  • Hard to put down

    It’s fascinating, heartbreaking, and inspiring to learn firsthand from a 13-year-old Japanese boy with severe autism. He describes his perceptions and reactions, and enlightens us about what the disorder means for him.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The reason I jump

    I know have a greater understanding of the prison people with autism must deal with every second of their lives. I realize the actions and behaviors that marcel exhibited throughout his years and I hope that I will be more empathic, patient and caring as a parent who has a son with autism.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Well worth reading for insights into the autistic mind. Quite enjoyed the first few chapters, then I began to question how Naoki could make comparisons to the way a non-autistic person experiences the world. Was this book a collaboration with his therapist or his mother? Still, a very interesting narration. I would recommend it to anyone working with and caring for a person with autism.

  • Beautiful, informative and moving.

    Few books have made an impression on me as this one has. The insight into the mind of this autistic person is so shockingly normal in view that I couldn't put it down. Part child of wonder and feeling, part adult of conviction, his is a story of duality between mind and body, between imposed norms and reality. A beautiful, informing and moving read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very eye opening

    This young man opened my eyes to autism in ways I never imagined. My grandson is autistic and I am thankful to understand him better.

    Thanks for your feedback!
