Hi,
I loved your review of Takedown. I am a Stargate fan and a Lou Diamond fan who found your link via Twitter. I will definitely check back for more. Good luck with the books too.

Heya!

Have you read The Reason I Jump yet (the insights of a Japanese boy with autism)? I just picked it up and it’s amazing!

@Das Jeff bought it on our Kindle but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. I saw the man who did the translation to English I believe on Jon Stewart and it sounded like a fascinating book. I always love insights into what may possibly be going on in Patrick’s head yet he cannot express.

I encourage you to read it. It is insightful, but also quite beautiful in the way he sees things. And for me, a bit scary. I have only read a few bits, but I relate to so much of it myself – my oneness with nature, my inclination to wear the same thing every day, and my tendency to watch the same thing over and over (like a tv show or type of tv show) all now make total sense to me. Though I don’t consider myself autistic this book has helped me to understand some of the things I’ve considered to be my personal eccentricities, and in doing so it has actually made me feel quite normal. I can’t wait to read the entire thing!
