This autobiography was a very pleasant surprise Bought on a whim on kindle for me to learn of one s perceptions and experiences who is diagnosed with this condition It details the author s early years including his difficulties socialising and the uniue way he viewed the world then and now Robison elaborates on his dysfunctional family life which we know in detail already from Augustin Burrough s compelling autobiography Running with scissors Robison is Burroughs elder brother Unlike Burroughs Robison escaped the clutches of his mother s descent into psychosis and his father s violence and alcoholism Robison was forced to grow up suddenly as he left school and home at the age of 16 years He became an audio engineer initially for bands such as Fat and then Pink Floyd and subseuently special effects designer for bands such as Kiss He describes in razor sharp detail the life of being on the road with musicians and the surreal lifestyle and being accepted as being another creative misfit Financial difficulties forced him out of this strange frenetic lifestyle into mundane jobs as a engineer all of this attained without the benefit of conventional schooling He earned accolades for his creativity designing computer games and the like but as he became successful and promotions ensued he was steered into administrative roles which relied on interpersonal skills which he was sadly lacking Eventually after a broken marriage and the birth of his son he finally achieved success through forming his own prestige vehicles car repair serviceWhat I liked about this book was the observations he makes about his own behavioural responses to situations such as detailing his reactions to being told that someone was killed in an accident Unlike neuro typical people who have learnt regular social conventions from a young age and respond to such announcements with expressions of sorrow Robison reacts with inappropriate expressions of relief such as smiling that he wasn t the one killed It is reasonable but sad that normal people would misunderstand these expressions and would accuse Robison of being weird or uncaring Sadly Robison suffers blows to his self esteem as a result of the numerous comments and criticisms he endures It shows remarkable resilience of character that Robison survives as well as he doesRobison does give examples of positive life events and supportive people who were affirming of his uniueness The learning when Robison is in his forties that he has a condition that is named with a cluster of features that are relatively consistent across people with Autism Spectrum Disorder which Asperger s syndrome is now considered to be the milder form ofThe real highlights for me of this book include the breathtaking detail of his describing what it is like to be the lighting engineer when you have an enormous fired up crowd in an auditorium and you literally have the heart and soul and fate of this heaving organism his words in your hand This for me was true literature so beautifully described I was there with Robison standing at that lighting console my heart in mouth praying that his lighting designs would work Other passages such as when he describes standing with his son at a railway line awaiting the ascent of a diesel engine He does not overdo the descriptions the passages are action based but the movement and noise is well conveyed I wonder if possessing an Aspie s attention to detail Robison is able to notice details the normal person dismisses unconsciously and hence has difficulty recallingI struggle to detail any aspect of this book that I did not like The prose was well constructed without lengthy passages of detail that could have been difficult to wade through He effectively uses internal dialogue to convey the uncertainty and negative self talk that we all use to a lesser or greater extent but is especially poignant in Robison s case Possibly my enjoyment of this book was enhanced by having read his brother s earlier book Running with scissors I still feel however that I would be singing this book s praises even so I will be recommending this book to anyone who has an interest in the human condition
