We will discuss Look Me in the Eye:  My Life with Asperger’s by John Elder Robison.

"John Robison longed to connect with other people, but by the time he was a teenager, his odd habits had earned him the label "social deviant." No guidance came from his mother, who conversed with light fixtures, or his father, who spent evenings drunk. No wonder he gravitated to machines, which could be counted on. His savant-like ability to visualize electronic circuits landed him a gig with KISS, where he created their legendary fire-breathing guitars. Later, he drifted into a "real" job, as an engineer for a major toy company. But the higher Robison rose, the more he had to pretend to be "normal" and do what he simply couldn't:  communicate. It was not until he was forty that an insightful therapist told him he had the form of autism called Asperger's syndrome.  That understanding transformed the way Robison saw himself—and the world." [From publisher’s description.]

Pre-registration preferred.
