If you want to know what it is like inside the mind and life of an individual living with functioning Autism, read this book. It pin points so many of the daily struggles that these individuals have to face each and every day. The book is very matter of fact, of course written by a man with Aspergers Syndrome, and also uses memiors from people involved in every stage of his life. Non-fiction and very very real.
Some great information in this book...it is very enlightening to see it from someone's perspective who has an ASD. I started to lose interest in part of the book when he focuses more on music, which he is very focused on. But it was nice to see that someone with ASD can focus on something and do so well with it...and also use his experiences to help others with an ASD.
This book was written by a person that suffers from aspergers. This should make it a MUST read, but unfortunately I had a family member read it and the first words out of their mouth was, "They're robots!" I've thanked my boss several times for giving me this book as a gift!!!! :(
