Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Aspergers by John Elder Robinson

Sarina NayakLook Me in the Eye is an autobiography that follows John Robinson through his life with undiagnosed Aspergers. Robinson always wanted to connect with children his age, but despite his efforts, he could not fit in with them. He grew up at a time when a diagnosis of Aspergers did not exist. He was 40 when he learned he had Aspergers. We follow Robinson through his childhood in a dysfunctional family and a struggle to fit in. We follow him later in life, through his high school years and his adulthood, working fascinating jobs. This book gives us insight into the life of someone with Aspergers while also entertaining us with stories from John Robinson’s life. This would be a great read for anyone who wants to learn how Aspergers affects social interactions and the lives of those with Aspergers. It shows us how for many people, Asperger’s is not their disability, but their superpower. This book may not be appropriate for ages under 13 due to language.
