Eight life stories told by people on the autism spectrum, including chapters on subjects like how to get kids off their computers, how to build on their strengths and get back to caring about their lives, and how to find a path to a successful, meaningful life make this a “MUST-READ BOOK.”

The Loving Push is hands down, the best autism book aimed at late teens (through to mid-twenties and sometimes beyond). If you have one of these kids already, this is the book to get.... particularly if they spend "too much time" on the computer and/or in their bedroom.” ―Gavin Bollard, Life with Asperger's Blog

"The Loving Push is therefore aimed at parents, but also teachers and all those who are dealing with individuals with ASD and offers a real guide that suggests how to give the right motivation to their children, helping them to overcome their natural negative attitude towards change and their inability to face new experiences with as positive a mentality as possible." ―Tiziana Benini, Libri da Leggere
