Recommended for: Anyone wanting to understand more about autism

I loooooooved this book, but primarily because as a Child Therapist who specialized in working with kids with Asperger's Disorder, I was *stunned* but how competently, compassionately, and dead-on accurately the author told this first-person story. The gem of this book isn't the plot, it's the writing, and the lesson, too, is in the *spectacular* representation of the thinking process of a person with high-functioning autism. Brilliant.
