I liked this book a lot, it is so well written, it is a compliment to the author. What a gifted person, his ability to write and the accomplishments he has made in his life are amazing. His interest and ability with languages encourages one to want to learn other languages and his explanations of language and how it can be learned lead you to believe that you can. This book causes you to examine yourself and ponder the possibility of where you might fall on "the spectrum"! Someone once told me that it is suspected that everyone falls somewhere on "the spectrum" and I have come to believe this the more I read about this affliction. I think "the spectrum" is very extensive and ranges from what we consider is "normal" down to the lowest possible function on the scale.
