List of autism related books

Below I list autism spectrum disorder and related books that I’ve read thus far. I shall * the books I’ve found helpful to me as a woman diagnosed in my fifties. There are many more books yet to be read! There are some books not listed because they have been returned to their owner and I haven’t made a note of them.
