    Embracing the Wide Sky is a unique and brilliantly imaginative portrait of how we think, learn, remember and create, brimming with personal insights and anecdotes, and explanations of the most up-to-date, mind-bending discoveries from fields ranging from neuroscience to psychology and linguistics. This is a profound and provocative book that will transform our understanding and respect for every kind of mind.

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Robert says: "Endearing. Pathos, humor, reality, and insight."
    "Great Beginning Mystery Novel."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time again? Why?

    I would like to hear this book again, not for the mystery, but to pick up on parts of the book to hear how autistic author phrases his viewpoint. As a parent to an autistic child, ascertaining different high functioning autistic thought processes helps me to conjur ideas to communicate with my own child.
