Summary
  • "The author of the bestselling phenomenon The Reason I Jump returns with a unique memoir about life as a young adult with severe autism. With an introduction by David Mitchell, who translated this book with his wife, KA Yoshida, this extraordinary new work explores education, identity, family, society, and personal growth, opening a window into the mind of its nonverbal author and providing remarkable insights into autism in general"--
  • "Naoki Higashida wrote The Reason I Jump as a 13-year-old boy. Now, he shares his thoughts and experiences as a 24-year old young man with severe autism.

Healso allows readers to experience profound moments we take for granted, like the thought-steps necessary for him to register that it's raining outside.

It is a self-portrait-in-progress of a young man who happens to have autism, and who wants to help us understand it better"--
