Sus respuestas directas y claras, sirven de entrada a un mundo incomprensible para la mayoria de nosotros y consigue conmover. Es un canto a la vida. Ademas, intercala pequenas narraciones tambien escritas por el. El optimismo, la alegria de vivir y un estilo sencillo y directo, comprensible y accesible lo convierten en un libro de referencia. / One of the Best Books of the Year by NPR, you've never read a book like The Reason I Jump. ""It is no exaggeration to say that The Reason I Jump allowed me to round a corner in our relationship."" This translation was a labor of love by David and his wife, Yoshida, so they'd be able to share that feeling with the autism community. Naoki's book is a gift to be shared.
