I recently finished reading a very sweet novel in which the main character who, although undiagnosed, demonstrates several symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome. He is a brilliant geneticist and professor at a prestigious university in Australia. At the beginning of the book, he is asked by his friend and colleague to give a presentation on the topic of Asperger’s syndrome. Of course, as a scientist, he conducts thorough research and learns as much as he can about the genetics of the syndrome before giving the presentation. While reading this section of the book, I came across some quotes that I wanted to share with you.
