Yes, she's amazing. Her book described how the brain of an autistic differs in that they only have the first layer, or covering, whereas a normal brain has a second covering. I'm saying this wrong, but this allows autistics to think like an animal! I plan to buy another copy of this book.
I keep praising the little book written last year by Rupert Isaacson, called Horse Boy. It is even more astounding but in a very different way, about a couple who travel by horseback to Outer Mongolia and Siberia to cure their son of Autism. The couple own a horse ranch here in Texas where they work with horses and disabled children. A recent article in our Austin newspaper, with photo of the little boy, reported he was cured. A very intelligent book, also quite humerous. I learned something very new.
I just noticed this thread has 4 or 5 add'l pages.
