    Any additional comments?

    The over-the-top introduction / forword in this book almost made me stop listening. Temple is a great person, but her works and personality can stand on its own without the glorification going on in the introduction part. The whole intro reeks over gratification toward Temple, Namedropping and recounting of how good a friend she is to temple, and untasteful descriptions of people that where not able to help her with her son (like when she sarcastically referred to the psychiatrist that was in the middle of a nervous breakdown). The text by temple was itself good, but the forward / introduction part almost made me stop the audio. But just so it’s clear – Temple, I love you!

    "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.

    What made the experience of listening to The Way I See It the most enjoyable?

    I could do other mundane things whilst reading and it allowed time to pass quicker.


    What other book might you compare The Way I See It to, and why?

    I can't really.


    What about Laural Merlington’s performance did you like?

    Different to get used to the accent, but good.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It raised my awareness considerably.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read, would love to see the film
