This is a timely, powerful and important book.
Thought-provoking, deeply empathetic and engaging … I would recommend Murray's book to parents of those on the autism spectrum, educational and clinical practitioners, scientists and academics, film-makers and writers, as well as students and members of the public wanting to know more about autism.
