David Finch has the rare qualities of not only being a great writer, but also a great speaker. He came to give a book talk, but instead, held an audience captive with a deeply moving personal story.

We had David come to speak to therapists & educators in our community. I have been a therapist for over 15 years & I have never understood Asperger's more than after hearing David's experience w/ it firsthand.
