Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):

“Like many others on the autism spectrum, 20-something stand-up comic Michael McCreary has been told by more than a few well-meaning folks that he doesn’t “look” autistic. But, as he’s quick to point out in this memoir, autism “looks” different for just about everyone with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Diagnosed with ASD at age five, McCreary got hit with the performance bug not much later. During a difficult time in junior high, he started journaling, eventually turning his pain e into something empowering—and funny. He scored his first stand-up gig at age 14, and hasn’t looked back.”

My Thoughts & Review

I downloaded this on a whim from Libby, I’d never heard of this book or the author, but I saw it was available to download as part of the Big Library Read.

This was an interesting read and enjoyed the light heartedness, especially as this subject can be very heavy. This wasn’t the laugh out loud kind of read but it did make me smile a few times.

It was remarkable how Michael has managed to pack so much information into such a short book. I actually learnt some interesting things about Autism.

This is definitely a book I suggest everyone give a go.
