In a Different Key – Review


Book Review of
 
“In a Different Key”
by John Donvan and Caren Zucker
 
I really enjoyed this lengthy book which I would describe as complementary to ‘Neurotribes’ by Steve Silberman. It is very much a USA centred perspective although it has interesting things to say about the situation here in the UK.
 
These journalists paint engaging pictures of the major players in the history of autism in some depth. The infamous MMR scandal which took up so much time and so many resources before being finally laid to rest in a US courtroom drama is one of the threads of this story.
 
The origin of the loud and proud autistic movement is also discussed. I heartily recommend this book to you all as it is interesting and educational.
