Críticas:

"Through their struggles and triumphs, Jerry and Mary Newport show us all what it is to be human and how love truly can conquer all."

-- Stephen Shore, author of "Beyond the Wall: Personal Experiences with Autism and Asperger Syndrome"

"This remarkable book puts a human face on Asperger's syndrome by taking the reader into the thoughts and feelings of two extraordinary and gifted individuals. I have worked with children and adults with Asperger's syndrome for decades, but the Newports' book has given me more salient information about this puzzling disorder than can be found in any textbook. "Mozart and the Whale" is an important and valuable book that tells its story with respect and dignity. It will greatly enhance your understanding of these special folks...and the disorder that impacts them daily."

-- Richard Lavoie, author of "It's So Much Work to Be Your Friend"

"Where most tales of tribulation pander to sentimentality, Jerry and Mary take us on their journey to love with gut-wrenching honesty and genuine poetry."

-- Eustacia Cutler, author of "A Thorn in My Pocket: Temple Grandin's Mother Tells the Family Story"

"If you ever wanted to learn anything about what Asperger's syndrome is really like, this is the book to read."

-- Valerie Paradiz, Ph.D., author of "Elijah's Cup" and "Clever Maids"

"A fantastic voyage into two different kinds of minds. Absolutely riveting." -- Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation

"Readers will be touched and inspired by this book that proves that against all odds, love does occasionally triumph over all." -- Tucson Citizen

Reseña del editor:

When Jerry and Mary Newport met, the connection was instant. A musical genius and a mathematical wonder, the two shared astronomic IQs, but they also shared something else -- they both were diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism that affects millions of Americans and makes social contact painfully unbearable. When Jerry and Mary married, they were catapulted into the limelight. They appeared on 60 Minutes and soon were known as "superstars in the world of autism," shining examples of two people who refused to give up in the face of their mutual challenge.
But just when it appeared that their lives would enjoy a fairy-tale ending, their marriage fell apart. The Hollywood feeding frenzy was too much to handle, and they divorced. After heartbreaking years of soul searching, Jerry and Mary remarried. Today, with their union stronger than ever, they have dedicated themselves to helping countless other people with Asperger's and autism lead lives of dignity. Mozart and the Whale is an unforgettable love story of the incredible chronicle of their journey together -- and apart.
