Marc Fleisher autobiography

Club member Marc Fleisher has just had his autobiography published. It is entitled “Making Sense of the Unfeasible – My Life Journey with Asperger Syndrome”, and those who have read it say it is a fascinating and very moving story.

The book is published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers, ISBN 1-84310-16513. It is available at Ottakers in High Wycombe or from Amazon.

Here is a synopsis:

“Before he received his diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome in the 1970′s, Marc Fleisher was considered mentally retarded; yet he went on to gain a degree and then a post graduate qualification in Maths. In this engaging story, Marc relates how he learnt to get the most out of life, with the support of his family and services for people with autism, despite family tragedy and personal difficulties. He shares, with humour and candour, a multitude of practical tips for people with AS, and those around them, rounding off his story with appendices on astronomy, parallel universes, and the mathematics of unfeasibly large numbers”.

Costing just £12.95, it is a highly recommended read.
