A fantastic book. Read it in one go - literally couldn't put it down, and this is a first for me. He gets into this boy's head in a remarkable way, and somehow manages to keep it light-hearted even though it's a painful story. Loved it.

Anyone else think, "I'm autistic."?

Well, having a few simple obsessions and a single track mind, and the inability to multitask, and a fascination for various activities my wife thinks odd, I can't see any reason to doubt I'm somewhere on the spectrum.

But aren't all men?

Make that "all people".

I may have mentioned this before, but there's a fantastic book out there called "Everybody's Normal Till You Get to Know Them". I say we're all somewhere along the spectrum.

This book also holds many of the words and phrases we like to... 'discuss' here...maths comes to mind.
