Publisher's Summary

Now you can go where no one has been before: deep inside a mind with high-functioning autism. In his roller coaster of a life, Dylan Volk (aka Dielawn) has lived all over the country, tried to fit in with many different crowds, and been in jail a few times. 

Now he has written a tell-all book to give you all the juicy details. Don't listen to this book before you go to sleep - you may be up all night!

Literally changed my life, thank you Dylan!

To Dylan,

Wherever you are man I hope you’re doing good. Your book’s changed my life, and I mean that. I sincerely hope we can meet up some day.

To readers,

Absolutely eye opening and engaging. Don’t know how many times I about died laughing. Dylan’s narration of the book is priceless. If you want to know more about people on the spectrum or think you might be on it yourself, you absolutely MUST GET THIS BOOK!

Pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book.

He has a great narrative voice and this would have been a good memoir even if he wasn’t on the spectrum, just based on the life events he shares. But it was an enlightening point of view of the honest black and white thinking differences between neurotypical people compared to someone on the spectrum. I would definitely recommend this audiobook.

So relatable! Love it!

I have high-functioning autism so I loooooooved this book! I found myself agreeing aloud at parts (especially about employment woes) and laughing at his jokes (even if they weren't specifically supposed to be jokes, haha). Great memoir! 👍

Disappointing

Started off well, but became a bit narcissistic and eventually lost its way before fizzling out.

Entertaining and engaging

This is an entertaining and engaging story. i thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. Having the author read the book helped with understanding the story and events. As a disability support worker, this book helped me learn a bit about the way some of the people I supoort might view the world. I'm not saying all people with autism are the same but it gave my neurotypical mind an opportunity to consider the autistic perspective.
