Everyday Heaven is the much-awaited fourth installment in Donna Williams' series of best-selling autobiographies about her life with autism. A humorous, riveting, roller-coaster of a book, Everyday Heaven covers the monumental nine years from the time Ian left their accidental, 'autistic marriage', to Donna's candid, funny, often bumbling explorations of sexuality and orientation, the challenge of coming to terms with the sudden deaths of those closest to her and finally knowing what life was like without the invisible cage of her 'Exposure Anxiety'. Described as enthralling, deeply moving and gripping, this book will strike a lasting chord not only with autistic readers and professionals seeking to better understand those on the autism spectrum but all of us who simply dream of daring to love deeply, to adventure and to deal triumphantly with the losses along the way.

Everyday Heaven is a book that will appeal to anyone interested in people and what makes them tick. Donna's style and insight grab you from the very first page and leave you wanting to know more about this fascinating woman, the hurdles she finds before her, and the strategies she develops to overcome them. Donna's style and ability to engage an audience have developed over the years, making this her best book yet. I would recommend the book to anyone wanting to explore the experience of autism from the inside and to gain a greater understanding of concepts, such as `difficulty with flexible thinking' and `exposure anxiety', from the point of view of those who live within the reality on a daily basis. -- Good Autism Practice
