Every now and then you maybe lucky to come across a work such as this. Its a very honest, sometimes painfully honest account of one Man's struggle to live in a world that is almost to alien to bear. The insights in the journey of overcoming Asperger's Syndrome are sometimes sublime into the spirtual to the very ordinary are an inspiration. This is a must read! Wether your interest is professional or just understanding the human condition. You really do feel that you are walking with him, every step of the way.

This book has remarkable insight ! 25 Mar. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
From a literary point of view, this is by far your best book yet. But from a subject matter point of view, it is just outstanding. It is written well enough that, as I read each of the episodes you relate, I agonized with you as you strove to deal with each. The book is a remarkable insight into the thoughts and personality, even the mind, of someone who looks at the world through a different set of lenses than most of us do.
Cumulatively, the episodes and their outcomes gradually made me realize that something was missing in how you regarded the personnel in each event and how you assessed "blame" for the contretemps that often resulted. It eventually dawned on me that there was very little, if any, empathy for the views and feelings of others in the way you approached these situations. It seemed difficult for you to understand how the other guy or gal might feel about a particular situation. When I mentioned this to other professionals, they told me that the lack of empathy is a major symptom of Asperger's.
However, the overriding feeling I experienced while reading your book was admiration. Time after time, I said to myself, "Man, that took a lot of guts to write that!" Although perhaps therapeutic, writing the book also must have been quite painful. But beyond whatever therapeutic value writing it had for you, think of how invaluable the insight you provide into what it is like to live with Asperger's and ultimately overcome it will be to others with the condition, to family and care-givers, and to medical and psychological professionals working to treat those with Asperger's. You have done a great service, undoubtedly at no small cost to yourself, to all who are involved in any way with this condition and they should be grateful.
Congratulations on a job very well done!

Climb Every Mountain 23 April 2005
By BeatleBangs1964 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a rare gem and a recently discovered treasure. In addition to being well written, one can identify with much of what the author has chosen to share. It provides a much needed window with parted curtains into autism/Asperger's (a/A) perceptions and interpretations.

It has been said and evidence appears to support the finding that people on the a/A spectrum learn empathy cognitively as opposed to intuitively. Seeing the view from another person's perspective is challenging for most people, but for those on the a/A spectrum it is all the more so.

This book is one that commands respect; being able to disclose the level of information that is found in this book is nothing short of courageous. It is the voice of hope for those with any form of autism; for professionals and for those personally involved with people on the a/A spectrum. This is a book for everybody! Being able to share these insights and observations made me think of the song "Climb Every Mountain" from "The Sound of Music."

Hats off to this book!

Very insightful! 31 Oct. 2014
By Carol M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very insightful into how the asperger's mind looks at life and friendships. They have such great analytical minds and they have tremendous loyalty to those who demonstrate kindness and patience.
