From Teri Arranga:

Mark Blaxill and Dan Olmsted's new book, The Age of Autism: Mercury, Medicine, and a Manmade Epidemic, is one of my favorite books, and I consider it essential for any library as it grasps not just history and science related to the autism community and children's health, but it also presents a much larger public health perspective upon with the foundations of psychoanalytic thought and much of medicine are based. I found this book impressive, comprehensive, fascinating, and engaging. It's impressive and comprehensive to me because I know enough about the topic to see that Mark and Dan did an excellent job covering it, capturing the scope plus including relevant and fascinating details that I did not know. I also found the narrative style highly engaging as well as easy to read. This book is a classic that will remain relevant for generations to come.

Hi terri,

I apologize for not writing sooner. I have been driving a truck after being out of work for 2 years. I'm working 60 to 80 hours a week. I want to thank you and Ed for giving me louise habakus phone number. volunteering at the rally meant alot to me, I think it went very well and I'm looking forward to helping Autismone and the center for personal rights. I look forward to reading the book. I think I mentioned this before, Kathy was in school in 1962 when the teacher noticed something was wrong. she was in 1st grade and they ended up calling my mother to pick her up. my mom took kathy to the doctor and they said she had a virus that caused her brain damage. The truth is finaly coming out and they won't be able to hide any longer. Thanks again for everything you do. Kathy said The other week" You Know Life doesn't get easier" I looked at her thinking I would see sadness but she had this look like she was ready to meet it head on and I thought later If life is hard then knowing that makes it easier. Does that make sense? Take Care
