The Reason I Jump
Based on David Mitchell and Naoki Higashida’s book 'The Reason I Jump', an illuminating and life-enhancing guide to Planet Autism – a planet that has very different laws from the one most of us inhabit.
The book, written when its autistic author was only 13, is now a bestseller in 27 languages, and since its publication in 2013 has become one of the world’s most widely-read guides to Autism, offering an extraordinary passport to another world.
