The Reason I Jump: One Boy's Voice from the Silence of AutismHardback edition
Many families live with the challenge of autism. Many professionals care for and nurture people with autism. Between those two dedicated groups lies the mysterious and impenetrable world of the autistic person. This book bridges that gulf in simple, direct and touchingly beautiful style. Thirteen year old Naoki Hagashida describes his world as only an insider can do. David Mitchell's introduction to the book creates the most perfect setting for this lovely narrative, written by a special person, about special people. It should be read by all who seek an insight into this fascinating place.
