by Jerry Newport

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Jerry Newport, diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome / High Functioning Autism at age 47, wrote this book for those with developmental disorders, but it resonates with people with any disability. His message: Everyone has the power—and the right—to improve the quality of their lives despite their disability. Don’t believe you must be “normal” to be happy; learn to co-exist with “neuro-typicals,” and become the best human being you can be. Jerry candidly reveals his own failures and successes. His heartfelt advice stems from a deep sense of caring for “his people” on the spectrum. If you read only one personal account about autism, this should be it!
