This book is pretty good. It’s straightforward, has a great layout, was clearly well-researched, and lifts up Autistic voices.

It loses a star for using person first language, and references to functioning labels (including lots of the use of Asperger’s). I’m guessing it’s more a symptom of when it was written (and possibly done to please the publishers), but as an autistic advocate, I can’t give it full marks, and I’d actually be hesitant to recommend it to other autistic people as some would find the language used frustrating and/or triggering.

I love what the book is trying to do though, and have learnt from it.
