A born storyteller, Robison takes you inside the head of a boy teachers and other adults regarded as "defective". He also provides a fascinating reverse angle on the younger brother he left at the mercy of their nutty parents: the boy who would later change his name to Augusten Burroughs.
Ultimately, this is the story of Robison's journey from his world into ours, and his new life as a husband, father, and successful small business owner. It's a strange, sly, indelible account, sometimes alien, yet always deeply human.

If you could sum up Look Me in the Eye in three words, what would they be?
I listened to this book initially to help myself better understand those with Asperger's Syndrome. Not only did I feel that this book gave me a greater understanding of those with Asperger's, it was also just a wonderful story, that grabbed my attention, and kept me listening. I loved the author's candid discussion of his inner thoughts and feelings growing up in a world that did not understand, or accurately diagnose him.
What other book might you compare Look Me in the Eye to and why?
It had somewhat of a David Sedaris quality to it
