User Review  - Kelly-Louise - Goodreads

John Elder Robison grew up in the 60s, before they knew about an autism spectrum or Asperger's. Back then, kids with autism were the nonverbal ones stimming all day in a corner, not kids like him. So ... Read full review

User Review  - Laura Gaspard - Goodreads

This book moved really slow for me. glad that the end had a nice wrap up. Seemed that he focus a lot of his writing on his time with KISS and career, rather than on dealing and learning about his syndrome in those circumstances. Read full review

Review: Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's

User Review  - Krista - Goodreads

Asperger's is not a disease. It's a way of being. There is no cure, nor is there a need for one. I've read quite a bit of Augusten Burroughs -- for the most part when his various books first came out ... Read full review

User Review  - Oriyah Nitkin - Goodreads

Yes, it's true. I'm a bad person. I judge books by their covers. And when I saw this lying on my friend's shelf during her moving sale, it was screaming "READ ME!" even before I got close enough to ... Read full review

User Review  - Lydia LaPutka - Goodreads

This was an interesting read. I particularly enjoyed Robison's writings of his childhood. Maybe "enjoyed" is not the correct word since there was so much abuse. I was engaged and curious to see who on ... Read full review
