Testimonials About John Smyth and From Autism’s Tomb
What an amazing story! What makes this even more impactful is the fact that John could not share with the world the way he felt until he was nearly 20 years old! This book is written from the perspective of a non-verbal autistic man that grabs at the heart while at the same time helping us realize what he went through.
John does a great job sharing his experience and giving very specific suggestions on how people can understand those with autism and relate to them. He also has a very specific message for those struggling with not being able to communicate.
Book Review from Amazon.com
I want to tell you that this book had a profound impact on me! This morning, (after little sleep), I am filled with a deep sense of wholeness as if a cavern of awareness suddenly opened up beneath my feet and its radiance rose up surrounding me and penetrating my flesh with a resurgence of energy, confidence and determination. My spirit is lighter and my strength has doubled. I praise God for giving you the gift you now share with all of us.”

… As I read…, I felt goose bumps develop all over my body. I was incredibly moved, touched and inspired at the same time.
Much of my life has been involved with teaching and motivating people to become stronger physically but more important, mentally. As a SEAL we call this “strengthening our Combat Mindset”. As a motivator, I call this “Reaching Beyond Boundaries”.
John understands these concepts better than I do…
With great respect and admiration… “
