Publisher's Summary

Part memoir, part inspirational guide, Population One: Autism, Adversity and the Will to Succeed is a groundbreaking audiobook that offers listeners the ability to see life through the eyes of a young man with autism. Written by Tyler McNamer at the age of 17, Tyler not only details his challenges but also offers hope and encouragement to others who face seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Whether you're an educator, a family member of someone with autism, or simply looking for inspiration, you'll appreciate the opportunity to step inside this remarkable young man's mind.

As Tyler explains, "I've been called a retard, dumb, and disabled. I've been bullied, picked on, and made fun of. They put me in special classes and told me that I should not expect to reach my goals." Yet rather than view his diagnosis negatively, Tyler considers his unique viewpoint a gift. It is with this perspective that he wrote Population One: Autism, Adversity, and the Will to Succeed.

In this memorable audiobook, Tyler details his experiences with bullying, isolation, and others' low expectations of him. But rather than allowing himself to be limited by his autism diagnosis, this courageous and insightful young man rose above his challenges to encourage others to follow their dreams and become leaders in their own lives. The result is this audiobook, an autobiographical recounting of Tyler's journey with diverse essays containing his thoughts about leadership, courage, and adversity.

Wise beyond his years, Tyler concludes that despite our differences, we can become a population of one, uniting to serve others. If you want to be uplifted or understand someone with autism better, you must listen to Population of One. This inspirational and engaging audiobook will transform the way you view the world.
