When I picked up this book, I didn't put it down until I had finished it about five hours later, at 4.23am. Having AS myself, I like detail and this book highlights that aspect of the condition. But it is unfortunate that it perpetuates the myth that all people with AS excel at maths.
I get sick of being asked if I can re-enact the feats of Dustin Hoffman's character in Rain Man, and it would be good to discover a book that shows that people with AS are all unique.
This is an excellent read and will give an insight about AS to teachers and other professionals, but it would have been better if Christopher had excelled at something other than maths - or maybe nothing at all.
