Publisher's Summary

In her extraordinary work with dolphins, Patricia St. John has broken new ground in opening little-known worlds, all in pursuit of what she fiercely believes in: learning the languages of those who have been unreachable. Using what she has discovered from her years of work with dolphins, St. John is able to break through to autistic children. Her story is a remarkable one.

Said the author: "When I left the pool that first day, I had no way of knowing I was taking the first steps toward breaking the barriers of dolphin-human communication...[or that] I would go on to find a way to use what I'd learned to improve the condition of other humans. At that first meeting, I had no idea how this information would enable me eventually to free autistic children to communicate with those who cared for them and about them."

    "Really Really Awful"

    I have never written a review before, but this book prompted the first. This author shares her insights which are not based on any science and frankly just thoughts that anyone might have. Don't waste your time or money on this book.

    "very good, it's about non-verbal communication"

    This book is about non-verbal communication, the world of dolphins & autistic kids, and being a passive, empathetic, open-minded "listener" is the key to understanding them. I think the other reviews are unfair and contained to their own left brain limits looking for some techie translator; That just doesn't work with Buddha, love, sex, dance, etc.

    "complete waste of time"

    This is 9 hours of dribble about this author's totally mundane daily activities and minute by minutes ruminations. The content has absolutely nothing to do with the language of dolphins or how that might be related to the language and thought of autistic children. A total and complete waste of time to listen to.
