Meet thirtysomething dad, Alex. He loves his wife Jody, but has forgotten how to show it. He loves his son Sam, but doesn't understand him. Something has to change. And he needs to start with himself. Meet eight-year-old Sam - beautiful, surprising, autistic. To him the world is a puzzle he can't solve on his own. But when Sam starts to play Minecraft, it opens up a place where Alex and Sam begin to rediscover both themselves and each other. Can one fragmented family put themselves back together, one piece at a time?

Sounds like a self help book-therapeutic for the author.It is interesting for people who don't know anything about autism and could perhaps gain an insight and be more tolerant of bad behaviour in public.It was well written but a little repetitive.Ending was too trite- unlike real life.
