Stephen's words softened my heart. They made me proud to be a fellow aspie. I am certain everyone who reads Stephen's book will come away inspired by his life's story, honoured by his decision to share so much of who he is, and touched by his honesty and courage. More importantly I am quite certain his readers will forever more look upon people with any difference, particularly those on the light end of autism or Asperger syndrome, as fine and nobly interesting people who have so very much to offer this society we all share. Author: Liane Holliday Willey.
