This story is insightful, funny and unfiltered. It's a unique opportunity to look into the life of someone with Asperger's.
I loved this book!! It gave me great insight into my sons life. In early years I was determined to make him look at people in the eyes among other things Aspie's avoid doing because I felt it was disrespectful not understanding it had nothing to do with respect at all.
I wanted to read/listen to this book because I have recently realized I likely have Asperger's. I am 56 years old and have never had a clue. I will admit that it was not exactly what I expected it to be. Until chapter 20, it just seemed like a guy telling a bunch of stories about his life that weren't of particular interest to me. However, I am glad I kept listening. Chapter 20 until the end of the book made it all worthwhile. The insight in these chapters is remarkable and has helped me to see that I am not just a useless loner who has never really understood the society in which I live...that there are other people--likely very many other people--who see things from the same perspective as do I. I personally feel the narrator did an excellent job at keeping me interested throughout by his inflections and tone of voice.
As the parent of a child with Aspergers, I couldn't have asked for a better book to give me an insight into what my own child may be experiencing. This is a must-read for anyone dealing with Aspergers, and a fascinating look at the life and struggles of an interesting and unique individual for everyone else.
Excellent and insightful. A good read / listen. The author has succeeded in bring us into his world. Very enjoyable / enthralling.
