Would you try another book from Karen Weintraub and Martha Herbert and/or Denice Stradling?
No. Having raised a profoundly autistic child, I heard nothing new from this book except that there was more information that had been gathered through the years about treatments I had already heard of. Those parts were somewhat helpful but when the book gave positive feedback to a group that I know to be greedy, takes advantage of emotional parents and fudges the truth quite a bit, I lost all respect for the authors.
I understand how confusing autism treatments are but I have no use for people who are scammers.
Would you ever listen to anything by Karen Weintraub and Martha Herbert again?
Have you listened to any of Denice Stradling’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger, sadness, disappointment but also, gives me more avenues to think about in solving the mysteries involving autism.
Any additional comments?
Considering the conflicts about treatments and the high emotions that are often involved among parents, the authors navigated that emotional territory pretty well.

I have previously read about food allergies and their effect on the human brain, but this book presents an interesting view about what bad food can do, not only to the autistic brain, but to a neurotypical brain, too.
The whole body perspective should be read at least three times, so that all its information could be absorbed. It is very enlightening and informative.
The narrator had a good, not great performance. Sometimes I felt like sleeping while listening, and you should be very alert in order to really sink into this listening.
I really recommend this book for those parents / teachers who are trying to get informed, because there are things here that can be done by these people to improved the lives of those children in need around them.

This is by no means an easy guide for parents, I would recommend 'diet intervention and autism' by Marilyn Le Breton for that which is a straight forward practical guide. However I listened to this audio book 3 or 4 times and it has helped me immensely. My son was only diagnosed 1 year ago and since implementing a GFCFSF diet and gaining insight and tips from this book as well as a book called 'Health nutrition secrets' by Dr Russell Blaylock, his and my life has improved dramatically. I don't usually spend/have the time to write reviews, but I felt the need to share this information in the hope that I might sway another parent to try this out... there is absolutely no harm in trying this. Don't take my word for it, if you haven't already done so watch 'Autism Made in America' and or 'Dr Blaylock Vaccines and Autism' both available on youtube. Hope this helps...Good luck!

"Boring or not?"
The answer to this question is perhaps as ambivalent as autism itself. Whilst the subject is intriguing and interesting, I don't think the book lives up to its expectations. The author has some very helpful ideas about autism, one of the main trains of thought being 'what goes into a body will come out' - with emphasis on healthy eating, vitamin supplements, avoiding foods that are hard to digest, etc.
The authors have researched their subject and are very knowledgeable, albeit perhaps a bit narrow minded. The narrator's voice is irritating to say the least, mainly by being incredibly monotonous. I did check to see whether this was actually a person's voice or whether it was being read by a 'computer voice'.
This book is dry and borders on being boring. However, it does offer a different perspective -the question is whether what the authors had to say could have been said in half the time.
This is not the kind of book that will spark a revolution (there's no spark in it!), but it is well worth reading and has some interesting ideas.
