If you’ve read any of the books written by John Elder Robison or his brother Augusten Burroughs, you’ll want to read Switched On as well. The family saga is remarkable; this is the latest chapter and fascinating.
If your life has changed due to brain injury or mental illness and you follow news about new treatment modalities, you’ll want to read Switched On.
If you think your life is stuck and you can’t imagine becoming seriously different after age 50, read Switched On. You may find reason to hope.
All in all, well worth the time it takes to read. If you haven’t read any of the earlier books yet, you can read Switched On by itself; you may want to go back later and catch up on the backstory.
Also by John Elder Robison: Look me in the Eye.
