As some of you may or may not know, April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day.
Autism is a wonderful condition that makes you more powerful than the average human. Whilst symptoms vary and no two autistics are alike, generally speaking being on the spectrum makes you better at winning arguments, less likely to fall for logical fallacies, and it increases your ability to fight the Predator (according to a recent film I saw of which I highly approve).
And, as it just so happens, I wrote a book about autism. You can read about it here:
It's all about how awesome it is to be autistic and it's a self-help guide for how a neuro-typical person might better think like someone on the spectrum.
So if you'd like to show your support for autism on this World Autism Awareness Day, why not give this a crack? Or purchase it for a friend who you think might benefit from being a little more on the spectrum.
Proceeds will go directly towards supporting comedians/writers with autism.
Head to Amazon to grab Why You're Wrong: An Autistic Guide To Modern Living at an absurdly reasonable price and be aware of autism on a level you have never been before.
"Spot on" Luke Heggie (comedian and winner of multiple comedy awards and an ARIA nominee)
"You should definitely publish this" Rachel Hills (feminist writer, producer, movement maker and founder of the The Sex Myth)
"I bought your book and I promise I'll get around to it some day, but hey, you already have my money" Sam Bowring (author, comedian, game designer)
