As a parent of a child with social delays, I found Shaul's visual "computer metaphor" to be an excellent tool in breaking down the complexity of social exchanges. As a professional, I found the games, worksheets, and concrete strategies provided to be extremely helpful in teaching perspective taking and theory of mind. In our computer savvy world, this book is a must read for helping children of all ages gain social insight.
