Summary This book is a compelling collection of personal accounts from people on the autism spectrum and those who care for them. The essays in this collection tell of the positive and negative effects of autism on individuals and families, and pose the question: is a diagnosis on the autism spectrum a puzzle to be solved, or something to be embraced?
