“As sweet and funny and sad and true and heartfelt a memoir as one could find.” —from the foreword by Augusten Burroughs

Ever since he was young, John Robison 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, Augusten Burroughs, in them)—had earned him the label “social deviant.” It was not until he was forty that he was diagnosed with a form of autism called Asperger’s syndrome. That understanding transformed the way he saw himself—and the world. A born storyteller, Robison has written a moving, darkly funny memoir about a life that has taken him from developing exploding guitars for KISS to building a family of his own. It’s a strange, sly, indelible account—sometimes alien yet always deeply human.

JOHN ELDER ROBISON lives with his wife and son in Amherst, Massachusetts. His company, J E Robison Service, repairs and restores fine European automobiles.

  • Look me in the eye ;)

    Look me in the eye is a heartwarming story of the underdog. My son has Aspergers, so this one really hit home :) The book was sent right away, in perfect condition, and the price was right!

  • Different Viewpoint

    This book was great. Very descriptive insight into the life of as Aspergian man. Many of the quirks and responses that he describes in his book I have experienced firsthand with both my husband and my step-son. The further explanation of his emotions, responses, etc., helps to understand at least a little of what these gifted people can seldom express out loud.
