Description

Following his groundbreaking international best seller The Reason I Jump, written when he was only 13, Naoki Higashida offers equally illuminating and practical insights into autism from his current perspective as a young man.

Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight is Naoki Higashida's gently subversive follow-up to his phenomenally popular book The Reason I Jump, which he wrote as a 13-year-old boy with severe autism. Now he shares his thoughts and experiences as a young man, exploring a range of topics from education, identity, family and society to personal growth. He has also written an enigmatic story, 'A Journey', especially for this edition, which is introduced by David Mitchell (cotranslator with Keiko Yoshida). Part memoir, part critique of a world that sees disabilities ahead of disabled people, it opens a window into the mind and world of an autistic, nonverbal young adult, providing remarkable insights into autism in general.
