Understand another world,
This review is from: Born on a Blue Day: A Memoir of Aspergers and an Extraordinary Mind (Hardcover)
Very insightful book, always interesting to understand how someone quite different sees the world. Also makes you realise that any differences are not so big after all.
The prose is a little dry - in some places a bit abrupt - but I think that adds to the feeling that the book has not been too dressed up or crafted - it feels like a genuine reflection of Daniel's thoughts/ experiences. Don't want that to sound too harsh though - in other places there is rich detail and very descriptive explanations of how numbers, language etc form in his mind - again, leaves you feeling closer to his world.
Overall a good read.
