I read this autobiography in a couple of days partly because it was a well-written easy read (unusual style though) but partly because I knew I would be meeting Chris the following weekend. It was one of the few books that has made me cry, not because of some artificial sentimental story but because of Chris's determination to succeed in his chosen interests, even if it brought heartache and alienation. I hope I understand Aspergers a little better having had Chris explaining how is is to live with it. It makes sense that he can interact with animals better than people. He is a fascination man and I hope he will carry on with his biography, as this one finishes when he is still a young man. I am delighted with my signed copy!
