An involving introduction to life with autists...,
By A Customer
This review is from: George and Sam: Autism in the Family (Hardcover)
First of all, I found this book to be a very good introduction to life with autistic children. Having said that, I don't think that anyone should be put off by thinking that it is only for those who know or have autistic children. It is a highly entertaining and involving story...
This book revolves around the lives of two autistic boys and their younger non-autistic brother. They live with their mother, the author of the book. Although it does discuss the many controversial issues surrounding autism, such as the MMR jab, the book is not just about the issues or indeed the medics surrounding autism. It is about the lives of the whole family and network of friends and helpers. With an introduction by Nick Hornby, the father of an autist, the book lacks nothing it set out to achieve, it is eye-opening and entertaining simultaneously.
A great and informative read!
