A review of Silberman's book is available at http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/au...

There is a short interview with Wired at http://a4.org.au/node/1022 ... and there have also been responses that say Please Stop Whitewashing Autism: NeuroTribes calls autism a "gift," but parents paint a much different picture.
