book review: Wish I Could Be There (6-March)

Posted on 2011.05.16 at 15:41
This book was totally not my normal read. I don't even remember where I found this title. It was all science-y but sort of interesting. This guy has lots of phobias, about bridges and tunnels and therefore his life if quit small. He wrote about how he got this way, is it nature or nurture? Sort of a little of both. He talked about parents and their parents and his dad had some major issues. It didn't help that he (the writer) had a twin sister who was mentally disabled and put in a home at a young age and was only seen a few times a year by the family as they grew up. The book was supposed to be a mix of science and personal, but I found it way more science based and wish he had written more about his family life and growing up and how he is doing now, but that wasn't mentioned much. I don't really understand people with lots of phobias, but it wasn't that annoying of a read that it could have been. I should pick up more books that aren't normally what I read. I just get so annoyed, so easily. This was one of the better ones.
