'Reading this felt like being at home - I didn't realise how much I
masked. What an incredible book that I know will be re-read many
*Dr Camilla Pang, author of Explaining Humans*
'Unmasking Autism is at once a most deeply personal and scholarly account of the damage caused by autistic (and all) people leading masked lives, and how unmasking is essential to creating a self-determined, authentic life... This is a remarkable work that will stand at the forefront of the neurodiversity movement'
*Dr Barry M. Prizant, author of Uniquely Human*
"Price's accessible and compassionate writing shines, and readers will feel encouraged to embrace a new understanding of themselves. Its potential to help masked autistic adults, especially those from systemically marginalized backgrounds, makes this book essential for most collections."-Library Journal
'An essential roadmap for autistic people to be themselves'
