Read full description of the books:
The Author of Diagnosing Jefferson introduces twelve more high-achieving role models who have made significant contributions to our world. Role models include: Einstein; Mozart; Darwin; Jefferson; Welles; Levent; Robeson; Curie; Mendel; Mozart; Bartok; Sagan; Gould; and Hartford. All exhibited traits common to people with Asperger's Syndrome. Today's young people and adults with AS can also make a difference if they are given support, opportunities, and the freedom to explore their abilities. Many accomplished people have been loners, self-taught, obsessed by an idea, and known for their lack of social skills. How many of them would be diagnosed with Asperger's today? Norm Ledgin makes convincing arguments for an Asperger's role in each of their extraordinary lives.

Read information about the authorNorm Ledgin blends adventure and romance into historical fiction, both in his "best Kansas books" selection The Jayhawker and in his latest, Sally of Monticello: Founding Mother.
His writings include the nonfiction Diagnosing Jefferson and Asperger's and Self-Esteem, the latter republished in France and containing conclusions used in the movie Adam and the novel House Rules, by Jodi Picoult. These early works led him to a national speaking tour in which he shared the platform with the autistic Dr. Temple Grandin.
The third president is the focus of Norm's blog. His knowledge has led to a continuing education instructor role with the University of Kansas, "Explaining the Perplexing Thomas Jefferson." He remains in popular demand as a speaker on a variety of subjects. He has also dabbled in mystery writing with Sour Notes and is at work on a sequel, Disharmony, both using operatic intrigues as paths to entertaining crime-solving.
The New Jersey native is a former newspaper editor. For two decades he was a prizewinning traffic safety specialist in Southwest Louisiana and the Kansas City area, then with wife Marsha he returned to newspaper editing and publishing in Illinois and Kansas.
Norm is a member of the Kansas Authors' Club, the Missouri Writers' Guild, and the Kansas City Writers' Group.
