Format: Hardcover
I bought the book for a friend who has a son with autism. I thought I would read a few pages to see if it might be of some help before giving it to her. I couldn't put it down and read the whole book. Not Stupid has given me a good insight into the lives of parents who have children with autism. I found the book very inspiring and easy to read.

First of all this is an extremely remarkable tale of the achievement of this woman and her husband to create a network of schools, a college and other facilities for autistic children, all triggered by the needs of their own children who are still only 14 and 18 years old.

Secondly there is a lot of interesting information about teaching methods and how Anna has managed her family as it turns out her husband has Aspergers too! Some parts of the book are written by her husband and eldest son.

An inspiring tale, and full of relevant information if you care for people on the autistic spectrum.

Wow, wow, wow. I read this book in two days and from the start I couldn't put it down. As someone who works in this area, Anna 's account and description of this hidden disability gave me an in depth insight. I really felt as if I was reliving their journey, which has been a roller coaster. I particularly liked reading Patricks' account. Truly inspirational and emotional all the same time, the factual information was well balanced and weaved within real life examples. Everyone should read this, even if they have no contact with anyone with Aspergers Syndrome or Autism. Life's colourful tapestry can rock you to your core and bring you to your knees, but somehow we keep climbing to stand up tall. I love this book!

Story of a mother's determination to get the best possible support for her sons. Inspiring as an example of single minded focus, undaunted and courageous - just not that well written.

I bought this book because I was inspired to hear of her story about starting her own school, as an ordinary person.
I was fascinated to hear more about her experiences of living with autistic people and raising her children, and it really helped me to understand how difficult this must be at times.
The book is well written, and her passion comes across on every page.
I'm glad I read it, and I think I will remember this story to encourage me to battle on when all the doors seem to be closed.
