" This book was both funny and educational. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have a better understanding of autism but also doesn't want to read a super serious book about it. " said.

" As a mom of a child with autism and as a teacher, I was curious to read this young man’s take. It’s a light, enjoyable and potentially insightful book. The epilogue gutted me though. " said.

" Great book! Especially for neurotypical and allistic loved ones of autistic people. " said.

" nonfiction (memoir of 22 y.o. comedian on the aspie end of the spectrum)Funny, enjoyable, short. A positive perspective that I hope will build understanding and empathy, as well as make people laugh. " said.

" Fun, insightful look at autism spectrum disorder thru the eyes of one young man. As a mom with a kiddo on the spectrum, this was validating and enlightening. Thanks for the laughs and the encouragement. " said.

" Another angle to the aspie life - someone who isn’t into math, computers, and other techie stuff. But comedy, storytelling, and the arts.I’d slot this title under YA because so much of the book is about the young author’s childhood and life as a teen. It would resonate well wth that younger audience. A fun reflective read for astuces. " said.

" Thank you Michael for giving a lighthearted account of growing up autistic. Yes, there are issues and challenges but then again everybody has them. We need more books like yours and I look forward to your further adventures in "neurotypical land". Your point of view is a breath of fresh air and I see your contributions/observations as a new color in the crayon box of life that makes "neurotypical land" less boring . " said.

"This is McCreary's story about his life on the spectrum (ASPIES). He also tells some about his brother who is also on the spectrum, but lower functioning. McCreary tells his story with candor, using his comedic talent.

One of the things that I found most interesting was his brief discussion about person first language (person with autism) vs diagnosis first (autistic person). In his mindset, it means the same and it doesn't matter which you use (with him), but I have met people who insist on using person first language, only, so if you are meeting someone for the first time, ask them or their family which they prefer.

It is important to remember, if you've met one person with autism, you've met one person with autism.
