Charlotte Moore has three children: the two oldest, George and Sam, are autistic; the youngest Jake is not.
In this extraordinary book, which combines personal memoir with the most recent known information on this most fascinating and elusive of conditions, she describes the circumstances of their birth, behaviour, diagnosis, treatment - and brilliantly conveys what daily life is like for a family with autism.
It's an invaluable book for anyone with an interest in childhood and child development.
George and Sam was published to huge acclaim by Viking Penguin in 2004 - it was immediately regarded as one of the key books on autism.
In this new edition Charlotte Moore brings the story up to date by describing the boys' passage through adolescence and its impact on her family.
