New Review – Was Yosef on the Spectrum

Elisabeth Wiklander, Neurodiversity Advocate

“A vivid and thought provoking book highlighting contemporary ideas of cognitive diversity through a story long told. Prof. Levine brings a unique angle to the biblical narrative of Joseph by combining deep knowledge from ancient Jewish scriptures with profound insights of life on the autism spectrum. The descriptions of Joseph’s success through Pharaoh’s accommodations resonate with today’s DEI efforts with regards to neurodiversity; lifting invisible barriers in social construct and using strength based approaches to allow for contributions from neurodivergent talents and skills that the world needs. A highly interesting and captivating read with many dimensions to explore.”
