5.0 out of 5 stars It's All Too Much 25 Feb 2006
By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
George Harrison's 1968 stellar gem, "It's All Too Much" could be a description of sensory overload. "It's all too much for me to see...it's all too much for me to take..." describes the autism/Asperger's (a/A) experience.
If you are on the spectrum or know somebody who is, make this book your best friend. It does an exemplary job of explaining strong reactions to sensory stimuli. For example, I knew a very young child with Asperger's who, from infancy on always checked toys to see if they were soft. Hard toys were discarded and the child also complained about certain tastes and foods that caused "funny-bad" feelings and "felt nasty in your mouth" such as "lumpy potatoes" and "nasty ketchup." She also detested the smells of talcum powder and vinegar, saying they "were stinky" and made her "feel like throwing up."
That same child insisted on keeping her hair back in a ponytail because she didn't like the way her hair felt touching her skin. Her idea of punishment and hell was being forced to forgo the ponytail and suffer having her "hair getting in the way and making my skin itch," as she said. She also refused to wear certain things due to the level of discomfort they caused; preferred loose, comfortable clothing and, like everyone on the spectrum detested loud noises and cowered under tables upon hearing sirens. The child explained at 3 that "sirens make me hurt everywhere" and "jello is nasty - it shakes in your mouth; doesn't taste much so why eat it?" To this day, she finds jello repulsive.
This book is the voice of hope and reason. The child mentioned above at the time of this review has two degrees and is an expert in certain areas, one of which is Asperger's Syndrome.

5.0 out of 5 stars too loud to bright too fast too tight 22 Jan 2012
By Nigel
Format:Paperback
This is a fabulous book. It is well written and easy to read. It explains how we function and how difficult life can be for the sensory defensive person. I have found it very useful in gaining a better understanding of how our sensory system works which has enabled me to apply this to my work on sensory circuits in a primary school. I would highly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative 8 May 2014
By Alli
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book, easy to follow & very informative. I do not often buy this type of book. The format was good except of course it's American. I also bought "the out of sync child" & preferred this one. The other book ad the same information mostly.
Paid 12 delivery for 4 books which took 3 weeks to deliver by snail!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Too brilliant 15 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
I have bought at least six copies of this book and each time someone pinches it off me when they realise that it may have an answer for them. Reading this book was like reading a book that was written about me and after 30 years of trying to cope with how I felt, it was wonderful to have a book that explained how I felt. I have given it to my friends and family to read so that they can at least gain an understanding of what it is like to be a 'sensational' person.

Well written, empathetic and really useful.
