Publisher Review

Wired Differently is an important, timely, charmingly written, and exceptionally warm-hearted book that teaches young adults to value and appreciate the aptitudes and eccentricities of their own brains, while facing the challenges of being different. A+. -- Steve Silberman, author, NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity I would like everyone I have ever met, and ever will meet, to read this book. Joe really explores not only what it's like to be neurodivergent, but also how much we can achieve if we are just allowed to be our genuine selves. Thanks Joe for showing those of us that have felt like a square peg in a round hole, that our square holes are out there waiting for us and that we are in truly esteemed company. -- Angela Barnes, Comedian
