While “Remembering The Way” starts out ordinary enough, it unfolds with unexpected situations, and we navigate the challenges through the eyes of someone who is not initially identifiable as “Differently Abled” (as the author puts it).
The central character Larry has learned not just how to cope with Asperger’s, he has successfully leveraged differences in his thought process to drive a successful technical career, with industry respect for his life’s work.
We are guided through the unfolding story while exploring Larry’s routines, coping tools, intrapersonal relationships, and thought processes from a rarely expressed perspective in this book. We are guided through dealing with everything from functional agoraphobia to face blindness (prosopagnosia) along the way.
Prior to “Remembering The Way”, the only relatable, first person description of face blindness I had ever heard was from the acclaimed neurologist Oliver Sacks, who despite his own prosopagnosia, gained widespread acceptance in the scientific community.
This book hooks you in with increasingly detailed descriptions in a way that is relatable and endearing.
Highly recommended reading.
The writing is carefully researched, and draws from many different aspects of the author's life, knowledge, and experience.
