From the Publisher
Editors Note In an entertaining and inspirational memoir of living with Asperger's Syndrome, the author describes life growing up different in an unusual family, his unusual talents, his struggle to live a "normal" life, his diagnosis at the age of forty with Asperger's, and the dramatic changes that have occurred since that diagnosis. 250,000 first printing.
Annotation John Elder Robison, the older brother of best-selling memoirist Augusten Burroughs, never felt comfortable around other humans, particularly his alcoholic father and deranged mother, and instead retreated into the comfortingly logical world of machines, eventually becoming one of the special effects technicians for the band Kiss. Robison was considered strange all his life, but it was not until middle age that he was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism that makes it difficult to pick up on social cues, and can turn the human world into a bewildering and confusing place. In his intelligent and frequently funny memoir, Robison describes the nature of his condition and wonderfully captures his peculiar but fascinating perspective on the world around him.
