    For some context this book was written by Jonathon Mitchell an autistic blogger who has written extensively on neuroscience related to the disorder He also writes about various social movements related to autism and autism's general effect on his life He also apparently likes poker and writing fiction and has combined all of these interests into writing this novelFor anyone with an autism spectrum disorder or who deeply understands it this book especially the first half of it hits hard The main character is Drake Dumas a lonely autistic man approaching 50 years of age His autism mild as it is severely hampers his life and several pages are devoted to every humiliation frustration agony and misfortune it brings on him A scene in which Drake attends a social group of other lonely autistic adults only for them to bicker about the tenets of autistic rights movements provides a cruel irony It's at this point you realize Drake Dumas is a shamelessly transparent Mary Sue of Mitchell himself and that everything that happens to Drake is either something that has happened to Mitchell himself or that he wishes it would happen to him Thus I imagine this book must have been simultaneously cathartic and incredibly sad to write The book is by no means a masterpiece Editing errors plus Mitchell's idiosyncratic dialogue and a rather ridiculous plot twist and ending somewhat hamper the experience but the impressive knowledge of poker and neuroscience on display as well as a heartfelt realistic depiction of adult life with autism make up for it

    This is a wonderful book in an unconventional format Like many individuals diagnosed with high functioning autism Drake Dumas has trouble in the workplace and socially He hates being celibate yet cannot attract a girlfriend He is obsessed with poker but continually loses However his participation in a novel experiment changes his luck but provides a whole new set of problems and obstacles This is a wonderful book that brings the reader into the world of someone with high functioning autism The character of Drake Dumas is believable and just leaps off the page Poker fans will especially like the poker scenes in the book I glossed over these because I don’t understand poker yet I enjoyed the book immensely Unfortunately this book is formatted poorly It is too large for a novel double spaced and has no page numbers However it is a good read

    The story started off a bit slow but then it surprised me by going places that I didn't expect I like being pleasantly surprisedUnfortunately I couldn't give this a 5 star because of formatting issues with the Kindle version like double spaces after most periods and sometimes commas some centre justified paragraphs and some line breaks in the middle of paragraphs These issues probably don't appear on the paperback version though

    I randomly stumbled across this book and couldn't believe how good it is Written by a man with a mild autism spectrum disorder this book is many times better than any of the highly promoted self published kindle books I've downloaded in the last couple of years In fact I think it's on par with works like Flowers for Algernon Unfortunately it could have used a proofreader but I ignored those minor issues as the story and character itself were artfully crafted It was so moving that at times I actually cried
