The author has Asperger’s syndrome and the book describes his life, challenges, talents and successes.

The book is excellently written, but unfortunately I could only read about half of it; I found it too boring.

Stephen is gifted and, among other things, has a degree in music. He is married to a Chinese musician, who tells us that Stephen can hear much higher pitches than she can and turns the volume of the TV down so low that she almost can’t hear it. In other words, he is extremely sensitive. He has learnt some Chinese from her and her friends and pronounces the Chinese language “with all its tones” very well. He sometimes hides clocks under cushions because he can’t stand their ticking noise.

If you yourself have Asperger’s or are interested in the condition, the book may well appeal to you; I just found it too dry to capture my attention. ( )

This expanded second edition, which features a foreward by Dr. Temple Grandin, includes a new chapter entitled Getting Ready for College. New information on common sensory reactions has been added in an easy to read chart format. Finally, there's a new chapter on Shore's recent public involvement with autism spectrum related issues, including speaking at conferences and advocating for services for those on the spectrum. ( )
