Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's


Show Synopsis

From the time he was three or four years old, John Elder Robison realised that he was different from other people. He was unable to make eye contact or connect with other children, and by the time he was a teenager his odd habits - an inclination to blurt out non-sequiturs, obsessively dismantle radios, or dig five-foot holes (and stick his younger brother in them) - had earned him the label 'social deviant'.

Excellent read!

This book is excellent for anyone who has a friend, friend's family member, their own family member, or themselves with Asperger's! It gives a lot of hope for a successful life! I had read the book on my NOOK because my sister is raising a grandson with Asperger's. I bought a copy of the book for her, as well as for a friend, whose grandson also has it. They are both SUPER grateful to get a copy of it. Thanks for sending the copies as quickly as you did!

From the inside

I was very interested, in this book, because I have a 12 year old grandson who has Aspergers. It gave me a better view of how he felt from the inside. It has been read by his mother and is now being read by an aunt who has an autistic daughter.

I have 2 children with autism, my oldest having Asperger's. As soon as I saw the front cover of the book the title struck me; I knew it was a biography about someone with autism. John Robison shows us what it feels like to grow up with Asperger's, how different he felt, and not knowing why. I really enjoyed the stories he told about the pranks he pulled, and sometimes how such complicated things often are really just so simple if you think about it. I enjoyed this book very much.

inside Asperger's

After reading several "technical" books on this subject, this was a breath of fresh air. A true "inside" look at Asperber's. Would recommend this book to anyone trying to understand the thought processes of a child or adult with Asperger's. A great read!
