If you seek to understand autism, do not spend time listening to this. I misunderstood the title to mean that the book would attempt (at least) to explain autism. I guess it was about the history of how people (mostly doctors and parents) have sought to 'understand autism'.
The history chapters are okay.
The modern controversy chapters are quite bizarrely approached. She subscribes to the common media tactic of giving equal time to 'both sides' of the issue(s) discussed. As is they carry equal weight and support. It is slightly refreshing to find a moderate voice, but the bizarreness is in the use of the "parents' love" lens to see the arguments. She disregards the reality of real world conflict and politics and seems to think that everything can just be neat and tidy if we wrap it up in a lovely bow. A bow of a parent's love for their child. So odd.
