Review

'Very powerful, very moving, and an important contribution to better understanding of a much misunderstood condition' (Alastair Campbell)

This is a book about Asperger's Syndrome and a book about running, but it's so much more than that. It's at heart a love story, testament to the power of a parent's fierce devotion to their child. Any parent will see in it something of themselves (Gaby Hinsliff, journalist and author of Half a Wife)

Incredibly moving and inspiring. A mother always wants what's best for her daughter, but this mum has to really fight -- and run -- to get it (Ruth Field, bestselling author of Run Fat Bitch Run)

A powerful account of how exercise can restore you physically and mentally (Top Santé)

Grace Under Pressure is a beautiful book. It tugged on my heart strings in the most orchestral fashion. Well done (Kathy Lette)

extraordinary reading (mumsnet.com)

London-based Walker, a Reuters reporter, marathon runner, and popular Asperger's and parenting blogger, offers an honest and inspiring portrait of parenting a child with the disorder . . . In the midst of her struggles, the author begins running for her own health and sanity as well to raise money for the U.K.'s National Autistic Society. As she trains, Walker's setbacks and triumphs are mirrored by Grace's parallel journey. Parents of children with Asperger's or other spectrum disorders will find information, validation, and hope in Walker's detailed and moving portrait of a mother/ "Aspie" daughter relationship (Publishers Weekly)

Book Description

Based on the success of her popular and moving blog, 'Grace Under Pressure' (www.courage-is.blogspot.com), Sophie Walker writes brilliantly about the highs and lows of parenting a child with Aspergers and how she took up running to help her cope.
