Books to avoid

I hate to be negative, but at least one book is nearly universally considered to be very misleading:

  • The Empty Fortress

Virtually every other book which has received negative comments also has supporters. Though Donna Williams’ books are popular and highly praised, some people suggest they show an atypical type of autism, thus can mislead the reader. The books which emphasize one particular treatment are not thought highly of by supporters of other treatments, especially if the book has negative things to say about other treatments. Two other such books:

  • Theory of Mind
  • A Child of Eternity

Theory of Mind is probably a good book which bothers some people because of some of its conclusions. A Child of Eternity is cited as an interesting book. It apparently accepts some ESP-explanations of some of the phenomena it reports, which will turn off some readers.

Movie Suggestions

  • “Rain Man”
  • “Forest Gump”

Related Books

These are books not specifically about autism that have been recommended by readers of the AUTISM list. Most such books have been on the problems associated with sensitivity to food and other substances.
