    Default Books on Autism and Aspergers

    I have recently read two really great and thoroughly entertaining books that deal with autism and aspergers. I am not personally touched by people with either of these conditions and I didn't specifically set out to "educate" myself, I just wanted a good read.

    Anyway, if you're looking for a good read and an insight into autism and aspergers I can highly recommend:

    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
    Mark Haddon 2003 Red Fox Definitions (Random House)

    and

    Born on a Blue Day
    Daniel Trammet 2007 Hodder & Stroughton



    My heart goes out to all the amazing people who have these conditions and to all the wonderful people who care for them.

    I have a nephew who suffers from Autism and Aspergers. I really want to learn so much more about these conditions.
