This is a great little book. It is rather short and sweet. One of my closest friends is getting ready to foster three precious sisters and already has three boys of her own, and I couldn't wait to share this with her because there are so many great ideas for families and child raising. My other closest friend has five children and she learned a lot too. I think these gals have a great message and a great delivery. This will not be a book for everyone.
I should have written this book, but David Finch beat me to it!
The journey he took me on in this book was akin to that which Ebenezer Scrooge embarked on with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come in "A Christmas Carol": I relived my early life, my current relationship, and saw the future -- MY future, if I continue on my current trajectory.
What I gained from this book is a better understanding of myself through the perspectives of both someone very much like me, and also his loved ones. Not everyone has access to that kind of insight. And you can't beat the price.
Even if you just want to learn more about a large subset of the population whose brains are wired differently than most -- and have fun doing it -- I can't recommend this book highly enough. But if you are an 'eccentric', 'outcast', or 'misfit' like me, or someone you love just struggles with connecting with others or getting through their day without having a meltdown, this may be the book that changes your life. After a lifetime of not making sense to even myself (much less others), it has changed mine for the better.
