Look Me in the Eye (Book #119)

Look Me in the Eye (John Elder Robison, 2007) is a memoir of living with Asperger's, and Asperger's that went undiagnosed for 40 years because Robison was born in the late 50's, long before Asperger's was on the radar for doctors, parents, and teachers.

On balance, it's an inspiring story. Despite the double burden of Asperger's and a high dysfunctional family (Robison is the elder brother of Augusten Burroughs, author of Running With Scisssors), he built a successful life for himself--satisfying career, family, and so on.
