QT: NeuroTribes review
(don't recall how to make a direct hit; it'll come back...)

My favourite from

"the style of the book is remarkably non-autistic. It's full of long stories and blah blah blah, rather than getting to the point."

Thank you.

How about draw something or take a picture. Or is that "artist".

Pulled over for walking while autistic - almost

Ten metres from my driveway a police car passes, turns in a driveway and comes back - just as I'm turning the key in the door. Missed me (this time).

An autistic friend recognizes the experience. Police cars slow to take a look.

Was I bending sideways at the waist? Was my arm extended (thinking about dance)? Was I staggering?

Hands in pockets might be a no-no. But it's the surest way to lock a more socially-acceptable form.
