So far, so good. He doesn't have the brilliant flare that his brother has, but he definitely has a great story to tell and tells it pretty well.

While I know I don't have Asperger's, alot of the things he said struck home with me--I dislike looking people in the eyes, especially strangers, though I know I need to so I force myself. I definitely don't have the intense concentration that Aspergians have.

I think has a stand alone book this might be interesting for people who know someone with Asperger's or deal with people with Asperger's, but probably not the general public. I think people who are familiar with Burroughs' books will enjoy the alternative view into the family's life and more development into Burroughs' brother's life.

I feel there are better books out there, but this is worth reading. It's easy to read and doesn't take long.
