I work in the Psychiatric field and found this book very interesting, especially since it is written from the eyes of a person with Asperger's. Even though a serious subject matter- I laughed with enjoyment as I read most of the book. The stories, as he tell's them, allow you to see the world through his eyes ( Aspergian) which, at times, makes more sense then looking at the world through my eyes. I have a new admiration for people that have either Asbergers or traits. Whether you work in the field or not - sooner or later you will run into someone with Asperger's and you will have a new found respect for people with this syndrome. I also agree with the logic that he has in naming people but that you will better understand after you read this down to earth book.

Finally......a positive, descriptive, beautifully written memoir about living with Aspergers. Hopeful, poignant and often hilarious, Robison's stories taught me far more then I knew before. Salut !! Next on my list, his brother's (Augustan Burrough) memoir, Running With Scissors. Read full review
