    When Judith Newman shared the story of how Apple's electronic personal assistant, Siri, helped Gus, her son who has autism, she received widespread media attention and an outpouring of affection from listeners around the world. Basking in the afterglow of media attention, Gus told anyone who would listen, "I'm a movie star". Judith's story of her son and his bond with Siri was an unusual tribute to technology. While many worry that our electronic gadgets are dumbing us down, she revealed how they can give voice to others.

    No one would consider Judith Newman's domestic life normal. She and her husband keep separate apartments - his filled with twin grand pianos, as befits a former opera singer; hers packed with the clutter and chaos of twin adolescent boys conceived late in life. And one of those boys is Gus, her sweet, complicated, autistic 13-year-old. With honesty and humour, To Siri, with Love chronicles one year in the life of Gus and the family around him - a family with the same crazy ups and downs as any other.
