Again, author argues against autism
As with her other book I read, Snow argues against autism and the like. She claims the possibility that the autistic brain is underdeveloped sociallly, and has not yet achieved the same evolutionary advancements as neurotypicals. However, there has been much evidence and more theories of Autism being the next step in evolution, producing very bright problem solvers and inventors.
I understand Snow labels this book as an argument, so she is free to include her own opinion. But, she just comes across as condescending towards those with neurological disorders.

This author enjoyed a severity of ignorance I had heretofore not thought possible. He includes people with autism and psychotic killers on the same spectrum of humanity.
People with and without autism can be both killers or saints, and everything in between. Autism is a biological difference in how information is perceived, interpreted, and expressed: it has nothing to do with personality.
Autistics, or people with autism, are shy introverts, outgoing extroverts, compassionate, selfish, giving, narcissistic, kind, cruel... in short, "If you've met one person with autism, you're met one person with autism".
This tome represents the worst possible misinformation regarding people with autism today.
