  1. I'm glad I found a new knitting podcast! And, how funny that this is the first podcast of yours that I have listened to... my son has autism and I was diagnosed with Aspergers as an adult. I loved "The Curious Incident..." and I was just thinking about it yesterday. I think your review of this group of books was very fair. After my sons Dx, I encountered some overly dramatic books written by parents who wanted to look like martyrs so I got much more selective. Your list is very close to mine. Good job. I'm going back to download your older episodes now. Thank you for a nice introduction.

  2. I bought Send in the Idiots, my Godson Devin is 24 and is an aspergerian, my mom read the book and we have now given it to Devin to read, he has read Eyes Wide Shut and Raising Cubby and we thought this would be a good next book, if you can recommend any more Autism books that are uplifting and positive I would appreciate it - - Sharon (aka KnittingAuntie on Rav)
