4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book for Anybody Who Wants to Know More About Or Has Been Touched by Autism Aug. 26 2011
By Evan Jacobs - Published on
Format:Perfect Paperback
You Don't Need To Know That is the kind of book that really helps put something like Autism in perspective. While Autism has been within our society for a very long time, there were many years when people didn't know what it was. Even now people think they know what it is, why some people have Autism and other's do not, how these people can be "recovered," etc. The reality is that in spite of all of this conjecture and medical treatments there is still much about Autism that is unknown.

Now imagine being a parent when services for Autism weren't readily available. Try and understand what it might be like to have one child that is "neurologically typical" and the other one does not display those traits. Put yourself in the shoes of somebody who feels like they have to get ready for battle, each and every time they have a meeting with school administrations about their child's education.

If you can do that... if you want to know what world is like... if you are just curious about what Autism is... then you MUST read this book.

And amidst its pages you will find a tale that is both funny, heartbreaking, hopeful, and real.

This book so so amazing! I am a mother of a child with Autism, and this book is the real deal. It is not a sugar coated "i cured my kid" kind of book. It is inspirational and well written. I highly recomend it to anybody who is interested in Autism. Great book!

By Amazon VIP - Published on
Format:Perfect Paperback
A well-written and inspiring book! I read this book in one sitting. I highly recommend this to everyone - not only to someone who has an autistic family member, but to anyone who is currently dealing with any kind of life challenges. Leslie Crucil, the author, shared different stories on her life struggles raising her autistic daughter.
