"For anyone who has difficulty fitting in, this book is fantastic." --Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures "In a love poem to his wife, Pedro Salinas, the Spanish poet, wrote, 'Glory to the differences / between you and me.' John Robison teaches us to celebrate differences like Salinas did, but also offers clear insight and valuable advice on how to cope with the challenges that being different can create. This book transcends the specific case of Asperger's syndrome and is a lesson in humanity and the human condition." --Alvaro Pascual-Leone, M.D., Ph.D., Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center "Anyone with Asperger's, if not everyone else, will derive knowledge and pleasure from the wonderful stories told in John Elder Robison's newest book, Be Different. Clearly, John is one of our community's leading voices." --Michael John Carley, author of Asperger's from the Inside Out and executive director of GRASP and ASTEP "Be Different is a fascinating and unique guide for young people who may be struggling with autism and feel 'out of sync' with the world around them. John shares personal insights about growing up, feeling apart from his peers, and learning to modify his socializing skills and harness his gifts to discover his path to a successful life." --Mark Roithmayr, president of Autism Speaks "Robison offers down-to-earth life advice for his "Aspie" peers and their friends, families, and teachers...recommended reading for anyone seeking to understand Aspergian children and adults." --Kirkus "Provides incredibly helpful advice to families learning to live with these challenges. Robison's clear writing provides substantial insight into the mind of someone whose disorder makes clarity very, very difficult...a valuable read."â ¬ --Booklist
