  "Great book! Author is funny and informative about his life." by edandtee (see profile) 07/18/08

This was a great book that I recommend to anyone who would liek a little insight into ASpergers. We all probably know someone who John reminds us of in some way. He writes in a very humorous way and tells very good stories of his life on the road making smoking guitars for KISS and working for Milton Bradley and his marriage and struggles.
A must read!

  "Not what I expected" by nmjm4me (see profile) 09/20/10

I expected more of an insight into how his mind worked. There were a few chapters on that towards the end that were interesting. However most of the book skipped around quite a bit or concentrated on the stuff he did for KISS. The book needed an editor to organize it. Most of our book club either couldn't finish the book or did not enjoy it. One member loved it though, so who knows?

  "Look Me in the Eye; my life with aspergers" by Rotter6 (see profile) 11/15/10

Great book. Working with the learning disabled and disabled it really gave us a perspective we usually don't get!

  "Good for a laugh" by lrs4564 (see profile) 01/28/11

This book gives us insight into the mind of someone with Asperger's even before he knows he has Asperger's. The author gives us great details of what went on in his mind growing up feeling "different" but never know why. You'll laugh out loud at his pranks and even be a little shocked at some of them! Overall, enjoyed this book. His brothers book Running With Scissors also is a good read.

Story about the life of someone with aspergers. The trials and tribulations through a lifetime of challenges. Our club learned a lot about this disease and it provides insight into people lives with aspergers.

  "Interesting read" by Staciele (see profile) 09/28/13

You will certainly look at people with disabilities differently.

Such a courageous and insightful memoir. Written with care and detail, the author’s story comes to life to help the reader broaden understanding of Aspergers and how it affects the lives bound by this “way of being.” #opencanonbookclub
