From the unique perspective of someone living on the autism spectrum comes an exceptional book for those who want to carve out better lives for themselves. Interwoven with real stories of personal triumphs, A Long Walk Down a Winding Road offers clear advice and simple steps for overcoming adversity and improving your life.
Growing up, Sam Farmer contended with challenges many of us face. He was bullied, faced difficulties around self-awareness and social skills, and struggled to build self-esteem. At the age of forty, he received a life-altering diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome. In spite of initial feelings of frustration and confusion, he learned to embrace his newfound “Aspie” profile, recognizing that doing so would ultimately pave the way toward acquiring self-love.
Farmer has written this book in order to share his ideas and insights learned along the winding road of his life. The stories and wisdom shared will inspire and empower everyone to help themselves achieve happier, more productive lives. By emphasizing the importance of a broader acceptance of autism and arguing why it should not be thought of as a disorder, Farmer illustrates how society can greatly benefit from showing an understanding of people who are different.
