A truly mind-boggling account of autism from the inside by an exceptional woman with Asperger syndrome, who was able to overcome her autistic features to a large extent, and can tell about her memories of what her life was like as a child and young woman. It confirms the idea that people with autism really do see the world differently. I learned a lot from this book about the very able person with autism who can become well adjusted through huge effort and intelligence. Gunilla longed to be a ‘real person’ and, remarkably, she succeeded. She has become an expert on autism and Asperger syndrome, and still remains somewhat of an outsider.
