Couldn't See His Whole Life...,
This review is from: Parallel Play: Growing Up with Undiagnosed Asperger's (Hardcover)
I was totally disappointed at this book mainly because the author was mainly talking about his younger days. I did understand he was diagnosed with Asperger's(AS) when he became middle-aged. But He was writing about his younger days in most of this book and I didn't see the connections with his diagnosis. I have read several autobiographies written by Aspergians/Auties. And most of them expressed their diagnosis with their conditions well enough. But Tim Page didn't. He did talk about his Asperger's a little bit in the Epilogue. In other words, he seemed to take too long to reach his story on his AS. I would have understood this book more deeply if he had showed me the details of how he got the diagnosis with AS through his entire life.
After all, I felt like I got the runaround because it seems to me this memoir is almost the same as any other ones. That's why the memoir let me down.
