This was an excellent book written by a man who is an autistic savant. I was very touched by his graciousness and humility. He recounts his childhood, a very difficult and painful time, and yet there is no bitterness. His trials growing up 'different' did not keep him from remaining grateful for his extraordinary gifts, and for the people around him who helped him along the way. I recommend this book to anyone, but especially those who are on the spectrum, as they say, and their family/friends.
