About the Author

David Finch grew up on a farm in northern Illinois and attended the University of Miami, where he studied Music Engineering Technology. In 2008 he was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. His essay, "Somewhere Inside, a Path to Empathy" appeared in The New York Times and became the basis for this book. David lives in northern Illinois with his wife Kristen and two children and is still a total nerd.

Reviews

"In this funny, endearing, lesson-packed memoir, Finch shows what a couple can accomplish with acceptance, forbearance, determination and love." -- More Magazine "In relating his story, Finch is compellingly honest, a trait that works well with his self-deprecating humor. [His] ability to put his experiences on paper will no doubt help more people--and families--understand [Asperger's disorder]. " --Publishers Weekly "As a science writer who's written about the psychology of love and affection, I was struck by the clarity and honesty that illuminate this work. Finch provides a clear and unflinching look at the ways that this disorder leaves a person struggling to navigate through the complexities of our "neurotypical" social world. But he tells his story with humor, affection for others, and without self-pity. In his deep desire to be a good husband, a better father, a decent human being who connects with and care for others, Finch tells a universal tale, a fulfilling and even inspiring story of the difference that love - genuinely giving love - can make in our daily lives." --Deborah Blum, author of The Poisoner's Handbook
