When I found out that my son might have Asperger's, my wife found this book. I have to say that I will never tell my son to look me in the eyes again. It is very informative to hear how the authors thought process works to try to deal with my son and help him avoid all the problems the author lived through. The middle part of the book is the story of his life, but the beginning of the book deals more with the syndrome.

Robinson's autobiography offers a look into his past as a young boy growing up with undiagnosed Asperger's Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism. Readers are introduced to John Elder and encouraged to make their own judgments about his quirkiness and behaviors, which would lend itself perfectly to discussion on individuals with disabilities. For mature audiences, this read can open up a conversation about the rights of individuals with disabilities and how they are currently viewed in our society.

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.

I did enjoy the book, but there were some points where I couldn't follow along. I understand he is a very logical thinker, and I think that was very apparent in some parts of the book. He would go on ... Read full review

Fantastic look, especially for an Aspie parent, for what goes on in that complicated, yet fascinating head of the Asperger's child, adolescent and adult. I highly recommend. Read full review
