A Perfectly Weird Guide to Being Perfectly You

Dr Pang was diagnosed as autistic at the age of eight and saw the world differently. This book explores all the stages of life as readers grow up and explains them in the terms of scientific concepts. This is based on Dr Pang’s life and the fact that quite early on she realised that science with its tangible and logical patterns helped her understand all the things that seemed so strange and messy in ordinary life.

The book acknowledges that it is difficult growing up and becoming the person you want to be for everyone, but it uses that as a key into the scientific possibilities of understanding some of those difficult areas. These include things like stereotyping, how to handle emotions, dealing with pressure, finding your own personal passions to list just a few. This is a book that will be very useful to many people as it helps us look at and explain some of life’s intricacies and problems with a different perspective.

Ideal for PHSE collections and it will appeal across a wide cohort of young people.
