    I just started reading this book and thought others might be interested in it. I know that many people loved the podcast that "our Ben" did with the team. This is the story of another autistic young man told by his father who happens to be a dis'er. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2935912 Some of you may have heard how he was the last person to get to ride on Snow White's Scary Adventures before it closed.

    I was able to get the Kindle version from Amazon. It never ceases to amaze me how "one man's dream" continues to affect so many people. :goodvibes

    I enjoyed the blog posts and thought Ben's dad was a really good writer and should do a book. Glad to hear he did:thumbsup2:thumbsup2

    Oh hey, thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. I tried to post about it, but the mods (correctly and understandably) deleted the post as advertising.

    Thanks so much for reading, and if you were so motivated to leave an honest review of the book on Amazon I would be appreciative.

    I'm only halfway through, but so far it has made me both tear up and laugh out loud. :goodvibes I'll be sure to leave a review when I'm finished. Good job, Lokheed. :thumbsup2

    I just found this book on Amazon while searching for something else. I was so excited I came here to see if anyone had posted about it! When I saw the title I immediately thought, "this has to be the boy I read about on the Dis." I wish you great success. :)

    Excited to see this thread. Can't wait to read the book. I debated about the Kindle version, but I collect Disney books and of course this needs to be part of the collection. Sadly, I won't get my copy until Monday though.

    By all means feel free. I can't do it myself for obvious reasons. If you need supporting links I would be happy to give you some suggestions, but knock yourself out.

    Thank you! I just downloaded this to read on a trip I'm taking this weekend. I followed the story on the boards and am looking forward to reading the book.

    I just downloaded this a minute ago and I am really looking forward to reading it.

    I have a 7 year old son on the autism spectrum and Disney World means so much to him.

    When I left the house this morning, there are three monorail tracks set up and running in my livingroom, dining room and hallway since DS is obsessed with them!
