Switched On: A Memoir of Brain Change and Emotional Awakening by John Elder Robison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This author amazed me by what he has accomplished in his life having Asperger’s disease and autism.
He’s done more than most of us. I was fascinated with his mind and his eagerness to learn and improve his mental and emotional well being. This is an account of his experience with early studies of increasing the abilities in autistic brains with electrical stimulation. He has written other books about his life with autism. I found I was compelled to read what happened to him as he participated in the study. His writing is so real, raw, and vulnerable. I applaud his efforts and am very glad I finished his book. Reading it encouraged me in my own search for improving my life, my health, and my mind.
I highly recommend reading Switched On. I was given a copy by Net Galley for my honest review.
