This book is a spectacular marriage of psychology and physiology - attitude/emotion and biology. You won't view fear or sadness as the only human responses to having a loved one diagnosed with autism or Alzheimer's and it will no longer be possible for you to be able to look at someone you care about with neurological challenged and simultaneously think to yourself, "there's nothing I can do to meaningfully impact my loved one's condition." The author's combined their professional experiences with Autism with their personal experiences in caring with a parent with Alzheimer's. They noted the similarities between the two disabling conditions. Book also includes contributed stories from people with Autism and Alzheimer's along with their families stories.
