Having a child on the spectrum, I really appreciated the opinion of an adult who has lived with Asperger's syndrome. My child does not communicate very well, and John Elder Robison helped me understand a little what goes on in the mind of someone with Asperger's. Read full review

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.
