Through Goldberg’s personal anecdotes, case studies, and original research, you will come to understand that autism is:
Not psychological or developmental—it is a medical disease.
Caused by a dysfunction in the neuro–immune system. Similar to ADD/ADHD and chronic fatigue in that they all have different "labels" but are variations on the same thing: neuro-immune dysfunction.
In order to save children from the disease and social stigma of autism, Dr. Goldberg unpacks the myth behind the illness and provides a wealth of diagnostic and treatment information that will transform your own life and the lives of those around you.

Overall good book takes an open mind
Where does The Myth of Autism rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book is quite a bit different than most books I read or listen to so that is a difficult question to answer and I will leave blank.
What other book might you compare The Myth of Autism to and why?
I have no book to compare to.
What about Clinton Wade’s performance did you like?
Clinton Wade seemed to do OK for how the book is written. Lots of information and not many chances for expression of emotions even though he seemed to do well when there was.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A documentary of a different approach to Autism.
Any additional comments?
This is a good book with an open mind. I really wish the Author would not have obsessed with the differences in diagnosis. For example, a diagnosis of Bipolar disorder even though it is a psychological disorder Bipolar disorder can be derived from physical or mental abuse creating a psychological disorder. So his argument against what we call Autism is a waste of time for me. Even though I think what he says could absolutely be right about treating someone with Autism. I would instead title the book something like "The Goldberg Solution to Autism" or something much simpler and then compare how diet, allergies, inflammation, medications he uses vs the common methods that have shown little success or have even created more complications.

good read, therapy-oriented
If you could sum up The Myth of Autism in three words, what would they be?
very good book, therapy-oriented. i was hoping for a wider discussion about the theory and less about treatment but for people dealing with autism in their day to day routine it's a must.
Have you listened to any of Clinton Wade’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
i would love to buy a book that talks about the theory in a wider aspect, without therapy issues.
