To let John Robison Look Me in the Eye.
(Sing along with me now!)
He's really quite a guy!
John is amazing. He talked for almost 45 minutes, digressing to tell stories along the way, and never once lost his train of thought or stumbled. He has an excellent command of the English language and is very entertaining.
I don't think the audience was prepared for John. There were so many people there with Aspergers or Autism in their families. I think he gave them a lot of hope, especially when he talked about the TMS study at Harvard and his successes in regaining some of his emotional intelligence.
I won't give away too much because everyone needs to hear him speak and listen to his message. He is dynamic and very interesting.
It was a great way to spend a Saturday night and I now have 3 signed copies of his book - the hardcover I won in a contest when it first came out, the hardcover I bought to lend out to friends and the paperback I bought Saturday.
I will continue to lend out the books because everyone who reads them is enlightened and impressed.
Thanks John for a wonderful experience!
