Morning Edition April 3rd: "Be Different: My Adventures with Asperger's...." by John Robison
April is National Autism Awareness Month and this very special book, written by a man with Asperger's Syndrome - a form of Autism - will make you understand much more about the complexities and challenges faced by those with Autism or Asperger's, and the people who come into contact with them every day. "Be Different: My Adventures with Asperger's and My Advice for Fellow Aspergian's, Misfits, Families and Teachers", was written by John Elder Robison. Not at all a dark or disturbing book, this is the story of a man who not only learned to live with an undiagnosed condition for forty years, but once he learned about having Asperger's, he has shared the lessons he has learned with others.
