    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

    “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.

      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.
