This book is not any sort of professional manual on Asperger's Syndrome nor yet an autobiography. It comprises a revealing series of Essays on Ron's experiences and speculations in the light of the understanding he now has of the Syndrome. He details his relations with the world, with his family, his children, friends, therapists and with his wives. The writing is delivered in a friendly and conversational mode, with a fair mix of humor and irony, - indeed in much the same style with which he presents his popular lectures. In these pages he describes some of the things that the NTs (non-Autistics) of this world simply cannot know about those on the Autism Spectrum. A glance at the Table of Contents will show the wide and stimulating variety of questions that have pressed Ron to seek for answers during much of his 74 years.
About the Author
Ron was born in 1935 in Victoria, Australia. His relatively average scholastic record at school was matched by an undistinguished career in routine clerical jobs as an adult. Very early in life, he became deeply interested in Theatre and the public platform; eventually in his later years, to become classified as a professional Actor and Lecturer, with experience in Stage, Radio, Film and Television. The questions in his mind after three failed marriages, led to his discovery of Aspergers Syndrome. And the diagnosis of same by a Melbourne professional during his mid 60s, proved a turning point in his life, giving him the answers he had been seeking for many years.
