Summary
Author Henry Kong's More Self than Self: At Autism's Edge will take you on a captivating exploration of the autistic mind as Dr. Kong shares the latest discoveries in genetics and neuroscience. As a child, Kong was an awkward Asian American bookworm with oversized glasses and an overbearing father. Made to feel like an outsider, Kong was bullied by his classmates and endured degrading nicknames. Kong's stories tell of his childhood gift for memorization and the challenge that it creates later in life, and of his struggle to grasp and apply concepts to real-life situations. Through it all, Kong manages to finish medical school, educate himself about Asperger syndrome, write books, and open a private practice. In a conversational style, Dr Kong intersperses anecdotes with passages that cover both basic science and also delve into the cutting-edge research that has helped solve some of the mysteries behind autism. Not only will More Self than Self provide a comprehensive look into the differences between the autistic and neurotypical brain; it will also inspire anyone who has ever felt isolated and unaccepted to believe that they too can make their dreams come true
