    I'm doing lots of reading at mo because was advised to by the Family and Child Therapy Centre that we were referred with my son... he has SPLD (rough diagnosis given about 18 months ago) and we have been referred on to more specialists for a more thorough diagnosis... they said we should read up on Autism Spectrum so I am doing .. Luck and Jacque write excellently... when I finished Jacqui's book I felt like I had read something by one of my friends

    Have you read any other books on the subject that you could recommend for me to get ? Love n Sunshine Sarah xxx

    About four or five years ago I read 'Nobody, Nowhere' by Donna Williams which is her biography and I remember as being whoa - its been a while though.

    A lot of our books are by Lorna Wing - we've lent most of them out to folk and never got 'em back so I guess you could say they're alright.

    Hope that helps

    I seldom read fiction but I have a constant thirst for knowledge. I go to Wikipedia several times a week but also pick up the old hard copy encyclopedias now and then. Being a wordsmith I often read books on the English language.
    Last week I bought a copy of Nexus that I have not done so for quite a while.

    Chronicles vol. 1 by Bob Dylan

    Bought this book about a year ago but never read more than a few pages. Im enjoying it more now for some reason, not sure why. Its quite descriptive and gives you an idea of what he's really like. The bad point is he mentions a lot of bands and people Ive never heard of before.

    Just started Thud, Terry Pratchett's latest and re-reading West Ham Till I Die by Robert Banks, a footie fans memories of the trials and tribulations of supporting the best team in London, well East London anyway. It is a very funny read even if you have no interest in football.

    Here's a short piece about a game in Sept '98......

    "It seemed all the players had a train to catch and wanted Wimbledon out of the way as soon as possible, as we raced into a 3-0 lead inside 30 minutes. Most of them must have caught that train at half time, as Wimbledon pulled themselves up by thier bootlaces to win the game 4-3."

    Just finished "The Hobbit" (brilliant) and "The Kraken Wakes" by John Wyndham (brilliant, but scary) and started on "Catch 22". I have tried reading it before and never really got into it, i am enjoying it a lot more this time though.
    It would be nice if schools and hopitals had all the money they needed and the army had to hold jumble sales to buy guns...

    John Wyndham's one of the best sci-fi writers in my opinion. I love all of his stuff. Day of the Triffids - classic! I remember being frightened by the film too when I first saw it. I watched it again quite recently and it doesn't quite cut it with todays special effects extravaganzas. Still enjoyable though.

    I'm re-reading Marian Green's 'The gentle arts of natural magic'. I first read it last year and really enjoyed her simple and easy to read style. I only get through about a page a day though as it so sets you thinking you lose track of time. Or maybe that's just me

    The Web of Deceit: Britain's Real Role in the World by Mark Curtis


    To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
    Proud to be British?, June 17, 2004
    Reviewer: Colin Dean from Bielefeld-Heepen Germany Well if you thought that the UK was a force for good in the world then this book will shake your assumptions. In case after case Mark Curtis reveals the immoral and self centred nature of British foreign policy. We will do anything to make a shilling; destroy governments, sell arms to despots, cuddle up with tyrants and to hell with the consequences for the little people. This is a very well researched and disturbing read. Our behaviour in the post WW2 period has been nothing short of murderous. No matter who was in power at Westminster the crimes flowed on and nobody cared. A million dead in Indonesia, thousands dead in Afghanistan, Diego Garcia's population uprooted and then deserted, the sorry tale goes on.
    Mark Curtis has little good to say about any of our recent politicians. The blessed Blair, that fudamentalist Christian and latter day crusader has been very effective in slaughtering Muslims, especially babies, but "to mention the indictment of Tony Blair for war crimes, to oppose British cooperation with the US because it is a consistent supporter of human rights abuses overseas, or even to end arms exports is "unthinkable" in the mainstream and would invite ridicule"

    If you love the UK then read this book because somehow we need to change what is going on and you cannot do that unless you know what has been done in your name. Ethical foreign policy? You will not find it here.
    It's not a duck, it's a propaganda.

    LOL yay! I'm sure she'd probably be into that!!!! I've met a few authors like that, especially those in the 'pagan' genre. On the other hand, I've met some really geniunely lovely ones. They're just people I guess.....Anyway, without dragging the discussion further off topic - what shall I read next?

    I have just started reading Wild Witchcraft by her also. I won't be able to read it now without imagining her speaking in a snooty voice, hehe. Oh well.
    I'm also in the middle of The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf (highly recommended!) and Animal Farm.

    I really enjoyed "The Kraken" by John Wyndham, so i picked up a copy of "The Chrysalids" when i saw it in the second hand book shop. Just getting into it, but it seems to be very good aswell. I also found "The Earth Gods" by Kahlil Gibran, which is excellent. and Platos "Republic", which i haven't read much of yet, but is fairly interesting.
    It would be nice if schools and hopitals had all the money they needed and the army had to hold jumble sales to buy guns...
