The book gives unique insight into the real world of the autistic child and the support mechanisms, not just for the child (which is the subject of a lot of work), but for the family itself which is trying to support the child. Familes of autistic children should directly profit. Those who didn't know about autism can gain new insight into some people they probably know. This author is uniquely qualified to write on this subject, because he represents the intersection of the following sets -- he has an autistic child, is highly intelligent in his own right, is able to understand the feelings of others despite his own intelligence, has a Ph.D., and whose writing doesn't sound like a Ph.D. thesis.
