John Elder Robison
Publisher:Transworld Publishers (Division of Random House Australia)
The author of Look Me In The Eye returns, with endearing stories and actionable advice that will help Aspergians, and even ordinary geeks, embrace being different and work on the things that hold them back in life. With his usual honesty, dry wit, and unapologetic eccentricity, John Robison argues that Asperger's is about difference, not just disability. He offers stories from his own life and the lives of other Aspergians to give the reader a window into the Aspergian mind. Equally important, he offers practical advice - to Aspergians, their parents, and educators - on how Aspergians can improve the weak communication and social skills that keep them from taking full advantage of, or even recognising, their often remarkable gifts.
