Opinions are generally included like this: "Reader: great book on educational issues." I maintain this list in Unix bib format, then convert it to HTML and the format used in the AUTISM FAQ Memo.

I am updating the list constantly, so changes have been made to it since the writing of this introduction.

Each entry has key words which indicate whether the book is specifically about autism.

If you read this online, the ISBN numbers are links to which might offer the book for sale.
