Publisher's Summary

Like many others on the autism spectrum, 20-something stand-up comic Michael McCreary has been told by more than a few well-meaning folks that he doesn’t “look” autistic. But, as he’s quick to point out in this memoir, autism “looks” different for just about everyone with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). 

Diagnosed with ASD at age five, McCreary got hit with the performance bug not much later. During a difficult time in junior high, he started journaling, eventually turning his pain into something empowering - and funny. He scored his first stand-up gig at age 14 and hasn't looked back. 

This unique and hilarious #OwnVoices memoir breaks down what it’s like to live with autism for readers on and off the spectrum. Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic is an invaluable and compelling listen for young readers with ASD looking for voices to relate to as well as for listeners hoping to broaden their understanding of ASD.

Can’t wait to hear more from this talent.

My 16 year-old son also had ASD, and we first heard Mike perform at an Asperger Experts workshop. I couldn’t spend my audible credit fast enough last night and we started listening today on the long drive home from school. Lots of laugh out loud moments so far and the kids are begging to listen to more. Thanks for being a voice (and several characters) for the ASD community!

not complicated to understand

My primary language is spanish, Michael talks very well, very easy to understand (if you know english, obviously) the story, comments, explanations aren't complicated to understand too, it's easy to have empathy with him.
I love your mother, hated Harold and happy to know about your path is quite inspirational to hear
