In his foreword to the book, Tonny Attwood has stated: "Liane’s autobiography will allow others to understand the world as perceived by a person with Asperger’s Syndrome … I strongly recommend this book for teachers as it will provide the previously illusive reasons for behaviours that are considered unconventional or appear to be abnormal. Specialists and therapists who diagnose such children will find the book a treasure trove of information and insight … [this] book will be an inspiration for thousands of people throughout the world."
