That being said, it offers excellent insight into the lives of people who are different, and not just for learning disabilities. It creates empathy and understanding, showing us the value in everyone regardless of whether they fit into our typical molds of "intelligent" or "hard-working".
I feel like someone who never did fit in as a child for other reasons, and it's great to hear from someone who had similar experiences. Being different as a kid has profound effects, and what's complex is that kids don't want to lose themselves in the process of fitting in. That's absolutely right. Good on him for standing up for the weird kids, the different kids! Good on him for accepting himself and writing this book. it's empowering!
It's a good book, but to really get value out of it, I encourage you to skim and skim throughout it, stopping at every chunk of gold. Because like I said, there is a lot of excess, unnecessary content.
