Journal Entry 2 by tabby-cat-owner at Phoenix, Arizona USA on Saturday, April 25, 2015

8 out of 10

The author writes about his life in a very dysfunctional family. He was not diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome until he was forty but his behavior does seem to concur with a diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome. Although he dropped out of high school, the author was a genius in mechanical things and was blessed to have a series of interesting jobs. It is interesting to note that as the author became more social, the level of his "genius" skill declines. (The author makes this observation himself.) At times, I thought the author was not a compassionate or nice person, but he has worked with educators and groups with the purpose of helping people to understand and have compassion for people who are different in many ways.

I enjoyed reading this story, and it's place in history when Aspergers was a little known diagnosis. Now it seems flavour of the month - quite a change in 10 years. The story flowed very well, however I lost interest in the last couple of chapters which was his philosophical pondering about his wife and choices he made.

Thanks for sending this book my way.
