Wondering About is the personal journey of a mind that has used imagination, curiosity, and wonder to try to make sense of the world using science as the bedrock of the road taken. The journey is personal in that Mr. Strumfels has recently discovered that he suffers from Aspergers? Syndrome, a form of high-functioning autism that makes relating to other human beings extraordinarily difficult. Through the many sufferings of this condition prior to Mr. Strumfels?s diagnosis, his curiosity and passion to understand have allowed him to keep asking questions and develop his own mind to where he can share it with others. - Xlibris Podcast Part 1: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/wondering-about-1 - Xlibris Podcast Part 2: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/wondering-about-2 - Xlibris Podcast Part 3: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/wondering-about-3 - Xlibris Podcast Part 4: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/wondering-about-4 - Xlibris Podcast Part 5: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/wondering-about-5
