Terrible narration

I feel that this would have been an interesting helpful book if I had finished it. However the narrator seemed uninterested and was difficult to listen to.

Narration made it difficult to finish

Narration was not fluid. I was expecting a more professional read. Topics of use for parents.

Not very well suited for an audiobook

Not sure why they added this title to audiobooks. It isn't suited for that purpose. There may be some good information, but It's about as engaging as listening to someone reading a dissertation on the ingredients of oatmeal. It reminds me of textbooks from years ago. I didn't want to be harsh, but it's tough finding interesting, helpful, and relatable books on this subject. I encourage the writers to take another shot at it because there are so many people out there looking for help.

Practical but slow

As someone with autistic, female family members this book rung true and had lots of practical advice. However, I was left thinking that the girls have been sold short. Lots of focus on dealing with puberty, friendships, school etc... and rather repetitive and slow. Perhaps this would be more useful for a family that only has young autistic girls rather than a family that has had to learn the hard way and has older family members with ASD. I may be wrong but it was lacking focus on our minds which are just as interesting as the boys’ minds. I had to stop listening part way through. I much prefer Sarah Hendrickx’s “Women and girls with autism spectrum disorder”.

Interesting but very badly narrated

A very interesting book with very useful information especially for parents with young girls with ASD. However, the narrator's performance is very bad, it needs a lot of editing. It's a shame because the content of the book is quite good but the narrator makes it difficult to follow.

Excellent insight to female presentation of Autism

I found this book very insightful. There was a lot of detail given into how female present in autism and how it differs to male presentation in autism. I wish that Tony would read his parts of audiobooks because he is much more animated when he talks and I can understand better. I know this having listened to a lot of his YouTube stuff.
