By John Elder Robison
Ultimately, this is the story of Robison’s journey from his world into ours, and his new life as a husband, father, and successful small business owner—repairing his beloved high-end automobiles. It’s a strange, sly, indelible account—sometimes alien, yet always deeply human.
As I grew older, I taught myself to act normal. I could do it so well that a normal person would believe it for an entire afternoon or even longer; But if I hear something that I have shown different emotions than what people expect from me; All role playing is lost. In an instant, in the eyes of others, I become the antisocial person they saw in me forty years ago.
John Elder Robison writes about the world of Asperger’s and the characteristics of his life in the book “Look Me in the eyes”.
He tried his best to remember his thoughts and emotions about people, places and events correctly and express them in the best possible way.
In this book, he tries to depict the emotions and feelings he experiences, his decisions and the process of his life for others and bring them into the world of autism.
All proceeds from the sale of this book will be used to educate children with autism.
