review 1: Relatable on more than one level. The author's only 2 years older than I am so in addition to the psychological relatability there were also many mentions of specific movies/objects from his childhood that were also a part of mine — Talkboy, SNES, Nickelodeon Slime, the Disney renaissance, etc. Maybe that seems a little shallow but it isn't because these things are important. Jesse is hilarious and would be the most dedicated pen-pal ever.Basically for me this book falls under Holden Caulfield's category of books that make you want to call the author up on the phone.
review 2: I am really enjoying this book. The author has a style of writing that appeals to me. I have read some Aspergers accounts that just don't ring true, but Jesse's does. My problem is tha
... moret he sometimes will go off and begin describing something that will be or may have been, and I get really confused, thinking he is being truthful, when it is just imaginings. I would recommend this book though. It's a fun read. less

It did help somewhat in being more empathetic to those afflicted w/ this disability.

I'm still trying to understand Asperger's Syndrome, but I don't think I ever will.

A very bold and honest memoir about what it's like to live with Asperger's.
