really liked it
bookshelves: 1001, autism

Gives a good idea of what it's like to have asperger's syndrome / high functioning autism. Parts become kind of bland when he describes complex math problems but without them the book wouldn't be the same-- the whole point of the book is to show what it's like in the head of an autistic kid (to those complaining about it).

MY only other complaint was that the book seemed to use the asperger's stereotype-- math genius amongst others.
