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.
