The Journal of Best Practices

     David Finch's marriage is in trouble until he is diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.   Since social cues are so hard for him to notice, he begins journaling notes to remind him how to become a better husband.  Each chapter is a specific area, like, "Laundry: Better to fold and put away than to take only what you want from the dryer."  The result is The Journal of Best Practices: A Memoir of Marriage, Asperger Syndrome, and One Man's Quest to be a Better Husband.
     David tells his story with humor, honesty, and a bit of swearing.  I would have enjoyed it better if it hadn't hit so close to home.
