Book Review: The Journal of Best Practices by David Finch


Memoir, non-fiction.  I read this for the non-fiction book club at my local library (August 2014).  Interesting account of a man who learns he has Asperger Syndrome at age 30, and a local author for me, he lives in this area of north of Chicago.  Insightful information about what the journey was/is like for him, and very funny in parts too.  We all thought his wife was very patient and many thought she was a saint.  I found it very helpful with trying to understand how a person with Asperber Syndrome functions and behaves in a world of "neurotypicals."  To me, knowledge breeds understanding, understanding breeds patience, and I think the ideas here will help me with my interactions with others, with extending compassion to all.  I highly recommend this book, it funny, informative, and a real eye-opener.

And so it goes...
