No matter how odd he is, Jesse Saperstein can laugh at himself. I'm particularly taken with his explanations of popular culture. His descriptions of his personal quirks, how some have been overcome and others simply adapted to, are howling good laughs in some instances, painfully touching reads in others.

While similar, every person with Asperger's is unique. There may be a little bit of Asperger's in many of us. We would all do well to get past tolerating quirkiness to accepting it and recognizing the differences as strengths instead of defects.

Best book I've read yet about Asperger's. I'm now encouraged to write my own.
