"Are you beginning to see past the disability and starting to appreciate the gift?"

In this unashamedly honest book, David J. Burns draws on his own lived experience of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to provide guidance on how to take advantage of the supposed disadvantage. The book is filled with often hilarious anecdotes, spanning the confusion of his early diagnosis, to his marriage and life with his four children, as David proffers his advice on how to cope with everything from school work to flirting. Part memoir, part guide, and written with a refreshingly funny outlook, this book can be picked up and dipped into whether you're looking for encouragement, practical coping strategies, or a perspective of life as seen through the lens of ASD.


'Down-to-earth, funny and, above all, encouraging.'
- Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development at UCL

'Do Lemons have Feathers? is an astonishing read; the insights David has and the extraordinary humour he injects into his writing make for a superb book that will entertain and educate simultaneously. If you have any interest in learning about autism from an individual perspective, or simply want to read a fascinating account of life as an autistic person, then this is the book for you.'
- Dr Luke Beardon, The Autism Centre, Sheffield Hallam University
