Philip Wylie sought a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome at the age of 51 after reading an article about autism in an accountancy magazine and having a "Eureka" moment! He previously worked as Finance Director and Company Secretary of a British offshore bank, before relocating to Thailand where he began personal study of psychology and complementary healing practices on his path to self-realisation. Before and since receiving his diagnosis he has researched autism extensively and undertaken a survey into late diagnosis with Autonomy Autism Services and writing projects for the NAS, UK.
"In this 1942 volume, Wylie, one of the founders of The New Yorker, attacks everything imaginable, from politics to religion to mothers. He could give H.L Mencken a run for his money as the most opinionated person of the 20th century. Considering the world hasn't improved much in the last 50 years, much of what he says has great relevance today." -- Library Journal
