Charlotte Moore however has produced a book that I would have loved to have written myself. I found myself wondering more about her ex-husband and his involvement with the children. Apparently he does care for them on weekends, etc. but she clearly made a decision to leave him out of the book.

I love this book! Moore gives a hilarious yet sometimes sombering description of life with not one but two boys with Autism Spectrum disorder. It offers tons of insight for those completely unfamiliar with ASD, and great anecdotes, examples, and treatment options for those who are but might be looking to learn more

Written with the clarity of a good investigative reporter, and the huge heart of a mother, this book details the reality of autism in a British family. With humor and courage, Mrs. Moore doesn't clean up the picture; we get an intimate view of the daily challenge of living with two autistic boys. As she researches the disorder and tries everything she can to help her sons, she gives the reader a comparison of how the United Kingdom deals with autism, versus how America is dealing with it. A "must read" for anyone close to or caring about an autistic child.

As a psychologist who works with children with autism, I have read many of the books written by parents so I can have a better understanding of their experience. Many of the books focus on some of the alternative treatments and how one or another "cured" their child. This is not the case with "George and Sam". Charlotte Moore does describe treatments that she has tried, and discusses the pros and cons of the outcome in a realistic way. She doesn't expect to find a miracle cure, just treatments that can improve her boys' quality of life. She wholly accepts who they are. She doesn't lead the reader to believe that if they try a particular treatment their child will be cured. I believe this is a great book for parents, especially those who have a child that is newly diagnosed.

My daughter read this book for a class, and she loved it. She actually ended up wanting another book on a child raised with Autism after reading this one. She said that this book was such a fast read for her, written in basic everyday language, making Autism easy to understand. The way the mother in this book describes her everyday troubles and joys raising two boys with autism was so interesting to read. A definite must read for anyone interested in autism or raising someone with autism.

George and Sam is an exquisite venture into the challenges, beauty and humor of this oftentimes peculiar condition. I actually laughed out loud reading about some of their antics, reflecting on some of those I've experienced with my own young granddaughter, who manages to tickle me about something every time we're together. If you want to get an in-depth understanding of what autism really is, this is a must-read. Deborah A. Mobley, Temple Hills, Maryland

I learned quite a bit about Autism, I have a family member who has Autism and several friends either with Autism or a child living with it. I have found things I have done right and several I have done wrong, that could have caused a friend to have a more severe reaction, because of my lack of knowledge. Thank you for writing this book.

Thank you for writing a funny, realistic, non martyr, brave, and accepting account of what it's like to be a parent of an autsitic child.
If there is Autism in your family this book helps the parent/caregiver understand what is going on with their child.
