Heartbreakingly honest, moving and inspiring, Chloe Maxwell and Mat Rogers share their journey of discovery with their autistic son, Max.
'It feels terrible for your son to want to hurt you so bad that you bleed, and to look into his beautiful eyes and see nothing but hatred. What mother could deal with that? Not me, that's for sure. I loved my son, but I was no longer sure whether I was the right mother for this job.' Chloe Maxwell seemed to be living the dream: discovered at sixteen as a model, she went on to become a household name as a tV personality. then she met rugby star Mat Rogers and a great romance was born. Inside, though, Chloe was fighting her own demons: her parents' separation in her teens had led to a deep sense of insecurity. then Mat's father, football legend Steve Rogers, died after taking prescription drugs and alcohol. Chloe treated her wounds with an 'alcohol Band-aid' until the birth of Mat and Chloe's son, Max, heralded a new beginning. But it soon became clear that Max was not like other boys: the few words he learned faded away, his rages transcended any regular toddler tantrums, and he seemed to exist in a bubble, cut off from everyone. Heartbreakingly honest and moving, LIVING WItH MAX is the story of how Chloe and her family learned to face the challenges of autism and release the little boy locked within.

    Read this book in a night and was moved and grateful for the insight and courage shown by Chloe Rogers. Her denial of Max's condition is something that even professionals have when looking at a child they wish was fine, but know he isn't. I don't know that I have gained any further knowledge of ASD but I have gained a very important fact. Mothers ( and their family's) need more care, more understanding,more compassion and decidedly more help in caring for their challenging children and it is heartbreaking to read of struggles that parents who do not have the money for the necessary recourses that are required cope. It makes it all the more important for all Australians to campaign for equal rights for our special needs children, And to do all in their power not to forget this very important group of children who do not benefit on a 2 year waiting list seeking treatment. Early intervention has to be higher on the governments list of health projects. Stand up and fight like Chloe.

    By MissMollywolly
    This book is such a lovely read. It explains a lot of things about autism in a user-friendly way. I have recommended this book to several people. The way this book reads is wonderful! Thank you Chloe, Mat and family for allowing us (parents of autistic cherubs) to realise that we aren't alone! I laughed, cried and felt moments of achievement along the way with this book! THANK YOU

    This is a no holds barred account of life with a child on the spectrum. My hat goes off to both Chloe Maxwell and Mat Rogers for putting this out there. Their dedication to their charity to raise funds to help those less fortunate in their situation is a tribute to them. I can only imagine what is like to have the feeling that you felt. Your story brought me to the brink of sobbing to laughing at some of your stories. It truly is inspirational that you have put yourself out there. Well done!
