    Ever since he was small, John Robison had longed to connect with other people, but by the time he was a teenager, his odd habits--an inclination to blurt out non sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes (and stick his younger brother in them)--had earned him the label "social deviant." No guidance came from his mother, who conversed with light fixtures, or his father, who spent evenings pickling himself in sherry. It was no wonder he gravitated to machines, which could, at least, be counted on ... Show more

Excellent read!

by Janet M on Jul 31, 2014

This book is excellent for anyone who has a friend, friend's family member, their own family member, or themselves with Asperger's! It gives a lot of hope for a successful life! I had read the book on my NOOK because my sister is raising a grandson with Asperger's. I bought a copy of the book for her, as well as for a friend, whose grandson also has it. They are both SUPER grateful to get a copy of it. Thanks for sending the copies as quickly as you did!


From the inside

by me78too on Dec 24, 2009

I was very interested, in this book, because I have a 12 year old grandson who has Aspergers. It gave me a better view of how he felt from the inside. It has been read by his mother and is now being read by an aunt who has an autistic daughter.

I have 2 children with autism, my oldest having Asperger's. As soon as I saw the front cover of the book the title struck me; I knew it was a biography about someone with autism. John Robison shows us what it feels like to grow up with Asperger's, how different he felt, and not knowing why. I really enjoyed the stories he told about the pranks he pulled, and sometimes how such complicated things often are really just so simple if you think about it. I enjoyed this book very much.


inside Asperger's

by large on Jan 17, 2008

After reading several "technical" books on this subject, this was a breath of fresh air. A true "inside" look at Asperber's. Would recommend this book to anyone trying to understand the thought processes of a child or adult with Asperger's. A great read!
