about this item

Cuando Judith Newman relató la historia sobre la forma en que Siri, el asistente personal electrónico de la Apple, le ayudó a Gus, su hijo autista, recibió una amplia atención por parte de los medios, así como el afecto de lectores del mundo entero.

Disfrutando del resplandor que da la atención de los medios, Gus le decía a todo el que lo quisiera escuchar: «Soy una estrella del cine». La historia que relata Judith sobre su hijo y sus lazos con Siri constituye un tributo poco usual a la tecnología. Mientras muchos se preocupan de que nuestros aparatos electrónicos nos están atolondrando, ella revela cómo les pueden dar voz a otros, entre ellos unos niños autistas como Gus, un muchacho al que le cuesta trabajo mirar a los ojos a las personas, se pone a saltar cuando está contento y establece conexiones con unos objetos inanimados a un nivel de empatía. Un libro que nos abre los ojos a los desafíos de una vida situada más allá de lo común y corriente.

When Judith Newman shared the story of how Apple’s electronic personal assistant, Siri, helped Gus, her son who has autism, she received widespread media attention and an outpouring of affection from readers around the world. Basking in the afterglow of media attention, Gus told anyone who would listen, "I’m a movie star."

Judith’s story of her son and his bond with Siri was an unusual tribute to technology. While many worry that our electronic gadgets are dumbing us down, she revealed how they can give voice to others, including children with autism like Gus—a boy who has trouble looking people in the eye, hops when he’s happy, and connects with inanimate objects on an empathetic level.

This book opens our eyes to the magic and challenges of a life beyond the ordinary.
