    One thought on “Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8: A Young Man's Voice from the Silence of Autism

    1. Rebecca Foster on said:

      The Japanese term for autism is jiheisho or self locked up disease Severely autistic and almost completely non verbal, Naoki Higashida would indeed be locked inside himself were it not for his ability to communicate in written language via an alphabet grid words are bridges that connect me with others More so than in the previous English collection of his writings, The Reason I Jump perhaps simply because he s grown up by 10 years , I was impressed by how clearly he sees his situation and how d [...]

    2. Caren on said:

      The author, who has a nonverbal form of autism, has done an incredible job of allowing the reader inside his thought processes by means of thinking the characters of the Japanese alphabet, then mentally transcribing and touching the letters of the Roman alphabet on a homemade QWERTY keyboard A transcriber then takes down the words and slowly sentences are built The description of this process alone has to give you an enormous respect for the author It must have taken time and patience to write a [...]

      I m fairly ignorant on the subject of autism, meaning I have type knowledge of it I ve heard of Higashida s first book, an attempt to explain his severe autism to others, written when he was only 13 but this one sort of just fell into my hands and I decided to start with it It has definitely done for me what I expected it to, it s deepened my understanding and knowledge, and it s managed to surprise me enormously His explanations in plain, simple, precise language of various things among them wh [...]

    4. Jill Robbertze on said:

      Beautifully written by a non verbal young autistic man, this book gives a valuable insight into the life, dreams and perspectives of someone who is living with this challenge I found it very interesting how he describes his thought processes making it a little easier to understand the behaviours, meltdowns, rituals etc that we see to different degrees in those on the spectrum How wonderful that Naoki was able to be taught to communicate via his alphabet board and computer and has been able to sh [...]

    5. Magdelanye on said:

      Having just finished reading the impressive book, The Reason I Jump, written not so long before this one, I was bowled over by the maturity NH displays in this further account of his life and perceptions as a neuro atypical human being After the remarkable success of his first book, it would have been entirely acceptable for him to rest on the the laurels of his success, such a unique breakthrough I refuse to accept it when people view us as incomplete or partial human beings I prefer to believe [...]

    6. Laurie on said:

      Higashida is on the spectrum he was nonverbal for a long time and even today he struggles with expressing himself verbally he has what he calls restricted speech He finds it easier many times to use his computer or a spelling board to communicate When he was thirteen he wrote his first book, The Reason I Jump to try and explain some of his actions to neurotypical folks His new book, written as a 24 year old, takes that further, telling us what it s like to live in his world It includes some of h [...]

    7. Tweedledum on said:

      I thought The Reason I Jump was fascinating, but here Naoki has distilled his thoughts and ideas into nuggets of wisdom and insight that will be relevant to so many people Yet throughout we also discover the depths of the difficulties Naoki s faces each day in attempting to communicate in real time Mother s Day 2013 was one of most powerful cameos in the book as Naoki somehow managed to find the two words he needed to buy his mother a single flower for Mother s Day for the first time in his life [...]

    8. Kerran Olson on said:

      Spoken language is a blue sea Everyone else is swimming, diving and frolicking freely, while I m alone, stuck in a tiny boat, swayed from side to side This memoir is so eloquently written, and, like The Reason I Jump, gave me a lot insight into the life of someone with autism, this time from a mature, reflective perspective as the writing in this book was written during Higashida s teenage and young adult years This was a quick read as the chapters are very short, but I thoroughly enjoyed ever [...]

    9. Charmaine Greenan on said:

      Fantastically insightful, I wish I could prescribe this book to some people I only read The Reason I Jump a year ago and it s so moving to observe Naoki Higashida s growth I was particularly interested in the whole of section four and found chapter 39, on praise, resonated so much with my family s experience David Mitchell s introduction was interesting as always, particularly his musings on severe and mild autism.

    10. Steph Hayward-bailey on said:

      I loved this book again the author gives an amazing insight into an autistic person s thoughts and feelings I really enjoyed how the author has grown and his explanation and reasoning are in depth than in his first book I would recommend this book to anyone who cares for someone with autism as it would give them a deeper understanding of their behaviours, wants and needs.

    11. Anna Scheele on said:

      it was such a great experience to dive in i knew about autism and how we should react with them such a great courage Mr.Naoki has to express all of this in words we neurotypical people as he mentioned keep facing troubles in Saying what we want I really apreciate Your Hard work Thank you

    12. Karrie on said:

      I loved The Reason I Jump, it was unique and poignant and made this one top of my TBR pile Higashida shares of his outlook on living in a neuro typical world being atypical He covers everything from his parents to badminton to poetry I still find his observations fascinating and informative, but missed his use of metaphor from the first book A line that has stuck with me is in regards to helping those with special needs don t be the first one to walk away.

    13. Margaret Bamford on said:

      Brilliant book that really impressed me with the feelings that were expressed and the way that problems were dealt with The patience that must have been used to write this book is amazing and I admire the writer for opening our eyes so that we can experience his life.

    14. Carol on said:

      Previously, I have read The Reason Why I Jump by Naoki Higasida I just looked back at my review of that book and everything that I said in that review is valid for this book too I read this book because of my brother who has severe autism I think that having learned a special keyboard when younger has enabled the author to be able to communicate his thoughts and feelings with his family and others I wish that I could some way to get through to my brother that there are others like him As far as [...]

