I have not laughed so hard at a book in a long time. The author's unique perspective on social rules is priceless. He has no choice but to see the truth in all the obscure, unwritten rules that society creates, and he writes about it so clearly.

Good enough book, helps give an understanding of Asperger's. Also has large print and is a fairly simple read.

This is an interesting memoir but it lost my attention towards the end. Still, it was educational and I'm glad I read it.

John Elder illuminates the reality of his Aspergian world in an enjoyable manner and offers insights and help for people who love (and deal with) those with Asperger's Syndrome.

John Elder Robison writes great books dealing with Asperger's (I read Look Me In the Eye too). It was probably one of the more uplifting books I've read on Asperger's. I read it many years ago and wanted to have my teenaged son with Asperger's read it, but there were many references to drugs, sex, alcohol, etc. and I thought he was too young at the time. He is 17 and read it just recently.

This book, however, offers a really good look at how an Aspie views the world and offers great practical advice on how to deal the many situations that crop up in the "typical" world. Great book.
