    John Robison argues that Asperger's is about difference, not disability. In this book he offers stories from his own life and from the lives of other Aspergians to give the reader a window into the Aspergian mind. Equally important, he offers practical advice - to Aspergians, their parents, and educators - on how Asperians can improve the weak communication and social skills that keep them from taking full advantage of, or even recognizing, their often remarkable gifts.

    SHEILA says: "You have to BE an Aspie to see the full value"
    "Always insightful."

    Story
    What did you love best about Be Different?

    Be Different is an honest account of John Elder Robison's view of learning he's an aspie and how he managed to excel in a world before the diagnosis was conceivable. He provides hints and guides to other aspies which has been a blessing for me as a mother of an aspie.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part of this audio book is the honest account of his success.


    Any additional comments?

    God Bless you, John Elder Robison for bringing asperger's to light and provide insight on how to "treat" these individuals.