    15. Catherine Coles on said:

      Elegantly and precisely written, this thoughtful memoir translated from Japanese by author David Mitchell provides a glimpse into the mind of a non verbal autistic man It is proof that you should never discount someone, no matter how outwardly severe their disability Admittedly, it had trouble holding my attention at times, but its lessons and unique perspective made it worthwhile instagram p BXYSoaoDj

    16. christinemm on said:

      If you know or love anyone with autism who is nonverbal you already know you wish you knew what they were thinking or feeling If their facial expression does not show emotion we wonder do they feel We have been told the people with autism do not have deep thoughts, they do not think philosophically or about the meaning of life In Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8, Naoki Higashida shares his thoughts and explains his emotions and thought processes, he is able to use a keyboard to communicate via text Ov [...]

    17. Julie Spratt on said:

      I read this book in one sitting and found it inspiring I work with young people with autism and other communication disorders and also have a son with the same disorder Naoki offers an insight into how he feels and how he wants to be seen and treated Spending time in special schools I often see practices that I am uncomfortable with and Naoki explains how he feels when he has come across behaviors that he does not like or agree with Everything he writes makes sense and this is book that every te [...]

    19. Wendy on said:

      Having already written an international best seller The Reason to Jump at thirteen, Naoki Higashida a twenty four year old young man from Chiba, Japan restricted by severe, non verbal autism has put his thoughts, feelings and experiences into another compelling novel, Fall Down 7 Times Get up 8 which I won through Giveaways Beautifully written in short chapters he expresses his challenges, the anxieties and distractions that often muddle his brain and his difficulties in communicating Powerfully [...]

    20. Cherise on said:

      It s important to remember that this book isn t just one book, but pieces of Naoki s other work that has been released in Japan put into one book Personally, I think you can feel that It all follows a similar theme but doesn t always match with the stories around it Sadly, I believe like the first one, my ADHD brain had a hard time grasping everything being said in the chapters, my brain would glaze over after a few hours when I got too tired But I do believe that Naoki s writing was well done a [...]

    21. Kathleen on said:

      This book moved me in so many ways From David Mitchell s helpful introduction to the last chapter Mother s Day, 2013 , I was immersed in another world.Unlike some reviewers of this book, I do not have a family member with autism However, as a public school teacher I have had some students whose manifestations of autism are toward the Asperger s end of the continuum As an anthropologist, I have wanted to understand other s experiences and world views and to be enriched by this knowledgeFrom his m [...]

    22. Konstantin on said:

      rating B This is a nonfiction book about a book with severe nonverbal autism It is a fascinating look into the life of a neuro atypical child and his point of view on matters concerning himself and his disability Higashida is very aware of himself and it shows in his advise about autism and how neuro typical people can understand and help those with special needs The most interesting parts are when he describes his life and how he overcomes his panic attacks and other effects of his autism Altho [...]

    23. Susan on said:

      From the same young Japanese man with autism who wrote The Reason I Jump, this book provides insight into the mind of a non verbal person with autism It is fascinating, inspiring, and heartrending by turns and all at once Well worth your time to read, chapters are 1 to 3 pages only, so you can read a few bits at a sitting and then let them sink in The short essays are organized in broad themes of life, arranged by the editor There are some poems, too And a QA section When you realize how arduous [...]

    24. Sarah on said:

      Thank you to and the publisher for a free copy of Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8 I found this an exceptional read for two main reasons Firstly, so many times when I look up information on autism, I find things written by neurotypical parents, other family members, friends of people with autism, etc And while they certainly can share valuable information, I find myself wanting to read something by someone on the autism spectrum, someone who is experiencing things first hand This book does just that.S [...]

    25. Katie on said:

      I listened to this book through radio 4 as it is book of the week the book is from the perspective of a young man Naoki who has severe autism and is non verbal and he uses his computer to communicate his feelings about autism and how it has affected his relationships this is a sequel to The Reason I Jump written by the author at age 13 it illustrates that autism is a processing disorder and it has not impaired the authors cognitive functioning as he does not have a learning disability I work in [...]

    26. Ana on said:

      The slight formality of Higashida s tone not sure if it was present in the original Japanese or if it s a result of the translation pairs well with the almost philosophical content With clarity, precision, and warmth, the author interweaves practical everyday matters and frustrations with considerations of such broad ideas as self esteem, independence, and gratitude I don t think I ve ever seen someone talk about such abstract concepts with such down to earthness, and I found the book sort of me [...]

    27. Beth Withers on said:

      As a teacher of nonverbal young adults, I have the pleasure of having students with autism in my class I don t always know how their minds are working, and none of them can communicate like Naoki, but his stories, poems, and reflections certainly make me think about the way they view the world It makes me wish I could tap into some form of communication to release what s inside The only slight hesitation I have is that this book may give false hope where in reality there may be very little that [...]

    28. Donna Frasor on said:

      A second book by a 24 year old man with severe nonverbal autism, written 11 years after his first The Reason I Jump He explains in short, easy to read chapters his thought processes, experiences, perspectives, dreams that shape his world It certainly enlightened me and would any neurotypical reader with a deeper understanding and knowledge of the world of autism Equally important is the introduction written by David Mitchell, author and translator, who also has a son with autism He shares the in [...]

    29. Lynn on said:

      Naoki Higashida has severe autism and is considered nonverbal though he can say a few words and make sounds His communication is done through a QWERTY board, both on a manual board and on computer Naoki wrote a book at age 14 that was surprising and a sensation because a nonverbal person with autism has never write book before This book is a sequel and Naoki is now an adult and speaking for acceptance and respect as one Written in short chapters and from magazine articles, this is a book that ma [...]
