I read his book, "Born on a Blue Day" first and found the explanation of how it feels to have a condition like his fascinating and wanted to read his second book. I have enjoyed both.
On top of this it is, compared to many author's almost illiterate styles, extremely well written. I should add that it is also a work that one can browse in or delve into from time to time. I recommend that you check the various excerpts from reviews that you will find on the back cover.
