“Magnificent…Spellbinding—a fable about greed, power and betrayal told through the lens of autism…Chock-full of suspense and hairpin turns…This book does what no other on autism has done: capture all the slippery, bewildering and deceptive aspects…” – Anne Bauer, Washington Post

“Remarkable… In a Different Key: The Story of Autism tells a riveting tale about how a seemingly rare childhood disorder became a salient fixture in our cultural landscape. – Wall Street Journal

Three-time Emmy-winner and ABC News correspondant John Donvan and Peabody-winner ABC producer Caren Zucker, co-writer of the PBS series Autism Now, have written the definitive history of autism. The New York Times bestselling In A Different Key tells stories of human perseverance while delving deeply into how we understand autism as a diagnosis, a disability, and a social phenomenon.
