of them.
(Available in audiobook format.)
