We're Not Broken (Paperback, 2022, Mariner Books) 4 stars

More for non-autists, but better than Silberman

4 stars

I've seen this book paired with "Unmasking Autism" which feels like a slightly odd choice. While that book felt like more of an actionable book, this feels more educational for people who don't know much about autism. I think it fills that role better than Silberman's book, which always seems to be held up as the 'first book you should read', partly because it's written 'from the inside', as it were, and partly because it doesn't suffer from that book's unfortunate perspective on Asperger. Still pretty useful, especially in its coverage of support needs and feeling comfortable requiring accommodations.
