New in Paperback! David Finch's Book
The New York Times called it 'compelling,' and People magazine called it a 'hilarious memoir.' If you haven't had a chance to read David Finch's book 'The Journal of Best Practices,' now's your chance, because it's coming out in paperback!
David Finch didn't learn until he was an adult that he has Asperger Syndrome, and it changed his marriage for the better. Here's the book's description:
'Determined to change, David sets out to understand Asperger Syndrome and learn to be a better husband - no easy task for a guy whose inability to express himself rivals his two-year-old daughter's, who thinks his responsibility for laundry extends no further than throwing things in (or at) the hamper, and whose autism spectrum condition makes seeing his wife's point of view a near impossibility. Asperger's is no small adversary, but it does come with a serious obsessive streak. David devotes himself to his marriage with an endearing yet hilarious zeal that involves excessive note-taking, performance reviews, and most of all, the journal of best practices: a collection of hundreds of maxims and hard-won epiphanies that result from self-reflection both comic and painful, from countless discussions with Kristen, and even from a segment of SportsCenter. They include 'don't change the station when she's singing along' to 'apologies don't count when you shout them' to 'be her friend first and always.' Guided by the journal of best practices, David transforms himself over the course of two years from the world's most trying husband to the husband who tries the hardest, the husband he'd always meant to be.'
