    The Age of Autism Acceptance?

    The new title is more fitting than the original published title, "Create Your Own Economy." That name connoted a business/career/self-improvement vibe that is almost wholly absent in the actual text. Cowen focuses more on reconceiving autism and autistic' experience and lifestyle--both in and of itself and as a lens for understanding how technology is reshaping our lives.

    In that respect, I felt it is an important work, but beyond changing how I think about autism, I don't anticipate much change in either my behavior or how I think about myself or my world. The former may be enough to make it worthwhile but I was hoping for more. (The fault may be my own--I was familiar with both editorial and Cowen's own comments about the work, and I was still taken aback by the extent to which it seemed to be about autism per se. I assume the mistake is mine).

    I ultimately didn't enjoy it much. Again, the fault may be my own; I find Cowen's blog more interesting and had encountered the seeds of enough of these ideas there that there were relatively few surprises. I hope his notions--particularly of autistics as more normal, capable and valuable than conventional wisdom holds--gain wider traction, but I can't recommend the current book with much enthusiasm.
