    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"
    "I love John Elder Robison Books"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Be Different to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I would. The author is a great narrator. He is a great storyteller.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author is my favorite character because his life experiences are not only informative but also very humorous. I laughed a lot.


    Which character – as performed by John Elder Robison – was your favorite?

    The author is my favorite character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listened to this book in one sitting. It was very interesting and informative.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read both of John Elder Robison's books: Look Me In the Eye and Be Different. I hope that he will write more books.
