    "An informative look at autism"
    If you could sum up The Way I See It in three words, what would they be?

    informative
    interesting
    knowledgable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Way I See It?

    The whole book was pretty memorable really.


    What three words best describe Laural Merlington’s voice?

    Sounds strangely like Betty White
    Slightly robotic - sometimes it was hard to know whether it was a human or a computer program reading which distracted from the text somewhat; she's not always a smooth reader


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The book is more informative than moving


    Any additional comments?

    I originally thought I'd skip chapters not so relevant to my situation, but I ended up listening to the whole book, enthralled. A lot of a-ha moments and much information that I can use.
