A playful guide to understanding the ways of 'normal people', The Autist's Guide to the Galaxy flips our usual scripts about neurodiversity.

Following on from her internationally successful memoir, The Autists, Clara T rnvall has written a fun, comprehensive, and accessible explanation of neurotypical, or 'normal', behaviour. Full of facts, tips, and tests, and developed with input from other autists, this book places the difficulties autists face in the context of a world built for the neurotypical majority. It will help neurodiverse people - and their families, friends, and loved ones - navigate this world, nurture stronger relationships, and thrive.

Praise for The Autists-

'T rnvall has written an important, illuminating first book, one that deserves to sit alongside the best insider accounts of autism ... The Autists should be required reading for all parents, partners, friends and colleagues of anyone on the autism spectrum, as well as a road map for autistic women navigating the neurotypical world.'
-James Cook, Times Literary Supplement

'Even if you ought to avoid hyping the autistic as superheroes, T rnvall shows that conformity to the norm is a ludicrous waste of the power in these beautiful brains.'
-Dagens Nyheter

'T rnvall was diagnosed as autistic at the age of forty-two, and The Autists takes her own experience as a lens through which to explore the phenomena and experiences of autistic women more generally. Its research is wide-ranging ... I was particularly delighted by T rnvall's chapter on language, "Too Much Faith in Words".'
-Caitlin McGregor, Sydney Review of Books
