5.0 out of 5 stars All the world's an idiot save thee and me and even thee's a bit of one!, 9 May 2006

(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
Aspergers from the point of view of real people with the condition - intelligent, soul-searching and enormously helpful in showing how the author and his fellow "autistic" friends cope with the world. My sons are both autistic - the older is 19 and struggling to integrate. I found the book helped me to understand more fully how it feels for him and he found the shared issues and experiences made him feel less unique and alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding ourselves., 13 Oct 2006

(REAL NAME)   
An insightful, compassionate and well written book by a man with excellent communication skills. Nazeer himself was struck by how un-autistic he appeared when writing this.

He describes individuals who have overcome many of their difficulties through education, family support, maturation, intelligence and bravery. Although he focuses on some unusually talented people he is honest about the challenges they have yet to overcome and also describes people who struggled greatly.

This is an inspiring read for those living with Asperger's and a thought provoking read for anyone interested in how we communicate socially.

5.0 out of 5 stars An alternative way of thinking and experiencing the world, 17 Jun 2009

This review is from: Send in the Idiots: Stories from the Other Side of Autism (Paperback)
This brilliantly articulate book gives those of us with more neurotypical attitudes a way into the world as seen by those on the autistic spectrum. The DSM IV criteria for diagnosis of autism and Asperger's syndrome are very difficult to interpret as life and personality have an impact on how these syndromes manifest themselves in people. This book, written by Mr Nazeer who found himself diagnosed as autistic as a child in the 70's and attending a school for well to do autistic individuals. He has managed, with the aid of his parents' address book, to make contact with several families of his previous school mates, and find what their lives have brought them with time. Absolutely brilliant, essential reading for parents and relatives ( and teachers) of people on the autistic spectrum.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most enjoyable, insightful way to learn about autism, 13 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Send in the Idiots: Stories from the Other Side of Autism (Paperback)
I recently started working for an autism charity and wanted to learn more about the day-to-day affect if can have. Nazeer's account of the lives of some of the people he was at primary school with is remarkably page-turning. Theories about the condition are woven into a collective biography that demonstrates the diverse ways in which people are affected by autism.
