By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Tim Page was 45-years-old when he was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome - a high functioning autistic disorder. For Page, who just three years earlier had won the Pulitzer Prize as the Classical Music Critic for "The Washington Post," the diagnosis was a chance to take another look at his complicated childhood and his creative development. He's now written a book about his life with Asperger's and joins Doug to talk about how it actually contributed to his success. The book is called "Parallel Play: Growing Up with Undiagnosed Asperger's."
