Kim Peek is such a gift to us all. His inspiration to lift and make the most of yourself is fantastic. I not only read the book, I have met him and his father. What a great service they provide to the world. If you want to feel good about being different this is the book for you. He says things that others are afraid to say or are embarrassed to admit. He is candid and forthright. We could all learn from him. I recommend reading this book for a book group. It is uplifting and energizing.
I just finished my copy of The Real Rainman, which happens to be a gift from Fran and Kim Peek, the authors. One of Kim's diagnoses is Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum (ACC), which my toddler also has been diagnosed with. I was inspired by reading about all of Kim's abilities and his thoughts. I feel that ANYONE will feel uplifted instantly after reading this book.
