What a delightful book! Edward has Asperger's Syndrome; he is a high-functioning autistic man with OCD. The 600 hours is how he prefers to think of the 25 day time period the book covers. What amazed me was the way the author had the thinking process down pat! Think of RAIN MAN and you'll get an idea of what the book sounds like.

I had moments when I laughed out loud, chuckled and cried for Edward. If you know someone with this condition or even are just interested in it, read this one! It was delightful!

Lisa Thanks for recommending. I have worked with autistic children and adults so this is interesting to me.

Captain Sir Roddy, R.N. (Ret.) Excellent review, Sally. It sounds like an amazing book too. Fascinating topic.
