Summary

Steve Silberman's book, NeuroTribes, blows many common beliefs about autism out of the water. Along the way, it tells the real stories of children and adults with autism, their families, and the clinicians and researchers trying to understand their very different minds. Reviewer Francesca Happé recounts the fascinating history of the autism story, and praises the book's affectionate and insightful portraits of autistic individuals, parents, and researchers.
