Additional Description


The author is an adolescent with Asperger's, which gives him the special insight about the subject, but he adds to this a sense of humor and a lilting writing style which makes the book compelling and particularly relevant for AS teens. He examines topics such as fixations and fascinations, diets, sleep, problems with socializing at school, dating, homework, dealing with bullies, moral dilemmas, and, even, an explanation of idioms that are particularly perplexing for those with Asperger's syndrome (e.g. "feeling under the weather?"; "bark is worse than his bite").
