Recommended to Jackie by: Karna Bouton

A must read for every parent, friend, student and/or teacher. John Robison's life was troubling and confusing as he unknowingly dealt with Asperger's syndrome. He had a lonely childhood, yet tried to come to terms with why he was different then all his classmates. Not until much later in life, did he realize that he had the classic symptoms of Asperger's syndrome. Brother to Augustin Burroughs, author of Running With Scissors, Robison's memoir is equally as compelling and sad. You will cry, you will laugh, and you will be utterly amazed at his triumphs and tragedies.

I agree with your comments. I loved this book. It gives a whole new perspective on life and makes me think many people have varying degrees of Asperger's.
